The Great Apes are a blues-rock band out of Cape Town. Under the influence of old blues legends like Muddy Waters and Odetta, this band has alot of soul. Layers of spirit and primal noise create a monster of seductive rock ‘n roll. The five apes include Yusif Sayigh on vocals, Pienaar Du Plessis in control of rhythm guitar, Antonie Gunter mastering feedback on lead guitar, Jacques Stemmet grooving base and Jaekan Coetzee smashing drums. They have played at various venues throughout South Africa – check out their song Mad Again/I’m Bad Like Jesse James here.
