Reviews: Graham Gillot Band
The artists have different musical backgrounds and international experience:
Graham's quiet unassuming gentle manner belies the talent of an extraordinary and constantly rising new century Guitar Maestro. Graham accomplished something of a study record by obtaining Grade 8 Classical Guitar with Merit in only 2 years of study through Trinity College, London. In the UK, Graham performed at the Bournemouth Music Festival as well as the International London Meula. He then went on to play for various bands, including the Jesse Jordan Band. He also sessioned for DNA Strings and even played for the internationally-recognised Rodriquez.
Duncan has a B. Mus majoring in Clarinet from Stellenbosch University. He is a music teacher at Parel Vallei High School, developing ensembles which focus on Rock, Jazz and Drumline. His other forte is corporate teambuilding with Djembe drums and instrument building workshops, offering businessmen and women a taste of the wonderful world of music. Duncan is a master instrumentalist playing over 8 instruments including banjo, sax, clarinet, bass, keyboard and guitar.
Jeane is an accomplished pianist, drummer and percussionist, with Grade 8 in these instruments. Following in her fathers music footsteps she teaches full time. In the Helderberg basin Jeane plays extensively for musical shows and on the Corporate scene she facilitates djembe drumming sessions.
