Sound Image


Sound Image Band is one of Cape Town's most popular function bands, headed by celebrated guitarist Gary Deacon.   


The rest of the five-piece is made up of Cape Town's finest: Andrew Ford from VJR on keyboards, vocalists Haydn Gardner and Denay Willie, Willie van Zyl on saxes, clarinet and penny whistle, and Ivan Bell on drums.  


The quintet can be joined by an additional front vocalist to form a six-piece band.


The band's extensive repertoire includes practically all styles of sophisticated music - Swing, Dixieland, Latino, Traditional, Rock & Roll and Contemporary Popular Songs from the 60 ’s to the present (see Repertoire in right tab). The group can provide quiet sophisticated background music during dinner, and change to dance format when required.
