Jeremy Loops has been making waves in the local music industry over the last few years. This one-man folk band sensation hails from Cape Town and has become renowned for his awesome live performances.
Jeremy Loops isn’t your traditional one-man folk band though. He creates music on the spot with his loop pedal, ukulele, harmonica, beatbox, guitar and excellent musical skills. Since playing a whole set in front of people can get boring on your own, he’s usually joined by guest artists on stage during his show to liven things up a bit.
Jeremy Loops has played at every major music festival in South Africa over the last few years. In 2012 he played at the Wesley’s Dome stage at Oppikoppi Sweet Thing in front of more than 8,000 people. He also performed at Mieliepop (in Mpumalanga) and Rocking the Daisies (in the Western Cape). Jeremy and his supporting artists also toured Gauteng last year. One of the highlights of his tour was his performance at Park Acoustics at the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria (which attracted more than 1,500 people).
The music Jeremy Loops creates is 100% original and has to the potential to get you tapping your feet to the beat or dancing like you’ve never danced before. Just ask anyone who has seen him perform live and they’ll tell you. Most audiences are awe-struck when they see Jeremy Loops perform.
