The technicians are Kassim and Gazab.
Founded back in 2002, The band specializes in a variety of music such as pop rhythm and blues, rock and roll, jazz,african etc, making it the hottest, interactive & most reliable Band in town. Being one of the bands in Nairobi that i got to watch perfom at Moca Loca cafe, they do not disappoint. Jemo’s prowess at the saxophone always gets the audience enchanted and applauding thunderously after each item. Malesha’s all powerful vocals too will always make you want to get up and shake a leg as she switches effortlessly from one song to another no matter the genre. From Alisha Chinai’s ‘Made in India’ song (Apparently my favorite 😀 ) to Khadija Kopa’s ‘Nasema Nawe’, she knows how to captivate the audience.
About their greatest challenge, Jemo said “The biggest is finding the right mood the crowd is in. You have to look for ways to make the crowd happy, so you are forced to try different songs from different genres to see which will move the fans.”
Weavers Band performs at corporate functions, weddings, restaurants etc. Their sister group GRAVITY ENTERTAINMENT provides Dj services, musical equipment for hire and big sound re-enforcement.
If you are ever in Nairobi Make sure to catch them this and every Thursday at Privée Westlands, and every Sunday at Moca Loca cafe at Garden City Mall.
