The Narrow Multiverse
The show will feature three original members of the band, and four guest artists, each chosen by the band for their individual contribution to hard rock in South Africa over the years.
The three original members include Emile de Jong (guitar), Jo Feldtmann (bass) and Deon Kruger (guitar). The four guest artists include Kobus de Kock Jnr (vocals), Cito (vocals), Gideon Karstens (vocals) and Jason Oosthuizen (drums).
After 17 years, the band is giving fans the opportunity to become a part of their history. Performing with a unprecedented line-up and various special guests on the night, the band will present an exceptional production to thank fans for their support over the years.
THE NARROW MULTIVERSE will feature not only the band’s own songs, but also the songs which inspired them through the course of almost two decades at the forefront of South Africa’s alternative rock scene.
Totalling a line-up of seven top musicians, fans can look forward to a nostalgic evening with hard rock music like only THE NARROW can.
Where does the name come from?
Jason Oosthuizen: To be honest I think the name that we went with was Jow or Emile’s idea as we all had ideas but one of theirs was Multiverse which had a nice ring to it, so we went with it.
Emile de Jong: Its a play on the Spiderman movie with same idea behind it. In every alternate universe there’s a band called The Narrow but with different combinations of members.
What can fans expect of the 2nd of August?
Jason Oosthuizen: This show is really for rock lovers. It is over two hours of pure rock n roll featuring all bands that inspired The Narrow and The Narrow‘s sound. From metal bands like Metallica to the Grunge sounds of Radiohead through to the pop rock sound of Jimmy Eat World this show will make anyone born in the 80’s take a super awesome ride down memory lane.
Emile de Jong: The show will be combination of awesome cover songs anthems that influenced the Narrow’s sound through the years and also the Narrow classics sung by great rock vocalists. So its gonna be a great nostalgic sing-a-long night for sure!
Give us a glimpse of which songs fans can expect?
Jason Oosthuizen: To mention a few classics I’d say Creep from Radiohead, Higher from Creed, Unforgiven Metallica, Alive from P.O.D and 28 more to make up one awesome night of Rock n Roll!
Emile de Jong: Time span of the songs are from late 90s to mid 2000’s to give you an idea. So from grunge to new metal hits. Al I can say is these songs will have you Wake Up and listed and feel Alive gain and take you Higher then ever… …Even if you feel Lonely and Unforgiven.
Can we expect more shows after that?
Jason Oosthuizen: I think that will all depend on turnout now at Rivonia as I have seen some interest in Cape Town so maybe I will book the show down there later this year. One never really knows where the wind will blow this project so we just hold tight and go with the vibe.
Emile de Jong: Yes we really hope that this night will be a great success and we can do shows across the country.
