Who we are and what we do

ALMOST FAMOUS is a funky, dynamic and extremely well-polished professional 5-piece band from Cape Town, South Africa. 


The band focuses exclusively on performing at corporate functions, product launches, conferences and private events including weddings, birthday parties and New Year’s celebrations. Our well thought out repertoire is well suited to all ages and occasions.


Our chemistry and presence on stage is magnetic as we take our audiences down a musical journey performing all the well-known party hits from past to present. With a very versatile repertoire consisting of songs from the 60’s to the most current hits there is something for everyone to enjoy.


ALMOST FAMOUS was formed in March 2006 and since inception has played to audiences locally, nationally and internationally.


Some of the highlights include having been invited to perform at a new year’s celebration for the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Dubai, the king of Swaziland at the SATNAC conference at the Swazi Sun and in Cape Town during the U2 concert, ALMOST FAMOUS played to thousands of fans as they made their way to the stadium.
