Mia Grundlingh – 10 September 2016 

“Established Cape Town musical performers, Thomas de Bruin and Albert Combrink, consistently continue to dazzle, daze and delight South African music lovers on Cape Town turf, throughout the seasons. With the combined sheer precision, technical “savoir-faire” and professional approach to the their carefully selected musical pieces,they transport their audiences to truly magical worlds. The finely-tuned finesse of the music comes to the foreground, when De Bruin and Combrink commence to play. Their repertoire is varied, diverse and provides the audience with both a historical glimpse of the origins of the music consists of well known excerpts from operas such as ; “La Bohème”, and pieces such as South American tangos and Céline Dion classics, and from French composer, Claude Debussy.

De Bruin, soothes the soul softly, whilst Combrink carefully taps every single note with precision and perfect poise. The synergy between the musical performers, transfers to audience members to mysterious mazes in their minds, they may possible rarely access. Combrink and De Bruin have the ability to strike a note may trigger a memory, a longing and ephemeral thought about somewhat distant places, long lost locations or forlorn, faded thoughts.

Be sure not to miss their all pervasive powerful performances in the prospective future.”

“Having a flute playing while walking down the aisle and at the end of our ceremony added a magic to our wedding day that we will never forget. Thomas has a large and varied repertoire that entertained our guests after the ceremony. All our guests were impressed and loved the idea of a flute as background music. We would recommend Thomas to any couple that would a live musician at their wedding.”

Estelle & Robbie – 9 May 2015

“We had the privilege to have Thomas playing magnificent crystal clear soothing flute background music at our wedding on 9 May 2015 at De Malle Meul, Philadelphia, Cape Town.

The variety of his classical, symphony, old time favorite and local music was well suited for the occasion and much talked about and praised by all the guests during and afterwards, to such an extend that Thomas was booked the very same night by one of the local restaurant owners from The Pepper Tree, to play at their restaurant the following day, on Mothers Day.

We can surely and proudly recommend Thomas for any occasion such as weddings, executive functions or romantic dinner parties etc.  You Rock Thomas !!”
