About

Astro & the Intergalactic Space Monks are a Jazz Fusion ensemble, and the band comprises of Keith “Astro” on vocals and violin, Pieter on guitar, Ayo on keys, Osas on bass, Ire on drums and Linda on sax. We have opened for, and played with various big South African bands that include, but are not limited to The Sextons, Francois van Coke and many more. The band plays various genres, from behop, smooth jazz, jazz funk, psych rock and acid jazz to Latin, sounds of the world and RnB. We also have our debut EP in the pipeline, and recently launched an acoustic live jazz piece, ‘Flicker’, in conjunction with TuksFM 107.2.  The band also recently landed its highly acclaimed residency show at Johannesburg’s oldest bar, The Good Luck Bar, starting 17th of September, in conjunction with Mausay Media and Tuks FM 107.2, with News24 and Channel24.co.za reviewing it as “One of the four gigs to keep you warm this weekend” alongside Majozi, Celtic Woman and so many more legendary acts.
