Bad Peter will be performing at the Scarlet Room from 19:00 – 14:00 and is an energetic band that really has a passion for jamming, performing and making music live! They often tell one another if neither one of their guitars break during this performance they’re not giving it their all. This might sound like a strange thing to hear from guys playing acoustic but they love putting all their energy into performing, and that’s what makes them such a joy to watch. Be sure not to miss this one night in Bloemfontein. Only performance! No cover, perfect excuse to get an early start to the weekend!
