stolen horses

Deon 'Horse Whips' Bakkes
Guitars, Vocals, Kazoo
Mastermind. Drifter. Probably from Balkan blood lines. Plotting to take over the world with his gypsy jazzpunk sound.
Stephen 'Speedy Hooves' Kosterman
Guitars, Vocals
Six-string slinger extraordinaire. He’s got licks faster than bullets and a quick draw to match.
Raziela 'Razzberry Juice' Kosterman
Violin, Vocals
The silly filly on the flighty fiddle. She plays the violin like velvet, and her cat ears will confuse you just before she strikes.
Lehlohonolo 'El Nino' Ntsoko
Tenor Saxophone
Stormbringer. You know you’ve heard his saxophone wail when the air temperature rises.
Sophia ‘Mittens Kittens’ Niemand
Accordion
Sweet saloon gal with claws made for keys. She won’t hesitate to strike and bite in the musical fight.
Garnet 'Thrash Bone' Muller
Trombone
The young gun with the slidey thingy. If you’re not careful, you’ll get shot.
SL Leroux 'Slack Liner' Minnaar
Bass
A true wild boy that stomps the deep frequencies as he puffs a rollie smoke with reckless abandon.
Romeer 'Thunderdash' Gaņeśa
Drums
At home upon the drum throne, he swings with a sting that will split the earth.
Robyn 'Indigo Girl' Cameron
Poi and Hoops Dancer
Child of freedom. Bearer of circles. She brings light in the night.
Luka 'Flow Gremlin' Epstein
Poi and Hoops Dancer
He moves like water rushing towards an edge. Composed but chaotic. Spinning and grinning.

    It was my first time at Railways: Eclectic at best, or at worst a bit weird in a cool way. Decor is whatever they could find in the second-hand store, and they just decided to hang it up. Steel bath tubs and spring-loaded bed frames line the walls like blocked out windows...

    The Republic of Mieliepop 2018 is only one month away, and since Deon Bakkes and The Stolen Horses is probably the only horse-related band on the lineup, we aimed to get off our high horses, speak to the dark horse Deon himself, and get the goods straight from the horse’s mouth..
