About US:

Is it black with white stripes? Or is it white with black stripes?
Is it music with comedy? Or comedy with music?
Lets just call it entertainment!


Wim & Siphe were in the bar together and started singing to “Little Lion Man” by Mumford & sons.
We realised we harmonized amazingly together and decided to start a band!
We performed at the Open Mic Night at Aandklas Hatfield and Zebra was formed!

Wim then wrote a song about a girl, which happened to be New York.
We performed it and crowds reaction was great!

We started writing a ton of music and then Ivan joined us to create a fresh vibe and great sound.

We have opened for Jack Parow, PHfat, Locnville & Beatenburg!

MA: Hello guys, it’s really cool to be chatting, how you doing today?

A bit hungover but ready for action.

MA: Please give us a quick 101 on who Zebra are? Where in SA are you from and how did you get started in the music scene?

We are a pub theatre band that started off in Pretoria. We basically started off with Wim and Siphe doing open mic nights in Pretoria, where Ivan and Duncan joined us afterward and the rest is a hangover.

MA: What are some of your musical influences?

Each member brings their own influences to the band but we are mainly influenced by our lives in general.

We’re currently working on releasing our first single and accompanying music video. We also have new merchandise available with more on the way so be sure to keep an eye out.
