Stone Jets

Take a pop sensibility; add a bucket load of soul and a sprinkling of African rhythms and you’ll get Stone Jets — an outfit whose music simply cannot be pigeonholed.

The band from Cape Town - made up of Manfred Klose on guitars and Given Nkanyane on vocals and bass - creates toe-tapping music, wrapped in soul and traditional elements. Formed in 2013, songs from the trio’s first two EPs have been featured on South African national television and playlisted on commercial, campus, community radio stations across the country. They’ve played all of South Africa’s major festivals and continue to grow there fan base wherever they share their sound

With their multi-cultural background, Given and Manfred’s sound transcends boundaries. Their tunes cater to any taste while still staying true to their ethos.


James Morrison called them “amazingly talented” while others have raved about their live performances. After conquering their home country, the band is ready to share their magic with Europe.

According to Underground Press (SA) "Stone Jets are the most exciting, most happening band, currently gracing the local scene. Having already shared stages with Hugh Masekela and Majozi, with their eclectic style of music, these musicians are destined for greatness, and it shows."
