Five times SAMA-nominated, MTV MAMA Award-winning band, Gangs of Ballet is a Durban-based trio. Each accomplished musicians in their own right, the band’s members - Brad Klynsmith (vocals/electric guitar), Jonathan Rich (keyboards/synth) and Josh Klynsmith (drums) - have combined their various individual tastes and styles to create a sound that is captivatingly fresh.

Their music, which boasts a winning combination of their vibrant energy and a host of musically-intriguing melodies, cannot be pinned down to any specific genre, but rather experiments with an eclectic mix of alternative, melodic, anthemic, electronic and dance.

Originally formed as a side-project, Gangs of Ballet came into official existence at its debut gig opening for aKing in July of 2011. Their first single, “Breaking the Silence”, was released in September of 2011 and ended up with a spot on 5fm's list of the Top 100 Hottest Hits of 2011.

With their combined wealth of talent, experience and creativity, these three Durbanites hope to make a quality contribution to South Africa’s growing music scene and it would appear that they are already well on their way to their way to doing just that.
