“If you like your music heavy and with a positive message (like I do) – Whill and the boys deliver it in spades!” * Deon Kruger – The Narrow

With a zealous passion, ThunderMerwe takes to the stage like a Tsunami, sending walls of auditory magnificence crashing through the audience waiting in anticipation in the mosh-pit below. Creating a solid musical experience with no language or genre barriers so that anyone can immerse themselves in it. The band encourages listeners to find their own truth and meaning though all of life’s obstacles.

“Whill and his troops have put the thunder back into the music scene, Joburg’s most creative and inspirational band.” *Fred Otto – Owner Rumours Lounge

ThunderMerwe’s members have had the opportunity to share massive stages with well-known international acts like; Underoath, Becoming the Archetype and Haste the Day, and frequently being invited to play alongside local headline acts like The Narrow, Van Coke Cartel, Straatligkinders and Bittereinder, to name a few.

“Energetic Inspirational 4-piece bounce rock group from JHB ready to conquer all and make a difference. They reach out and touch lives through their music! They bring the Bounce to all their shows.” *Gert Botes – Sabbath events

In 2013, ThunderMerwe was named band of the year by top live music venue Rumours Lounge. In the same year they also won the Emerging Sounds finals beating out hundreds of bands to walk away with the 2013 title, that in previous years has served as a springboard for the careers of renowned acts like: Seether (Saron Gas), the Parlotones, Prime Circle, Freshly Ground and Taxi Violence.

“If there is one band, one show I would love to see on a big festival stage, it would be that of ThunderMerwe; A crowd of 5000+ … “Bounce” *Angie Venter – Heart of Music

Off the back of their successful demo albums, with tracks featuring on various radio stations like: West Coast Radio Namibia, Zone Radio, MFM , Eurotrash music as well as a video that features on MK, ThunderMerwe have exciting plans for their fans in 2014.
ThunderMerwe currently enjoys sponsorship from Toms and Music Connection, a testament to their musical abilities and professionalism.

Being well versed in social issues, evident in not only their songs and lyrics, but also their charitable endeavors means that Thundermerwe shows have a strong affiliation to reaching out and helping those in need. Food and clothing brought by their loyal fans are then distributed amongst charity organizations.
Their unique style of Electro Bounce Rock and Acoustic sets resonates magnificently with fans and fellow muso’s alike. The latter translating into successful collaborations with the likes of “Bittereinder” and up-and-coming electro producer C4IN.

Thundermerwe. We’ll make you bounce.
