Both Bobby Wellins and Pinise Saul were two of our great ‘friends’ here at the Vortex. Both selfless, warm-hearted and lovers of their music. Bobby played regularly on Saturday nights, especially in Church Street. Pinise was part of Township Comets, the tribute to Dudu Pukwana, led by Adam Glasser and Chris Batchelor.
I well recall the duo concert of Kate Williams with Bobby a few years back. Totally acoustic, the audience sat rapt all night.
