The songs
The band has enough original material for a 3 hour show.

The repertoire includes blues such as Kêfie Blues written by Jacques in 1979, Midnight True Blues (1990), Moerse Boere Blues (2003), Handvol in die wind (1980), and the laid back jazzy blues number I sleep alone tonight (1990).

Some songs are straight driving rock numbers, such as Suspisicion (1989), Fires burning low (1989), and Augustus (1977), while Winter (1980) en Dwaal (1978, with Latin-Americans salsa beat) are smooth rock numbers.

There are also ballads: Weet jy, Dagger of your look (1989) and Applous (1992). The song Wat ek wil hê (1990) is in the reggae style, while Seil na jou (1978) is a kind of 50s/60s shoo-be-doo-wah song.

And then there are the folky Mother Africa (1992), and Die storm kom (1978).
