Celebrate Wembley College’s 20th Anniversary


This year the Wembley College Duck Derby is bigger and better than ever before. If you were entertained last year, you are going to be knocked off your feet this year. The energy, the vibe of five top South African bands playing over one weekend, will be etched into your memory.

Don’t miss out on the biggest party to hit Wembley College in two decades. This is the time to celebrate our success. Come on Wembley College let’s make history.



Pieter Smit will be one of the performing artists at Wembley College’s Duck Derby during the first weekend of September

Pieter Smit is one of our performers. He was born in Potchefstroom. He is the youngest of three children. He started playing guitar when he was four years old and by the time he was seven, he played at professional events. After school, he became a music teacher and taught at Laerskool Queenswood. He felt unfulfilled and would sing in Hatfield square in Pretoria for, “‘n appel en ‘n ui”.

Pieter Smit is one of a handful of artists who writes his own lyrics. His first album was published in 2001 and he has gone on to produce many other albums. Steve Hofmeyer named Pieter Smit the “partytjiemaker of the decade and of our land” with the funniest and most original lyrics in his songs. If you think you are going to sit with your arms crossed at this show, then you have made a mistake. At a Pieter Smith concert, you will sing along and dance to the music whether you are old or young. His shows are full of energy. One of the high points in his show is his guitar solo.

Die Rowers will rock your socks off at the Wembley College Duck Derby



Another “rocking” Afrikaans band is, Die Rowers which is made up of four band members – Lethokuhle Banda, Albie Rautenbach, Abel Knobel, Johannes Viviers and Jandre Potgieter who sing anything from Boeremusiek like Kaptein, Shut Up and Dance, La Banda, to your favourite sokkies. Their gigs have been described as “dit gaan een vir die boeke wees” and “dit gaan kook”. Don’t miss out on this party!

Last but not least is “Saarkie” who are three beautiful, talented musicians. They are a rock and roll band from Pretoria. These three girls have an unbelievable passion for music. They play rock and commercial songs in Afrikaans and English. Adele Fouche is the lead singer on guitar. Lila Botha is on drums and Lourene Mostert is on bass guitar and keyboard.

They are an all-girl sensation.
