Rubber Duc

Since hatching in late 2013, Rubber Duc has taken the South African music scene by storm, and somewhat by surprise! Their very first single, “Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That” hit the charts at full flight and peaked at the number 2 spot on 5FM and East Coast Radio and made the top 10 on several other radio stations.

Starting out as a trio consisting of Nick Jordaan, Brendan Campbell and Sheldon Sham, the DUCs have grown not only in reputation, but also in size! Amiel Gopal has just joined the band, adding spice to their already quirky and unique sound, which they describe as “folk-swing-hop”.

They’ve gathered a fine flock of followers and a ‘duckload’ of attention. And rightfully so: their sound is fun and authentic, with cheerful, catchy melodies and clever lyrics that stick in your mind… and make you want to dance. In addition to performing original material, they do a mean job of “ducking up” covers with such playful passion and sincere joy it’s simply impossible not to like them!
