Benny Michel October 2013, a set on Flickr.Last month Benny Michel, one of South Africa's finest musicians, celebrated his 90th Birthday in Johannesburg. His daughter Estelle was in the country for this special occasion from Sydney.
My father Willie played in Bennie's band after the second World War and their meeting in recognition of Benny's 90th was a very special occasion as Benny played at my parents wedding in 1950. My Mom Rhona also enjoyed this special occasion as well as cousin Lou Michel who undertook the journey with us from Pretoria on the day.
Thank you Benny for making our visit so special. Thank you also Estelle for arranging this visit and thank you for allowing me to shoot some images as a memory.
