About the band…

Having met whilst studying jazz & popular music at UKZN back in 2010, founder members of the band, brothers Devon & Brayden Hore (Drummer & Bassist) teamed up with talented guitarist Mthunzi Mchunu (Mo). The trio, with their shared passion for Ballads, Swing, Smooth & African jazz, as well as commercial/pop with a jazz element, have establishing themselves as a go-to-band in KZN under the name 5TH SEASON (meaning an exciting and new season in music), and have travelled the province since, exposing their talents at various functions consisting of mainly Private Functions, Corporate events & weddings.

The Trio expanded its musical offering to include the extremely versatile vocalist Janice Joseph, also a product of UKZN. Janice’s voice compliments the talents of the musicians & in short, completes 5TH SEASON as a band.


The ethnically diverse and proudly South African Durban based band 5th Season released their debut album last year October 2015.

The album “Symmetry” is the result of many, many months of planning & reflects the bands diversity and heritage. It is a blend of re-arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions, and is collectively very easy listening, which will no doubt appeal to the more discerning music lover.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
