BeatenbergWe caught up with the charming guys from the SA trio Beatenberg, and if you know anything about local music the three-piece pop band will be no stranger to your ears.

Read here to find out everything about the guys, from inspirations, relationships and everything in between.

What’s your idea of a perfect date?
