I agree with all the reviews written about these 3 talented, friendly, genuine people who entertained us all evening with their beautiful voices and music, along with the wine, great dinner that Joey prepared, and the special ice cream sundae with Amarula. We had heard about Magic Moments from some friends, and true to their word, the evening was one of the most fun, happy and wonderful experiences we had along the Garden route (and actually more than we expected or were prepared for). We were only there for a few hours, but felt that we had made 3 new friends that evening in Barry's home! He picked us up and brought us back to our hotel, made each of us a CD of their songs that they had performed that evening (some were Barry originals!) and even had a guitar for my husband to play for a couple of songs. I highly recommend making a reservation to visit with Barry, Sissy and Joey for a wonderful, magical evening that you'll never forget!

If you are reading this you are like me and put research into your holiday plans. A few months ago I was reading someone else's review here on tripadvisor about how great Magic Moments was and that "Susan Boyle moment". Even though I had been prepared for it, there is nothing that can accurately describe the feeling when Barry starts playing the intro on his fantastic keyboard and Sissy comes in with her opener. It immediately puts you at ease that you have made a great decision to visit Magic Moments.

We stopped in Oudtshoorn on a drive between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town and stayed with Barry and Sissy. Although we only spent a few hours with them it felt like we were with family and by the time we left it felt we were leaving friends behind. It was the penultimate evening of our two week trip in South Africa and its Garden Route and was the perfect end to a great trip. Barry and Sissy are such warm people and the love they have for each other, what they are doing and others just flows throughout the whole evening. Joey is an excellent cook and great singer and rounds off the trio of talent nicely. Barry's original songs are also excellent.

I hope they can enter Britain's Got Talent one day and share themselves with the world. Deserves to be as highly rated as it is on this site.

This was one of the best experiences we had when traveling the Garden route, and definitely the best one in Oudtshoorn. Sisi, Barry and Joey were very friendly and even arranged accomodation for us during the arts festival. Joey is a fantastic cook and a great singer, just as Sisi. And Barry realy knows how to handle that synthesizer. Wonderful evening with music, wine, good food and great people! Recommended for everybody!
