THE same way they say you have not been to Lusaka if you haven’t been to Matero township, is the same way those here say you haven’t been to Livingstone if you haven’t been to Limpo’s Pub and Restaurant.
The nightspot, situated along the Mosi-oa-Tunya road, is a hive of activities, but passing there during the day, one would think the place is boring. But it’s not.
Apart from its food, the place is known for its taste in music.
The Limpo’s Live Band, resident there, draw a crowd and so does the poolside bar with the likes of DJ Dell Fresh and DJ Shipwe.
Last weekend, it was business as usual for the Limpo’s live band. The band started small and has today grown in many areas.
It has gone on to be among the most sought-after bands in the tourist capital. If the band is not playing at Limpo’s, it’s busy playing at some corporate function somewhere.
Playing covers of some local and also international artistes is what the band does and on its playlist last weekend included songs such as Bob Marley’s No woman no cry, Busy Signal’s one more night and even Chester’s most happening song, banjo.
Other songs that found themselves on the playlist included Tiye P’s Anajaila ine, Rich Bizzy’s chimwemwe dance, and some of PK Chishala’s old hits.
Even without the usual female dancers, whom it is believed were playing somewhere, the band still managed to dazzle party-goers, thanks to Courts, the lead vocalist.
While the band was busy entertaining those live music fanatics, Dell Fresh and Shipwe, on the hand, were also busy entertaining the other class of patrons on the poolside bar.
Despite business owners in the area accusing the nightspot of disturbing the peace of the tourist capital through noise pollution, Limpo’s Pub and Restaurant still draws crowds.
“I read about this place on trip advisor and I just had to include it on my to-visit places. I love the music,” said one American tourist only identified as Alexandria.
