Cock and Shoot Ensures Events Rock

Riversands entrepreneurs Jerry Shabangu and Andries (Scooby) Makgato from Cock and Shoot (derived from cocktails and shooters) are the guys to call when it comes to mobile bars at events.

The company recently celebrated its fifth birthday and there have been some lessons on the way! For example, when engaging with event organisers (who are Cock and Shoot’s clients), they soon realised that a separate cocktail bar attracts attention away from event sponsors (usually premium alcohol brands), which led to them pivoting to offer full bar services at events.

This year was the first time the crew was commissioned to do winter events and they were asked to do the bar for a Durban July after party.

“We are able to take our crews to places as far afield as Maseru, Durban and even Maputo. One of the main things we love about Riversands Incubation Hub is the fact that it’s open 24 hours a day,” explained Shabangu.

 

“The team often finishes a gig in the wee hours of a Sunday morning and I previously had to store all the equipment and alcohol at home because the storage facility we had was closed. That would mean packing and unpacking a second time on the Sunday – by myself! With the premises, we finish the gig, load up the team, then all come to Riversands to unload into our unit,” he said.
