THE BIGGEST GREEK Show EVER! @ TSG4WAYS


TSG Fourways, formerly known as Tony’s Spaghetti Grill and re branded to TSG, has become an ideal eatery for those in and around the Fourways vicinity over the years. This vibrant cafĂ© is considered to be a favourite family spot, with a spacious interior tastefully done to please your dining moods and delightful dining facilities available in the courtyard, balconies and decks spots.

ON THE MENU At TSG, you will experience tasty Italian, Mediterranean, Grills and Sushi which are all prepared using the freshest and highest quality ingredients. South African and vegetarian recipes are also on the menu. In addition, TSG has an excellent offering of the finest champagnes and sparkling wines. TSG offers an excellent breakfast buffet on weekends and public holidays, which is popular among the working crowd.

Two things that add to the uniqueness of TSG, is its extravagant events and its designated dance floor that opens up between 10pm and 10:30pm.

I am a resident DJ at TSG every Saturday and have been so for a number of months now. I sat down with Warren Basel (Owner) and had a long chat with him about hosting our next Greek evening. Together we decided to join forces and host a "The Biggest Greek Show EVER", a Greek night simply not to be forgotten, for all the Greeks of Johannesburg and for anyone who would like to attend an eventful evening celebrating a very special day in my life, my birthday, which is on the 16th July.

Entertainment for the evening has been arranged, I (DJ Alexi) alongside DJ Punch will be spinning the decks, we have Belly dancers, Fire Shows, yip that correct "Fire Shows" (things are getting heated up already, i just hope our Insurance policy covers that) and two very close friends of mine Stavro and Pavlo Christophi (who I have worked with on numerous occasions at events), have joined to the entertainment, with what will be an outstanding evening. Plates will also be available for patrons to break, after all, what is a Greek evening without Breaking Plates?



The Biggest Greek Show EVER is scheduled for the 14 July 2012, from 7pm, at;

TSG Fourways, Leaping Frog Centre, Cnr William Nicol and Mulbarton Roads, Fourways.

I had the great opportunity to interview Mr John Vlismas live on air Friday 24 February 2012, promoting a new way for standup comedy in South Africa. On the last Monday of every month John arranges a group of comedians for live standup comedy on a stage, in a movie house and in front of an audience eating popcorn and slush puppy.


As part of Whacked’s initiative to grow and showcase young comedic talent in South Africa, owners Taffia Keight (newly appointed) and John Vlismas believe that it is time to change the nature of their comedy “playground”.

“When the Underground closed its doors, we felt we were at a crossroads – we could either find a way to clone what we started, or we could look to evolve the idea, and set a new challenge,” says Taffia, “Well, we don’t copy anyone, not even ourselves.”

The first CineComedy event took place on Thursday 1 March at 8pm at CineCentre, Killarney Mall. Listen to the interview from my mixcloud page:


The next Cinecomedy event takes place tonight 25 June 2012 at the CineCentre in Killarney Mall at 8pm.

JOHN VLISMAS will be your host for the evening with some of South Africa’s best talent on the Line up:

TUMI MORAKE, MALCOLM FERREIRA, MPHO “POPPS” MODIKOANE, RICHELIEU BEAUNOIR and SIMMI AREFF

Please note that line-up is subject to change and comedy carries an age restriction of 18

I was born in South Africa and come from Greek heritage, born the 16 July 1983 which makes me a Cancerian. My hobbies include motocross riding, soccer, DJ’ing and music production.

I am a Radio DJ, programming producer and voice over artist at Hellenic Radio, 14.22MW and can also be found via cyberspace on www.hellenicradio.org.za. I host the afternoon Drive Time show every Friday (4-7pm) and a music show every Saturday (4-6pm). The Show is done in both English and Greek.

I have been in Radio since 2006 after I completed a short term Radio Presenting course at Boston Media House and was given the opportunity to host the Saturday 4-6pm slot at Hellenic Radio. I did that for 1 year, after which in 2007 I was given the Saturday and Sunday 4-6pm slots, in 2008 I was given the opportunity to host the afternoon drive time slot weekdays 4-7pm, A goal I had set upon joining Hellenic Radio.

I record every Fridays Show and post them up on Mixcloud along with some of my DJ Mixes and interviews I have done and will be doing on my radio show.

My Passion for Radio and the Media persisted throughout my endeavors at Hellenic Radio, so I decided to further my studies in 2011 and enrolled, full time, at Boston Media House for a diploma in Media Studies majoring in Radio and Journalism.

I Say goals, whether they are short term or long term are a very important aspect in anyone’s life, I have always set goals in life and have managed to achieve them. The sheer satisfaction, glory and the rewards after achieving those goals is priceless. I always say, “In Life, hard work, doing good onto others and positive thinking, always gets a person far”.

I have been a DJ for over 14 years now and a Radio Personality for 6, I enjoy every minute of it and my blog will cover anything from DJ ing, DJ equipment and Events to everyday sports, news and current affairs. I look forward to hearing your views and comments on anything I shall be writing about. Interaction between us will be of the utmost importance to me and I will try my utmost best to answer any questions that may arise.
