Welcome to the world of CRITICAL MASS - the 'Folk-Rock' Band.
Critical Mass music combines the Folk-Rock styles of Crosby, Stills and Nash through to the Progressive Rock of Pink Floyd. This Cape Town based band specialise mainly in late 60's to 70's style of music but have embraced more recent music that suits the Folk-Rock genre. A large part of any performance includes original music penned by members of the band. In 2013 Glenn Buys was a finalist and Best Original music songwriter in the Forever Young Music Competition. In 2011 the band were voted second in the Fipside original music competition.

Critical Mass performed a set at Pastis in Constantia on Sunday evening. Folk-Rock at the setting sun. There were some new songs introduced on the evening added to the usual mix of originals and cover songs. The more up tempo songs were most appreciated by the very full restaurant summer crowd.
Critical Mass-the Band is a Cape Town, South Africa based band which includes a 'club' of band members spread around the world. The music started as a camp fire duo entertaining friends but through the tenacity and determination of front man and founder member, Glenn Buys, the band developed into a fully fledged gigging outfit. The band currently consists of three core members.
