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.

30th August 2014
Critical Mass performed at Die Malle Mark on Saturday the 30th August. A food and crafts (and beverage) market near Paarl in the Western Cape. A good spring crowd enjoyed the music of CM plus other bands on the day.
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 line up changes regularly depending the presence of members in Cape Town.
