Wonderboom: Praying Mantis

New Video for Guns ‘n Roses Opening Act!

WONDERboom just released their brand new music video for their single Praying Mantis!

WONDERboom was formed in 1996 and consists of Cito, Martin Schofield and Wade Williams, founding members who have been writing songs and performing together for over 22 years, and Jonathan Bell, who joined them after the death of their friend and drummer, Garth McLeod, in 2013. The band took their name from a road sign pointing to a small town outside Kroonstad.

WONDERboom is undeniably one of South Africa’s greatest musical success stories, and their latest offerings – from Praying Mantis to The Best Side Story Tour – is set to continue to cement their place as local rock legends.
