In 1980 Butch Brocco formed the band with Patric Van Blerk’s guidance called “BUTCH”. He
released a self composed single called “Café Casablanca” about a coffee bar in Rocky Street,
Johannesburg. The song received extensive airplay and was regarded as a “radio hit” because it was played three times a day for 11 weeks on Radio 702 (a music station at the time). “BUTCH” was nominated for the Sarie Awards in the same year. The band was popular on the club circuit after which the members of the band pursued their own interests.

In 2000, Butch Brocco formed a record label called “Ridge Music” to release a CD of self composed songs for a kids group (the “Sugar Kids”). He managed them together with Jenny Ramie. The CD was sold at various gigs where they performed.
The “Sugar Kids” enjoyed success by performing at shopping centres and had the privilege to perform at Nelson Mandela’s Children Day at Zoo Lake. The group was together for four years and then disbanded and Ridge Music was put on hold.
In 2009, Ridge Music CC was reformed and a studio was built and equipped at 42 Hannaben Street, Linksfield Ridge by Butch Brocco. At the same time he was introduced
to “Peyton Amber” where she was performing at a restaurant in Boksburg. Butch and Peyton collaborated to do their first CD “PATENT”. This took a year and a half to record as Peyton is still at school and Butch has a construction company.
Butch has now taken over managing Peyton’s career through Ride Music.
After a lot of hard work and dedication Peyton and Butch are proud of the final result andhope to get the deserved support by all in the Industry and the public.
