Piet began writing songs and forming bands while still at school and his first professional gig was as an acoustic duo in 1974. In 1984 he founded the Blues Rock group Jack Hammer.
During the 1990s Jack Hammer opened for Deep Purple and Uriah Heep on their “Masters of Rock” tour and were also privileged to be the supporting act for ZZ Top on their South African tour.
Botha was one of the first musicians inducted into the SA Rock Hall Of Fame in January 2002. On the 6th May 2006 Piet Botha was awarded a South African Music Awards Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to South African music. He was also awarded a Prestige Award by the FAK in September 2006 for his contribution to the Afrikaans language.
Jack Hammer is the country’s longest-standing rock band, its existence spanning three decades with Piet Botha at their helm.
He plays not only because his fans love to see him, but as John Lee Hooker sang “it’s in him and it got to come out”.
