HOMECOMING - Hammers and Horsehair

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 24, 7:30PM

In 1922 and 1923, Blenheim-born soprano Rosina Buckman made a triumphant homecoming tour of Aotearoa, bringing with her cellist Adelina Leon and pianist-composer Percy Kahn. Their farewell concert in London was to an audience of 10,000 in the Royal Albert Hall. Then between May 1922 and March 1923 they gave more than 110 performances across New Zealand and Australia. Kiwis couldn’t get enough of their own singing superstar!

A century later, Hammers & Horsehair duo Douglas Mews (piano) and Robert Ibell (cello) join forces with well-known Wellington soprano Rowena Simpson to reimagine Rosina’s homecoming in a lively concert interspersed with anecdotes from the 1922/23 tour. They will perform period classics from the tour, such as Puccini's 'One Fine Day', ‘Waiata Poi’ by Alfred Hill, Dvorak’s ‘Humoresque’ and Moskowski’s ‘Guitarre’, along with some of their own favourites.

Their current lineup consists of two trumpets, soprano saxophone, bass and tenor trombones, sousaphone, balkan bass drum (tapan) and snare drum, an exotic cocktail of instrumentation and musicianship that creates an atmosphere and vibe like no other. To top it off, their vocalist/percussionist Nikkie Rich sings in multiple languages, including Serbo-Croatian, Romani, Macedonian, Greek and English.

NZ Blues, Roots and Groove Festival 2022

The Unity Singers w/ special guests Jazzin' 3

THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 1, 7:30PM

Unity Singers from Palmerston North
Musical Director Mr. Stephen Fisher

The Unity Singers' purpose is to bring joy to people, member Nick Robinson says, and it is trying to be a ray of sunshine this winter.

The choir has faced significant challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic - members have caught the virus and at times it has been unable to practise. It has taken some human resilience to re-establish momentum after the restrictions, he says.

Members are thrilled to be back together and doing what they love to do. Musical people get a lot of stimulation from the sound of music, which gets to their core in ways some other things don't.

Musical director Stephen Fisher is keen to push the choir to expand its repertoire and this year it is doing a couple of jazz pieces, Robinson says. There will be songs from the 60s & 70s, some jazz and blues with a touch of Gospel.

Unity Singers welcomes new members, especially men. It is currently about one-third men and two-thirds women.

Special guests for this concert include the stunning jazz vocal group from Palmerston North Girls' High School, Jazzin' 3, tutored by Erna Ferry

Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 3, 8:30PM

Wellington based Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band are heading back to Palmerston North to let this blues train roll. Their most recent recording ‘This Train’, the title track of which speaks about acceptance of getting older, maintaining momentum and glorious celebration, and it seems timely in NZ to talk about momentum and celebrating when and where we can.

Laura, who is up front from the very start, with high energy, cheek and vocal strength leads and celebrates her band – and gives them licence to shine. And shine they do, with Wayne Mason, of course also known for being one of our much loved singer songwriters, here is master of boogie ‘burning it up’ on the keys and adding his iconic voice to the vocal mix. Think Fats Domino, think Dr John, think Professor Longhair and you’ll be in the right honky tonk.

John O’Connor will be ‘eating it up’ on lead guitar, never self-indulgent – just soulful and astonishing. He’s played with everyone along the way, from BB King to Kiri Te Kanawa.

The rhythm section brings a warm acoustic volume with George Barris on tasty upright bass and Peter Cogswell on the ‘back porch’ drums proving that you don’t need to be loud to groove.

The lads offer four part vocal harmony to Laura’s lead, combining often for a lush gospel blues sound.

Expect to hear a little Fats Domino, Bonnie Raitt, Nina Simone, John Lee Hooker, some of Laura’s own and others she can put her stamp on, all with their roots in the blues. Laura says "Blues comes straight from the heart and that’s just how I like it, it’s accessible, joyful, heart full music and not only that it makes me want to move – what’s not to like?”

This band are dynamic, masterful and all about entertainment. A combination of ‘old hands’ who have been making music a long time, absolutely revelling in the playing. A night out with Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band is a joyful celebration of why we would ‘keep the music live’ and let this blues train roll.

A runaway success in London’s West End, at successive Edinburgh Festivals, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and right across the USA, this is a hilarious send-up of classical music, which has established Australian pianist, David Scheel, as the successor to the legendary Victor Borge.

Beautiful music, and musical fun performed in so many accents/voices that David has also been compared to the late Robin Williams, and Peter Ustinov. Hear a familiar tune played in the styles of the old masters + an i-Pod; two famous pieces played simultaneously, one with the right hand, one with the left, plus his “translation” of the lyrics of Waltzing Matilda, already a comedy classic.

Two of NZ’s best standup comedians are hitting the road together for ‘The Paul Paul Comedy Night’ - a 2 hour showcase of world class comedy from easily the best Pauls in the business.

The shows feature “NZ’s Top Professional Comedian” PAUL EGO, a legend of stage and small screen. Ego has over 25 years comedy experience and is a much in-demand live performer. His rapid wit as an MC and feature act comic has seen him described as 'The Master of Improv'. He is also well known from his years on the hit TV comedy panel show ‘7DAYS’ and as the voice of one of NZ’s leading large yellow supermarkets.

Ego will be joined by “gifted and hilarious comedian” PAUL DOUGLAS. One of the busiest live comics in the country, Douglas was the winner of ‘Best Live Show’ and ‘Best Gag’ at the 2019 NZ Comedy Guild Awards. Put simply, as it was in one particular review, Paul is “just a dude with a microphone being incredibly funny” If you haven’t already caught him on ‘7DAYS’, ‘THE PROJECT’ or the ‘TVNZ BEST FOODS COMEDY GALA’ then this is your chance to catch Paul Douglas live.

‘The Paul Paul Comedy Night’ is a show where both Pauls are the feature act. Each night they’ll draw straws or sausages or whatever else is close by, to decide who goes first and who goes second. Regardless of the order, rest assured that Paul will definitely be the best act of the night.

‘THE PAUL PAUL COMEDY NIGHT’ featuring PAUL EGO and PAUL DOUGLAS - coming to a venue either near you, or near someone you know.

Book early to avoid disappointment & embarrassment.

The Flow Collective presents The Flow Album Tour

SATURDAY OCTOBER 1, 7:30PM

Flow: Beautrais x de Vegt is a unique literary show that celebrates the Whanganui River and the stories of its people. It is made up of sixteen original compositions by Elizabeth de Vegt using poems from Airini Beautrais’ collection Flow: Whanganui River Poems (VUP2017) as lyrical inspiration. The compositions celebrate Beautrais’ poems by exploring traditional and contemporary musical forms, including jazz, working songs, sea shanties, folk, country and pop. More importantly, this unique creative collaboration elevates the stories at its core ensuring they continue to be shared and remembered.

Flow features composer Elizabeth de Vegt (vocals, piano, guitar) with accompanists Andrew Wetherall (guitar), Hamish Jellyman (bass and backing vocals), Brad McMillan (Drums) and Elise Goodge (taonga puoro and backing vocals).

"This is a gorgeous album, timeless in its approach, and beautiful in all facets."

Plus1 presents Mel Parsons - Slow Burn Album Release Tour

SATURDAY OCTOBER 8, 8:00PM

One of Aotearoa’s favourite touring acts, award-winning indie-folk artist Mel Parsons announces the release of her new album SLOW BURN for September 16, as well as revealing an 11-date national tour to follow in support of the album release.

Parsons hits the road in October, and says

“It’s been a long couple of years for everyone so we’re absolutely fizzing to finally be getting back on stage sharing music with audiences again… I’m so excited about this new record and bringing it to life with the band.”

Following the release of SLOW BURN, Parsons’ national tour will take in Napier (October 7), Palmerston North (October 8), Tauranga (October 13), Hamilton (October 14), Auckland (October 15), Wellington (October 16), Christchurch (October 29), Kerikeri (November 18), Nelson (November 24), New Plymouth (November 25) and Dunedin (November 26).

Written at Parsons’ home in Lyttelton, the record was produced at LOHO in Ōtautahi by multi-instrumentalist Josh Logan. Parsons’ is joined by her long-time band on the album with cousin Jed Parsons on drums and backing vocals, Aaron Stewart on bass, and Logan playing guitars, piano and backing vocals.

Featuring the already released moody and nostalgic single
'Carry On'; the dark and intense track 'Already Gone'; and most recently, the mellow and meandering single 'Slow Burn', the album is to be one of grit and grace, with Parsons’ dusky vocals consuming the eleven new tracks.

Daniel Champagne

THURSDAY DECEMBER 1, 7:30PM

The young Australian virtuso, recently described as 'the finest guitar player of this generation', brings his tour back to New Zealand.

One reviewer recently wrote "Daniel Champagne exudes a natural ease on stage, as he sings poignant lyrics and beautifully crafted melodies that invariably whisk the heart up with grand romanticism. Coupled with an exhilarating guitar talent that transcends mere acoustic playing to replicate a whole band, Champagne is just magical".

The story goes that the young singer-songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he left school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.

The following decade has seen him release 5 studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe with upwards of 300 shows per year, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Daniel is now regarded as a leading light in acoustic music, with a firm reputation for sropping jaws, making crowds buzz and breaking guitars wherever he goes!

"reinventing roots guitar' Rhythms Magazine, AUSTRALIA
"Watching Daniel Champagne perform is a once in a lifetime experience. He is a true prodigy that plays like no one else could possibly play unless they spent at least two lifelines studying the art." BW Review, NEW ZEALAND

James Brodie: BECOMING BRODIE Tour 2023

THURSDAY MARCH 2, 7:30PM

We are pleased to announce that Ivy Blue front man James Brodie will be hitting the road for the first time since 2019 on his first ever solo theatre tour.

The Becoming Brodie Tour will kick off in Palmerston North in August before making its way to select cities in New Zealand and Australia through to early November, performing stripped down versions of his back-catalog with Ivy Blue and renditions of his new material taken off his debut solo album Becoming (out June 24th) while sharing stories about growing up with Autism and ADHD in a new theatrical production. As you might have guessed, these shows will primarily be taking place in small to mid sized theatres instead of the more intimate venues James has performed at in recent years with Ivy Blue, bringing James back to his theatrical roots formed as a member of the ACTA acting group at the Future Te Aroha Centre where James's performing career (and these stories) began over 20 years ago.
