SERVANT JAZZ QUARTERS :: HOLLY ARROWSMITH :: 10/05/20

For our first show of the year, we’re proud to present the debut London appearance by Holly Arrowsmith

Raised in the mountains of southern New Zealand, Holly is a strong forerunner in NZ’s current folk revivalist movement. With sound comparisons drawn to Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake, she delves into the earnest matters of life wrapped in metaphors of nature and the soothing landscapes that raised her.

Known not only for her exquisite songwriting but also her sense of humour and authentic stage presence, Holly has has released two critically acclaimed records and supported the likes of Sixto Rodriguez, Patty Griffin, Willie Watson, Nadia Reid and Tiny Ruins. In 2016 she received the TUI "Folk Album Of The Year" and was recently awarded the APRA "Country Song of the Year" for her powerful track ‘Slow Train Creek’, penned in the Rockies of Colorado.

THE GRAND :: JORDAN LUCK BAND :: 03/10/19

“Legend” is a word suffering from chronic overuse syndrome these days, but when it comes to Jordan Luck, the word regains it”s full meaning and one the NZ public associates with this true blue Kiwi icon. This affection is obviously felt amongst his musical peers as well – they bestowed Jordan the honour of inaugural Inductee into the New Zealand Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame and in 2015 The NZ Music Legacy Award.

As front man and pop-writing genius with the legendary Exponents, he clocked up a staggering 18 Top 40 singles over the years, with “Victoria” recently voted by the public as the 8th greatest New Zealand song of all time. These days on any given weekend you will hear packed stadiums of sports fans singing in unison (if not in-tune) “Why Does Love Do This To Me?” a song that seems to have taken on the mantle as the “unofficial” alternative NZ national anthem.

The Jordan Luck Band is the new super deluxe Frankenstein incarnation backing the iconic kiwi singer these days. Every gig, the band play the best of all those iconic Exponents tracks we know and love as well as a collection of the bands favourite Kiwi classics. Meticulously designed by Jordan himself from the ground up, this band has just the one purpose…to bring Jordan”s blend of pop rock genius from the past, present and future… back to the masses!

Hand-picked from a wish-list of players Jordan wanted to work with, the word went out, his fantasy starting line up were contacted and unsurprisingly they all signed up…so, starting from the stage right part of the paddock: Bryan Bell – ex-frontman of the much loved Dead Flowers, Beaver – rocknroll royalty and drummer of the world famous D4, Rich Mixture – God of all things musical, formerly graced the stages of D4, Dead Flowers and many more, Joe Walsh – frontman of Auckland rocker’s Ekko Park.

Support on the night comes from Barker, the solo project of Johnny Barker, perhaps best known for his acting role as The Ferndale Strangler in Shortland Street. You can check out tracks from his last record on YouTube.

O2 FORUM :: SHAPESHIFTER + TIKI TAANE :: 18/10/19

After selling out shows across New Zealand and Australia this summer, Shapeshifter NZ return to London for one special night.

Showcasing new tunes from their forthcoming LP alongside bonafide classics, this is your one chance to catch the stadium electronic wonderkids before they head back into the studio. With new collaborations recorded with the Upbeats in 2019, their own new material and another LP with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra on the way, Shapeshifter NZ remain one of the most diverse acts in dance music.

A unique combination of future soul, drum and bass, jazz, rock, dub and more, with euphoric synths and heavy guitars amidst pounding drums and soaring vocals – this is Shapeshifter NZ.

Support on the night comes from the mighty Tiki Taane. A multi-platinum award winning artist and pioneer in the New Zealand music scene with a career spanning 20 years, Tiki rose to prominence as a member of Salmonella Dub, penning some of their biggest hits including “Love Your Ways” and “For the Love of It” amongst others.

Since embarking on his solo artist career in 2007, Tiki has gone from strength to strength and is now one of New Zealand”s most popular and diverse award-winning artists, with his song “Always on My Mind” becoming one of the most successful singles of all time in New Zealand. He is renowned as much for his powerful live performances as he is for his anthems, both for his dynamic solo shows and as an MC for acts such as Concord Dawn, The Upbeats and Optimus Gryme.

Over 80% of the tickets have sold for this show already, so get in before they sell out.

SEBRIGHT ARMS :: PITCH BLACK :: 07/11/19

Pitch Black enjoyed last October’s intimate (and sold out) show at the Sebright Arms so much that they’ve decided to come back and do it again …. twice!

Having pumped their way through New Zealand”s electronic music scene since their inaugural performance at the annual Gathering New Year’s eve festival in 1996, Pitch Black have spent the subsequent years rousing dance floor punters, generating rave reviews, winning awards and gaining thousands of fans across the world.

Hard to box into a single audio ‘genre’, Pitch Black is a combination of musical journeys. Their sound is distinctive; ranging from organic ambient beginnings and layered soundscapes to skanking keyboards, cutting acid riffs and thumping rhythmic grooves, with dub being the glue that holds their sound together. One critic has described them as like “Orbital meets King Tubby, or Rhythm and Sound in Technicolor”.

It is their live show that really makes Pitch Black stand out from the rest of the crowd, both sonically and visually. Their tracks take on an added dynamism and their performances reveal the dialectic behind the band – Paddy wants to do it for the crowd, Michael wants to do it to the crowd. Visually they are in another dimension thanks to Michael’s cutting edge visuals.

They have toured the world relentlessly, playing everywhere from Amsterdam to Zagreb and the streets of Las Vegas to the Australian outback, supporting acts such as Coldcut, Skream, Easy Dub All Stars and System 7 along the way.

Their new album “Third Light” came out on September 13th and the video for the first single up on YouTube here.

Support on the night comes from South London’s Robot Riddims.

ELECTRIC BALLROOM :: THE BLACK SEEDS :: 15/08/19

They’re back ….. One of New Zealand”s most-loved live acts, The Black Seeds, have spent the last two decades taking the world by storm. Back home, they are revered stalwarts of the touring and festival circuit, while abroad they”ve remained at the forefront of New Zealand”s internationally renowned roots movement, alongside the likes of Fat Freddy”s Drop and Katchafire.

Described by Clash Magazine as “one of the best live reggae acts on the planet,” the band”s eight-piece live show infuses raw energy and good vibes wherever they go. With countless sold out tours behind them and performances at many of the world”s leading festivals, The Black Seeds live set delivers a soul party on time, every time.

With a stash of albums and hits to their name, including “Dust and Dirt”, “So True”, “Cool Me Down”, and “One-By-One”, which became an international hit when it featured in an episode of the award-winning TV series “Breaking Bad”, The Black Seeds have clocked up multi-platinum sales and streams. While firmly based in the island grooves that inspired the birth of the band in 1998, The Black Seed”s sound casts a wide net, laying funk, soul, Afrobeat and other eclectic elements over their dub/reggae foundation.

ST PANCRAS OLD CHURCH :: FRANK BURKITT + KARA FILBEY :: 25/07/19

Tui award winning artists Frank Burkitt and Kara Filbey are coming to the beautiful St Pancras Old Church later this month for an intimate performance of some of the finest songwriting and harmony you are likely to hear.

Winners of the Vodafone NZ Music Award for Best Folk Artist 2019 (for their Frank Burkitt Band release “Raconteur”), Frank Burkitt and Kara Filbey have been performing together for the past 15 years throughout the UK, New Zealand, Australia and North America. Residents of Wellington for the last 5 years, they are delighted to be bringing their New Zealand inspired music to London.

Two voices that have had 15 years to blend, they will both captivate and enchant. Expect a broad set of original and traditional Scottish folk songs, country ballads and Americana. Burkitts highly intelligent songwriting is what sets him apart, as well as his ability to tell great stories to accompany his songs.

Support on the night comes from Chanteuse Rosé and Greg Wain, both perhaps better known for their Exposing Edith show.

ST PANCRAS OLD CHURCH :: MODERN MAORI QUARTET :: 26/07/19

There are two sides to every story. And every story has a song.

Aotearoas favourite showband Modern Māori Quartet (MMQ) returns to London this July with a ONE NIGHT ONLY performance of their music theatre work that was five years in the making.

Two Worlds – an original Māori play with songs – brings about a timely return to MMQs theatrical beginnings with a story full of heart and revelation. With signature style and humour Two Worlds weaves together four stories that unfold the fabric of Māori musical culture and its genealogy and evolution.

Layering an earnest and uniquely Kiwi narrative to their soaring harmonies and classic quirky charm, the award-winning MMQ invite you to meet Koro, Big Bro, Uncle and Bub, and experience their take on what it really means to be Māori in this day and age.

“Out of everything Ive seen so far I would recommend The Modern Maori Quartet: Two Worlds. Great singing, dancing and humour in a clever dramatic framework, and four lovely actor/musicians.” Julia Donaldson (The Gruffalo), as interviewed in The Scotsman

Support for the night will come from London’s own expat superstar Jayson Norris

ELECTRIC BALLROOM :: THE BLACK SEEDS :: 15/08/19

They’re back ….. One of New Zealands most-loved live acts, The Black Seeds, have spent the last two decades taking the world by storm. Back home, they are revered stalwarts of the touring and festival circuit, while abroad theyve remained at the forefront of New Zealands internationally renowned roots movement, alongside the likes of Fat Freddys Drop and Katchafire.

Described by Clash Magazine as “one of the best live reggae acts on the planet,” the bands eight-piece live show infuses raw energy and good vibes wherever they go. With countless sold out tours behind them and performances at many of the worlds leading festivals, The Black Seeds live set delivers a soul party on time, every time.

With a stash of albums and hits to their name, including Dust and Dirt, So True, Cool Me Down, and One-By-One, which became an international hit when it featured in an episode of the award-winning TV series Breaking Bad, The Black Seeds have clocked up multi-platinum sales and streams. While firmly based in the island grooves that inspired the birth of the band in 1998, The Black Seeds sound casts a wide net, laying funk, soul, Afrobeat and other eclectic elements over their dub/reggae foundation.

Supporting the Seeds on their first show in London for over 5 years will be the mighty Hempolics – check out their awesome “Me Love to Sing

THE GRAND :: JORDAN LUCK BAND :: 03/10/19

Legend is a word suffering from chronic overuse syndrome these days, but when it comes to Jordan Luck, the word regains its full meaning and one the NZ public associates with this true blue Kiwi icon. This affection is obviously felt amongst his musical peers as well – they bestowed Jordan the honour of inaugural Inductee into the New Zealand Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame and in 2015 The NZ Music Legacy Award.

As front man and pop-writing genius with the legendary Exponents, he clocked up a staggering 18 Top 40 singles over the years, with Victoria recently voted by the public as the 8th greatest New Zealand song of all time. These days on any given weekend you will hear packed stadiums of sports fans singing in unison (if not in-tune) Why Does Love Do This To Me? a song that seems to have taken on the mantle as the unofficial alternative NZ national anthem.

The Jordan Luck Band is the new super deluxe Frankenstein incarnation backing the iconic kiwi singer these days. Every gig, the band play the best of all those iconic Exponents tracks we know and love as well as a collection of the bands favourite Kiwi classics. Meticulously designed by Jordan himself from the ground up, this band has just the one purpose…to bring Jordans blend of pop rock genius from the past, present and future… back to the masses!

Hand-picked from a wish-list of players Jordan wanted to work with, the word went out, his fantasy starting line up were contacted and unsurprisingly they all signed up…so, starting from the stage right part of the paddock: Bryan Bell – ex-frontman of the much loved Dead Flowers, Beaver – rocknroll royalty and drummer of the world famous D4, Rich Mixture – God of all things musical, formerly graced the stages of D4, Dead Flowers and many more, Joe Walsh – frontman of Auckland rocker’s Ekko Park.

With a stash of albums and hits to their name, including ‘Dust and Dirt’, ‘So True’, ‘Cool Me Down’, and ‘One-By-One’, which became an international hit when it featured in an episode of the award-winning TV series ‘Breaking Bad’, The Black Seeds have clocked up multi-platinum sales and streams. While firmly based in the island grooves that inspired the birth of the band in 1998, The Black Seed’s sound casts a wide net, laying funk, soul, Afrobeat and other eclectic elements over their dub/reggae foundation.

Having released their sixth studio album FABRIC in 2017 to critical acclaim, the band will return to Europe this summer for the first time in 5 years on the back of a new single.

Early Bird tickets have all sold out already.

THE GRAND :: JORDAN LUCK BAND :: 03/10/19

Legend’ is a word suffering from chronic overuse syndrome these days, but when it comes to Jordan Luck, the word regains it’s full meaning and one the NZ public associates with this true blue Kiwi icon. This affection is obviously felt amongst his musical peers as well – they bestowed Jordan the honour of inaugural Inductee into the New Zealand Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame and in 2015 The NZ Music Legacy Award.

As front man and pop-writing genius with the legendary Exponents, he clocked up a staggering 18 Top 40 singles over the years, with ‘Victoria’ recently voted by the public as the 8th greatest New Zealand song of all time. These days on any given weekend you will hear packed stadiums of sports fans singing in unison (if not in-tune) ‘Why Does Love Do This To Me?’ a song that seems to have taken on the mantle as the ‘unofficial’ alternative NZ national anthem.

The Jordan Luck Band is the new super deluxe Frankenstein incarnation backing the iconic kiwi singer these days. Every gig, the band play the best of all those iconic Exponents tracks we know and love as well as a collection of the bands favourite Kiwi classics. Meticulously designed by Jordan himself from the ground up, this band has just the one purpose…to bring Jordan’s blend of pop rock genius from the past, present and future… back to the masses!

Hand-picked from a wish-list of players Jordan wanted to work with, the word went out, his fantasy starting line up were contacted and unsurprisingly they all signed up…so, starting from the stage right part of the paddock: Bryan Bell – ex-frontman of the much loved Dead Flowers, Beaver – rocknroll royalty and drummer of the world famous D4, Rich Mixture – God of all things musical, formerly graced the stages of D4, Dead Flowers and many more, Joe Walsh – frontman of Auckland rocker’s Ekko Park.

ST PANCRAS OLD CHURCH :: MODERN MAORI QUARTET :: 26/07/19

There are two sides to every story. And every story has a song.

Aotearoa’;s favourite showband Modern Māori Quartet (MMQ) returns to London this July with a ONE NIGHT ONLY performance of their music theatre work that was five years in the making.

Two Worlds is an original Māori play with songs and brings about a timely return to MMQ’;s theatrical beginnings with a story full of heart and revelation. With signature style and humour Two Worlds weaves together four stories that unfold the fabric of Māori musical culture and its genealogy and evolution.

Layering an earnest and uniquely Kiwi narrative to their soaring harmonies and classic quirky charm, the award-winning MMQ invite you to meet Koro, Big Bro, Uncle and Bub, and experience their take on what it really means to be Māori in this day and age.

“Out of everything I’;ve seen so far I would recommend The Modern Maori Quartet: Two Worlds. Great singing, dancing and humour in a clever dramatic framework, and four lovely actor/musicians.” Julia Donaldson (The Gruffalo), as interviewed in The Scotsman
