The Andrew London Trio -

Many of you will know of or will have seen Hot Club Sandwich, for many years the country's premier swing trio, noted not only for their fantastic musicianship but also a slew of humorous songs skewering the pretensions of middle-class New Zealand.

Now band leader, singer and songwriter Andrew London returns to Tauranga with his new band, the Andrew London Trio, featuring ex-Hot Club Sandwich woodwind exponent Nils Olsen on jazz-influenced saxophone, clarinet and flute and bass from Kirsten London.

If you haven't yet been exposed to the band then the song titles say it all: 'Let's Talk About Me', 'I Hugged My Mate', 'Country's Buggered', 'I Think I'll Buy a Yacht'. Andrew's whimsical songs reflect the national psyche with gentle irreverence, and playfully lampoon many of New Zealand society's obsessions and taboos. Reviewers have made comparisons to Fred Dagg, Flanders and Swann and even Noel Coward.

Kokomo (unplugged) -

Tauranga favourites, Kokomo (originally “Kokomo Blues”) have been together now for 25 years, and are renowned for dynamic live shows and widely acclaimed songwriting. The band has toured extensively throughout New Zealand, performing at the country’s major rock, blues, jazz and folk festivals.

The band has also released ten albums and a live concert DVD. Two are collections of traditional blues while others feature the band’s own songs. In 2016 Kokomo released a 2-CD boxed set, Batten Down the Hatches, to celebrate 25 years of making music, and launched it at a sold-out concert at Tauranga's Baycourt Theatre.

For this special show, Kokomo is very excited to be returning to the acoustic trio line-up of their early years, Derek Jacombs, Grant Bullot and Nigel Masters delivering gutsy blues and their own songs with acoustic guitar, blues harp and upright bass.
