Andrew Fagan and his band wrap up 2021 on a high note with a one-off concert in Mt Eden for the VillageMusic Series of soirées – performing songs from his solo and Mockers years.
This concert is the band’s first since their April North Island tour – with plans for shows further south curtailed by Auckland’s lockdown.
Fagan’s career spans over 40 years, from his time as frontman of punk group The Ambitious Vegetables, pop-rockers The Mockers, to his ongoing solo career.
His most recent musical vehicle - Fagan and The People – dynamically presents laconic social commentary classics such as Exciting, Astonishment, Now You Know, Get Light, Jerusalem, and On Channel Me – plus a healthy dose of Mockers' pop sensibility.
Fagan & The People’s 2020 album Act Normal was the catalyst for Fagan & The People to tour, with the band comprising Darryn Harkness (New Telepathics, Loud Ghost), Kurt Shanks (stellar*), Joe Dekkers- Reihanna, and John Murray.
“This New Zealand Pop King appears on stage with a theatrical presence. A glitter costume with a silver crown … Andrew Fagan and the People proceed to let go and rage from the starters gun. Great Power Pop, inventive and hook-laden.” Rev Orange Peel, 13th Floor review from April 9, 2021, Wine Cellar concert.
This concert will be held for Vaccine Passport holders only and we will be scanning at the door, in keeping with our hosting responsibilities to current Covid guidelines and restrictions.
And don't forget - it's a BYO event!
