The Alpaca Social Club hits the NZ tour trail again this summer with fresh sounds from exotic lands with a taste of Arabic, Celtic, funk soul and gypsy jazz cultures.
The two musicians at its core are piano/accordionist Craig Denham and bassouki/guitarist Jon Sanders. They gained notoriety in the NZ music scene through touring in diverse locations - from festivals like WOMAD to Stewart Island (south of New Zealand’s South Island).
Fans describe their live show as “a pyrotechnic display of dazzling virtuosity” and “a quantum leaping musical curiosity”, playing with skill, humour, passion and adventure.
The Club’s debut album was released in 2017 and sold out on the first tour, so work has begun on a follow up tome. Through a creative fusion of their instruments, they create sonic landscapes that belie the size of the band!
Doors open 7pm. Performance starts at 7.30pm. You will get a seat if you arrive close to 7pm.
Plenty of well-lit off-street parking.
Door sales cash only: Tea, coffee, biscuits and cake available during the break, also bar facilities for cold refreshments throughout the night, Eftpos available for bar purchases only, no cash-out facility.
