One of New Zealand's most talented contemporary Jazz artists, Michal Martyniuk, brings his magic to present new material for the celebration of 13th birthday of PSC - his favourite Auckland venue.
Michal will be joined by his regular band: Ron Samsom on drums and Cameron McArthur on double bass. To complement the trio band has invited a special guest. This will be a night to remember.
