We are launching NZ Music music month with a bang!
One of our all time favourites have agreed to come and party with us for one night only.
Support from Sneeky and Chopper Reed.
The Nudge have been forming their genre crossing sound since 2010. Formed initially from Ryan Prebble wishing to expand what was originally a solo project. Elements of blues were naturally there, however with the addition of Coyle and Whakamoe, The Nudge has come to find their sound far more psychedelic and hypnotic. What establishes these guys as unique is their ability to fill the sonic's of the music, both layered and texturally, to be a crucial part of their song writing. Often tribal in rhythm, the element of a party and dance vibe is never far away from the heart of the songs. This heart of the Nudge is best described in their debut album “Big Nudge Pie” released in 2011.
The Nudge, is increasingly exploring the cinematic & performance side of its music, with an element of orchestration and exploration which will feature in their second full length album due for release in 2016.
Although busy performing all over New Zealand, 2015 has also been a busy year internationally, The Nudge travelled to Europe as part of NZ composer John Psathas No Man’s Land project commemorating World War 1. The Band then followed up with a tour of Holland and France. The year was finished off with a NYE performance at the Azul Beach Club and scenic resort of Bali Mandira in Legian, Bali.
The Nudge are a fresh form of innovative blues and roots.
