Event title: Michael Houstoun with the Rodger Fox Big Band ft. special guest Erna Ferry

Two of New Zealand’s best-loved musicians - classical pianist, Michael Houstoun, and foremost jazz trombonist and big band leader Rodger Fox – bring their acclaimed concert series to the South Island in October 2021.

Hear them perform brand new jazz adaptations of classic pieces by Gino Vannelli arranged by acclaimed composer Bill Cunliffe.

“Bill’s arrangements are pure pleasure. He is a jazz genius. He’s created something new with his arrangements without any betrayal of the original Vannelli inspiration”, says Houston.

And that’s not all. The Big Band will present material from their New York studio recording of New Zealand original compositions and special guest vocalist Erna Ferry will perform a unique version of Peggy Lees “I Love Being Here With You”, a stellar version of George Gershwin’s “Summertime” and a big band version of The Rolling Stones “Honky Tonk Women”.
