Jared Smith has been active in the Dunedin music community since 2006. He has played in various bands of a few different genres. As a member of Soulseller, Ash & the Matadors and Tahu and the Takahes, Smith had toured NZ and Australia.
He has been working on some new instrumental music inspired by John Martyn, Nick Drake and Paul Ubana Jones. Tonight he is going to share some of the new music he has been working on which he hopes to record and release in the new year.
As Covid travels down the country and gets closer to us, the committee has been deciding how best to keep our members safe while at the same time continuing to operate. We are aware that we have people in our community who have compromised health and we want to give people opportunities to perform as well as enjoying those performances. Therefore we have studied the government's traffic light system and decided that the best way we can do this is to require all attendees and performers to be double vaccinated. Masks are required when you are up and moving - you can remove them when seated.
We understand and respect that everyone has the right to make their own choices and are aware some members of our community may have preferences that do not align with these requirements. However, we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all attendees and this is our highest priority.
