We’re celebrating New Zealand’s and Wellington’s music this May with an exciting lineup of local musicians!
On Sunday 17 May, from 2pm to 3:30pm, Dirty Mike and the Boiz return the the Wellington Music scene in their first show of 2015.
Their diverse blend of jazz mixes influences from jazz greats such as Ornette Coleman to Elliot Smith, combining into a unique sound that will leave you hungry for more.
Next up, we have May’s Third Thursday event on Thursday 21 May with a songwriter’s circle to celebrate New Zealand Music Month. Featuring three young Wellington Musicians, each musician will share their music and talk about their processes, style and work, and culminating with some spontaneous musical collaboration.
And on Sunday 24 May 2pm to 3:30pm Myele Manzanza, Scott Maynard and Dan Hayles come to the Test Studio to perform "All Jazzed Up” - an especially devised set for New Zealand Music Month.
In All Jazzed Up, the talented trio delve into New Zealand’s musical repertoire to rework some of their favourite New Zealand music in their own jazz style.
