Westland Arts Incorporated & NZ Arts on Tour presents

Andrew London Trio

Thursday 19th October, 7.30pm

Old Lodge Theatre, Revell St

Subtle, subversive, satirical swing – Andrew London Trio tour – October 2017

 

 

Audiences loved Andrew London’s lyrics and laid-back singing along with ever so smoothie Nils Olsen’s sax and clarinet solos when they toured previously with Hot Club Sandwich.

 

 

 

Now in the Sandwich tradition they’re joined by Andrew’s wife Kirsten on bass to pronounce on the minutiae of middle class, middle aged, Middle Earth concerns, delivered in a deceptively innocuous 1940s swing style.

 

Over 20 years of touring has enabled songwriter London to gather material from the shearing sheds of Southland to the boardrooms of Auckland, leaving him free to pronounce on pretentious socialites, modern parenthood, male insecurities, the Internet, and much much more.

 

Expect intermittent forays into folk, blues, country and hip hop - plus poignancy and pathos from the Beatle-esque harmonies provided by Kirsten and Nils.

 

Tickets available from the Hokitika Regent Theatre or online

Magic Lightbox

 

Wednesday 8th November, 7.30pm 

 

 

Delaney Davidson, presents his all new show Magic Lightbox.  

 

Remember the slide show of the returned traveller? Remember the projected image on a sheet in the living room? Remember the live orchestra providing music to the movie you went to? 

 

 

See all three combined as Delaney uses an incredible blend of live music and film, paying homage to these lost ways of storytelling in his tent show carnival style revival.

 

 

Dusty highway tales, the old world of Europe, the new world of USA, a glimpse into a forgotten time. Relive the mystery of Switzerland, see New Zealand like you never saw it before, the deserts of California, fairground Brighton by the sea, the cold war Vienna, all roll into one in this irresistible work.

 

 

Fresh from the success of his last European jaunt, here he comes through your town, catch him before he disappears again to distant parts unknown.

 

Tickets available from the Regent Theatre or online
