A double-header with two iconic Wellington jazz bands
Enjoy a relaxed Sunday afternoon of jazz at the Kelburn Village Pub with these two iconic jazz bands.
Named after the striking features on Wellington’s rugged southern coastline, Wellington Heads have been playing in and around the capital city for more than 10 years. They have evolved their own sound through the influences of Kansas and New Orleans–style blue jazz, the swinging rhythm ’n’ blues of Louis Jordan and Ray Charles, and infused with Pacific/Hawaiian rhythms and Latino feels. Their songs take a wry view of life with a distinctive Wellington flavour.
The Wellington Heads will be joined by Trad Stompers, a collection of Wellington Trad musicians playing piedmont, swing, blues and dixie –always a different exciting line up!
