November Club Night with RhodeWorks

Do not miss this night! It is going to be an outstanding evening of entertainment. First half we will have floor singers. There will be a special presentation for halftime supper from the folks currently making the next Matakana Cookbook. And in the second half, the phenomenal RhodeWorks bluegrass band from hamilton. These 3 brothers (with mum on bass!) have been on a meteoric rise every since appearing on the New Zealand folk scene a few years ago. Their skill on multiple instruments, their beautiful harmonies, and enchanting personalities will have you hanging on every note.

September club night with The Remarkables

September Club Night

The Remarkables are an acoustic bluegrass-country-jazz-swing band from Auckland. They’ve been featured guests at the Auckland Folk Festival, Hamsterfest, Wellyfest, and Canterbury Folk Festival, and have been guests at most folk clubs all up and down the North Island. September club night is Monday, the 25th. This is a $10 night. Doors open at 6:45 to sign up for a floor spot.

And just a reminder for first half performers to be respectful of other performers by keeping their two-song running time to 8 minutes or under. We want to have time for everyone to have a go, and an on time start for our second half guests.
