Something entertaining

June 28, 2011

Gig poster, shd b up all over town!

Some friends of mine, some of whom are greenies, and some of whom are Greenies, are in a little band called the Klezmer Rebs. These days they’re scattered all over the place, but they’ll be playing at the launch of a new compilation CD soon in Wellington. Thought I’d post this straight away so I don’t forget (my brain being a bit like that these days…).

So here’s the goods:

Friday 15 July 2011 @ 9pm
The Garden Club
13 Dixon Street, Wellington
Entry $15 or $20 including the CD

…The night will feature performances from:

Niko Ne Zna (Balkan Brass Band with special guest ‘The Gypsy Master’)
Sam Manzanza and the Afro-Beat Band
Klezmer Rebs (Jewish Klezmer band)
Los Jineteros (Live Reggaeton band)
Carlos Navae Trio (Salsa)
Zamba Bem (Brazilian Dance)
Navjeevan (Indian Bhangra drumming)
Frankie Fresh and DJOE
And more….

‘The Overseas Experiment’ proudly presents this compilation of locally produced music in traditional and contemporary ‘world music’ styles. This album features songs from Wellington-based musicians from a wide variety of ethnic and musical traditions. Proceeds from CD sales will go directly to the artists and a small portion will be used for an ongoing project to develop musical opportunities for refugee and recent migrant background youth in Wellington.

The Compilation CD will be officially released and available for sale at this event.

I admit to having lifted all of that text from the event page on FB, but then again I was specifically asked if I could give it a push, so there y’are, no copyright infringement there, officer!

Bored with a record shop.

Ever wondered what goes on when the proprietor of secondhand record shop at the butt end of the world chucks in the towel and goes back to having a life??
