Caitlin Smith Trio 21st October 2017

The Caitlin Smith have been making musical magic together for well over a decade. Kevin Field (Fender Rhodes) and Olivier Holland (Upright bass) are the connoisseur’s choice of musicians. They redefine the genre as deep, expressive and spiritual. Smith calls herself a story-singer and song-poet. They incorporate Smith originals with beautiful interpretations of everything from Cohen to Elvis Costello, Sia,Tim Buckley and Gil Scott-Heron to rare jazz standards. Do not miss this wonderful opportunity to experience this mighty triumvirate Live.

Maria O’Flaherty Trio 22nd October 2017

This trio blends jazz standards with their own contemporary groove, Latin influences and rhythmic folk. Featuring the silky smooth vocals of Maria O’Flaherty, pianist virtuoso Ben Fernandez with strong rhythmic grooves from bassist David Hodkinson.

These musicians are some of Auckland’s most respected and experienced
Jazz musicians. They’ve built a fine reputation for delivering top-class performances, performing at Jazz festivals, vineyards and events around New Zealand.
