Sorry this event has been and gone

The Kings Arms Tavern, , Auckland

Dr Tree, the extra-terrestrial mind-blower in the award winning play "An Awful Silence" would be no match for these musical wizards.

Formed in 1974, with Frank Gibson Jnr- drums; Murray McNabb-keyboards; Martin Winch-guitar; Kim Patterson-Trumpet; and the late Johnny Banks- percussion. From the days of hippy madness, long hair and platform shoes.

The first fusion band in New Zealand, critics have groped to describe it: rock-jazz fusion, afro-rock, afro-jazz- a mind blowing musical experience. Managed by Charlie Grey and Colin Moore in the 70's, this critically acclaimed group played wherever they could; on The Grunt machine, radio, TV, festivals and were known for intense adrenalin inspired performances and standing room only, with a line going down to Queen St at the Old Globe Hotel from 1976 until April 1977 when drummer Frank Gibson left for London.

Well they're back and they’re returning to the stage!They will play 2 Sets - First set 5pm
Tickets From Ticketek & Real Groovy

Critics said:
The best jazz last night came in the form of Dr Tree. Here was raw but vital jazz. The ability of the musicians was dazzling. - B.O.P. Times

As good as any similar group in Europe. - Jan Byrezek Editor in Chief of the European Jazz Magazine Forum
