Batucada Sound Machine

Batucada Sound Machine with supporting act The Stevie Ray, Cream & Hendrix Experience. Enjoy this eclectic mix of genres over looking an amazing waterfront - psychedelic!

Batucada Sound Machine are a dynamic 10-piece group who have captivated audiences at festivals around the world with their breathtaking variety of tempos, timings, beats, styles and raw on-stage energy. The band’s three-piece samba/reggae percussion line-up and all star horn section intertwine Brazilian, funk, hip-hop, reggae, afro-beat and Pacific soul influences.

Batucada Sound Machine have amazed audiences at numerous well-respected events including Womad (UK/NZ), The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Afro Latino Festival, Wereldfeest, and Ollin Kan Festival. At home, they have performed at New Zealand’s biggest events: Splore, Parihaka, Rhythm & Vines, Big Day Out and many more, and they’re here to captivate and amaze Tauranga.

A brand new New Zealand based tribute show to 3 of the great power trio's, Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream (with Eric Clapton). The songs are performed with power and passion, the lineup comprising three well-known Hamilton musicians. Simon Koretz (guitar teacher, guitarist - 8Forty8) on guitar and lead vocals, Alan Grady (drum teacher, Knightshade) on the drums and back up vocals, and Derek Shaw (guitar teacher, Siren) on the bass and back up vocals. All three are well-seasoned, professional musicians with a common love for classic blues/rock.

This is a tribute show performed with pride and energy and captures the spirit of the music of Stevie, Jimi and Cream.

It’s the anniversary of Jimi so let’s celebrate his life with this great line up on The Strand Waterfront.
