Adam Page & Riki Gooch presents:
Band of Thousands;
DJ set by Eru Dangerspiel and DJ Vu.

Two rad dudes + heaps of instruments = mid-winter musical magic!

Following hugely successful gigs this year at WOMAD and The National Jazz Festival, Band of Thousands will descend on the windy city of Wellington for the first time.

Born from a love of making music together, Band of Thousands sees Australian multi-instrumentalist Adam Page and local stalwart of the drums Riki Gooch stretching the boundaries of what is possible with only 2 people on stage.

With a healthy amount of instruments and electronic equipment with pretty flashing lights, the duo create a hypnotic and powerfully rhythmic aural palate drawing on influences from artists as diverse as Steve Reich, Martin Dosh, Sun Ra and The Meters with nods to the futuristic beat movement.

Apart from performing with Band of Thousands, Riki Gooch is currently playing drums with Lord Echo and Fabulous/Arabia, while also producing for artists such as Ria Hall and Hollie Smith. Riki also leads the sometimes 40 member strong supergroup Eru Dangerspiel. Riki is looking forward to this gig as much as he looks forward to a nice hot bath after spending a day in the mines.

Adam Page has recently moved to Wellington from Australia to immerse himself in the rich musical talent NZ has to offer. Kiwi artists and bands Adam has worked, recorded and performed with so far include Electric Wire Hustle, The Richter City Rebels, The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra, Strike, John Psathas, Lisa Tomlins, The Troubles, Rhombus and, of course, Riki Gooch. Adam is looking forward to this gig as much as he looks forward to a nice hot bath after spending a day watching Riki work in the mines.
