Beyondsemble

Stop press - Beyondsemble have won the band competition to play in Womad in March 2013 out of 72 bands!

“Nothing short of pyrotechnic display of dazzling virtuosity by four highly imaginative and gifted musicians.”

"These four talented musicians have the skill to make music of the highest quality look easy. They play together with complete trust...This concert was exhilarating and seemingly faultless”

With responses like this to the well over 200 gigs, Beyondsemble have played since launching in New Zealand in 2009. It is no surprise the band has shot into the limelight on the local festival scene and is getting a lot of attention offshore.

An eclectic and diverse mix of tunes and songs both original and sourced from around the globe executed with virtuosic skill, innovation, creativity, infectious energy, a sense of adventure and an exuberance of spirit. Music to move you and make you move.

Beyondsemble has performed in all manner of venues from intimate cabaret settings and small theatres to large outdoor festival stages. In 2010 they played to over 30,000 people over 2 weeks as the official pre-show band for the prestigious World of WearableArt Awards held in Wellington at the TSB Arena.

Beyondsemble is a hard-working band and has toured New Zealand every year since its inception in 2009. The 2011 tour saw the band do 25 gigs in 31 days, travelled some 6714 km. This year they are touring Europe as a trio in June/July as well as the New Zealand in November as a four piece.

Their debut album “Beyondsemble” came out in September 2011 and has had great reviews.

The band members are:
Craig Denham - accordion, piano, whistles and vocals;
Jon Sanders - guitar, bouzuki, ukelele, vocals;
Chris Koole - cajon, percussion, lead vocals;
John Ellis - bass clarinet, saxophone, percussion and keys.

The album features a number of other musicians who can be included on bigger festival gigs when appropriate.
