Vinnies Art & Jazz Evening
with Maggie Gould as The Williamsburg Trio
Join us for an art night with a difference. For the first time ever, we are pleased to not only bring you our ever popular meet the artist night but also have our artist perform live here at Vinnies.

Photojournalist and jazz singer Maggie Gould is our newest Vinnies’ resident artist and brings to the restaurant a unique collection of photographs. These stunning portraits and captured moments tell insightful and far reaching stories about our lives and society. Maggie will take us behind her lens and share some rare insight into her world as an artist and photographer.

We are in for a double treat as she shares with us her other love; the art of music and in particular jazz. Maggie will perform a selection of her (and our) favourite tunes with Lance Su’a (guitar) and Miguel Fuentes (percussion) – as the Williamsburg Trio… and on our night will perform songs from some of the artists she has photographed such as Ray Charles, Nina Simone, BB King and Paul McCartney.

Maggie Gould is a photojournalist and a musician. Her musical genre ranges from Jazz and Latin through to Brazilian and Pop. Her influences include Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughan, Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and Bossa Nova style. With her music degree from Auckland University, Maggie continues learning through working with some of New Zealand’s finest musicians. These include Frank Gibson, Alberto Santarelli, Mike Walker, Miguel Fuentes and Lance Su’a.
Maggie has performed at the Tauranga Jazz Festival, the Samoa Jazz and Blues Festival and the Monterey Jazz Festival and in Las Vegas, Venice and London. Highlights include performing at BB Kings Club, Manhattan with the Nanny Assis Band as well as performing with luminaries such as Bruce Forman guitarist from California and most recently Jonathan Crayford.

Her photojournalism career began in Wellington with Peter Bush telling her which end of a rugby pitch to stand at to get the best All Blacks shot. Maggie went on to work in Hong Kong at the South China Morning Post covering Tiananmen Square and the fall of the Walled City.

Maggie has enjoyed a career where she has met and photographed some of the world’s most fascinating people including Dame Whina Cooper, Nelson Mandela, Audrey Hepburn, Paul and Linda McCartney… and many more.

Her work has sold all over the world, including to Te Papa Museum. With numerous exhibitions under her belt in Wellington, Sydney, London and Nelson she has been awarded a number of scholarships and awards over more than 25 years as a renowned Kiwi photojournalist.
