New Zealand's number one country duo is playing at our modern and vibrant Club. $10 door entry.

The Restaurant is open for dinner from 5pm.

Cooper’s Run has shared the stage with Lady Antebellum, Glen Campbell & Kenny Rogers and are internationally acclaimed artists.

Made up of Ashley Cooper a New Zealand Idol finalist and Michael Tipping singer/songwriter, this couple makes up the hottest duo in the Southern Hemisphere.

They started performing in 2008 at clubs and private parties and were quickly named the winners of the Rising Star Award at the Variety Artist Club Annual Awards Show. They have been working non-stop in New Zealand, Australia and USA ever since.

Avid and skilled songwriters, these two also got the nod as New Zealand Country Music Song Writers of the Year.

Coopers Run were the very first Kiwi's to appear on the Country Music Association's Global Artist Party in Nashville Tennessee! The event was viewed by over 40 million people, and they were backed by legendary singer/songwriter Pam Tillis's band.

Upon arriving home from their United States trip, they were booked to open for Glen Campbell’s New
Zealand tour. In April 2011 Cooper’s Run was hand selected by management to support Grammy award
winning Nashville band Lady Antebellum for their first NZ show and in 2012 they took to the stage with
NZ icon John Rowles to support Kenny Rogers in his 2 sell out NZ shows.

Coopers Run has appeared on the Johnny High Country Music Revue, the springboard for such superstars
LeAnn Rimes, Steve Holy, Lee AnnWomack, Gary Morris, Linda Davis, Box Car Willie, and John Anderson.

In 2010 Coopers Run were crowned New Zealand Country Duo/Group of the year at the National Country Music awards.

Coopers Run completed a six month contract with Carnival Cruise Lines based in Florida and servicing
the Eastern and Western Caribbean, Mexico and Grand Bahamas’.

2013 saw another huge year for Cooper’s Run releasing their studio album “Unfinished” along with reclaiming
their title as NCMA Duo-Group of the year.

In 2014 Cooper's Run left their stamp on Georgia USA having completed their first international tour in
June. While in Georgia Cooper's Run recorded their new album Made in Georgia which is also the first CR
album to be 100% original music. Made in Georgia has so far produced a #1 hit single “Burn the
Moonlight” and the album itself has taken the top spot on the Itunes album charts and debuted at #9 on
the Official NZ top 20 Albums charts.
