Restrictions:

Subtle and occasionally subversive satirical songs about the trivia and minutiae of daily life from the point of view of a middle-aged, middle-class, Middle Earther, delivered in a deceptively innocuous 1940s swing style with occasional forays into folk, blues, country and hip-hop.

This trio carries on in the tradition of Hot Club Sandwich, who have toured extensively throughout New Zealand since the early 1990s, enabling singer/songwriter Andrew London to gather material from the shearing sheds of Southland to the corporate boardrooms of Queen Street. Themes cover the gamut from pretentious socialites, male insecurity and modern parenthood to driving habits, rugby culture and the depredations of ageing.

The obvious opportunity for humour in these themes is eagerly seized upon and exploited mercilessly, but occasional poignancy and pathos are never far away. Beatle-esque vocal harmonies are added by Kirsten London on bass and ex-HCS sax/clarinettist Nils Olsen. Will appeal to an audience who like Folk, jazz, comedy audiences, fans of satire and musical comedy.

There will be no charge for tickets prior to the event. Instead, guests are encouraged to pay what they think the performance was worth to them after the concert has finished.

This is an initiative from ATEC to provide the community the opportunity to experience a live performance in our venue at a price they believe is “value for money”.

All of our Open Hat Nights will have high-quality professional musicians or performers who are currently touring the country under the umbrella of Arts on Tour NZ. Gather some friends, family or neighbours... Try something new, give it a go!
