Presenting The Basin Big City Band

The Basin City Big Band is an 18 piece orchestra playing hits from the 40s’ 50s’ 60s’ and beyond. This includes timeless tunes from Glen Miller and Ella Fitzgerald along with other big band music from those times, through to modern songs from artists such as Robbie Williams and Michael Buble.

The band will swing the rhythms for all the different dance styles. There will be three vocalists entertaining you with the songs you will love. You may want to just listen… or you can get up and dance!

The vocalists are: Chris Townshend, Tanya Maich and Allison Rangi.

Chris Townshend – combines his powerful vocals and theatrical experience to give you a night of music that will keep you on your feet. A soloist for Whangarei’s Opera North, he has been vocally trained by the legendary Joan Kennaway.

You may have seen him on stage as the lead male in Whangarei’s Mamma Mia and Miss Saigon. Be ready for a vast repertoire from artists including Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Michael Buble, Robbie Williams, Dean Martin, Tom Jones and more.

Tanya Maich - Tanya first started singing with the Basin City Big Band when she was 18 years old. She loves singing and has been building up her repertoire and skill with Jazz standards. Now with all that experience she loves being a part of a big band and mostly enjoys her connection with the audience.

Allison Rangi - Originally from Scotland, Allison Rangi studied a Bachelor of Music Education at the University of Aberdeen. She developed her love of singing with the National Youth Choir of Scotland under the direction of Christopher Bell at the age of 16 and soon after also became a member of TOTAL Aberdeen Youth Choir. Since moving to NZ in 2009, Allison has been a soloist with Opera North and is now thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to sing a variety of popular jazz numbers with the Basin City Big Band.

We welcome back for the second year, The Basin City Big Band. This will be a night to remember.
