Coming Events

Sunshine Sound System

Dates: Friday, 31 May

DJ Downtown Brown & MC KPZ are making their way back to Gisborne to bring us a fantastic night featuring dancehall, funk, hiphop and jungle beats!

Sunshine Sound System was formed in 2000 when Downtown Brown (Simon Hendl) moved to Queenstown after finishing his medical degree, instantly connecting with the extraordinary talents of both P Digsss (Paora Apera) of Shapeshifter and KPZ (Kyle Popham). They have been smashing shows the length of NZ ever since with their trademark soundsystem-style celebration of hip-hop, reggae/dub, dancehall, original skool soul and funk, all the way though to glitch, jungle and trap.

Daniel Champagne

Dates: Saturday, 13 July

The young virtuoso recently described as “the finest guitar player of this generation” has fallen in love with New Zealand and after sellout tours through North America and Europe he will be back for an extensive national run of 35 shows!

Growing up in the Bega Valley on the Far South Coast of New South Wales, Australia the story goes that the young singer-songwriter and one of a kind guitar virtuoso first picked up his instrument of choice as a 5-year-old following in the footsteps of a musical father. He began writing songs at 12, training classically throughout his teens and performing wherever he could, honing his craft and developing the dynamite live show that he is renowned for today. At 18 he finished school, turned professional and hit the road without looking back.

The following 15 years have seen him independently release 7 studio albums, tour relentlessly around the globe, play some of the biggest festivals under the sun and share stages with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, INXS, John Butler, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Judy Collins and Rodrigo y Gabriela.

He has been described as “the finest guitar player of this generation”, “a leading light in acoustic music” and “a performer that must be seen to be believed” and from March to June 2024 he will be touring Canada, from Vancouver Island in the West out to Newfoundland in the east and 56 towns in between!
