New Zealand’s finest artists come together to celebrate the legend Bob Marley in a series of concerts this summer.
Tiki Taane, Boh Runga, Logan Bell, Annie Crummer, Laughton Kora, Warren Maxwell, Anna Coddington, Fran Kora and Jayson Norris will perform his biggest hits including Get Up Stand Up, 3 Little Birds, Stir It Up, Redemption Song, Turn Your Lights Down Low, Buffalo Soldier, Punky Reggae Party, Exodus, No Woman No Cry, One Love and many many more.
They will be backed by the NZ All-Stars band, featuring musicians from Katchafire, The Black Seeds, Kora, L.A.B and Supergroove. Grenville Bell, guitar, Haani Totorewa, keyboards and Leon Davy, percussion, Fran Kora, bass and vocals; Lucien Johnson, sax and Barrett Hocking, trumpet; Paul Russell, drums; Joel Shadbolt, guitar; Shelton Woolright, guest drums and Godfrey de Grut, keyboards, with our very own I-Threes on backing vocals, Boh, Annie and Anna.
Two new additions to the All-Star line-up originally hail from the Northland region. Warren Maxwell needs no introduction to NZ music lovers. An incredibly gifted and innovative song-writer, composer and music mentor, Warren was a founding member of Trinity Roots, leader of the psychedelic folk band, Little Bushman and a past member of Fat Freddy’s Drop.
Kaitaia born, London based Jayson Norris combines his love of singer-songwriters, indigenous music and all things rock, to create his distinct sound of acoustic, roots-rock. Based in London for over a decade, and as one of the original loopers, Jayson Norris' live show continually wows audiences across the globe. His EP release in October 2016 ‘Eroded’ (Engineered and Co-produced by Paul Matthews of I Am Giant) went straight to the charts being the highest selling NZ album at #7 on the iTunes album charts, peaking at #2 on the rock album charts, plus he also broke in to the top 50 in the UK iTunes album charts. Jayson will be returning to his home region to open for and appear in the Marley NZ All-Stars.
Platinum selling artist Annie Crummer joins the NZ All-Star line-up as a vocalist, replacing Ria Hall for the February shows. Annie has had an incredible career to date, supporting superstars such as Sir Paul McCartney, K.D Lang, Ray Charles, Sting and Michael Jackson. In 2011 she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Pacific Music Awards. Fans will know Annie’s voice well from iconic NZ hits such as ‘See What Love Can Do’ featuring Herbs, ‘For Today’ with Netherworld Dancing Toys and ‘Melting Pot’ with When The Cats Away. She will perform as a solo vocalist as well as completing our i-Threes (backing vocalists) with Boh Runga and Anna Coddington.
Local Northland DJ, Big G will be on the decks during the concert with his skanking reggae, dancehall mixes.
“Our line-up is overflowing with incredible NZ musicians,’ says promoter Jackie Sanders ‘the NZ All-Stars project has brought this very special group together to celebrate Uncle Bob and we extremely proud of the result. This is no tribute show, this is a powerful music experience that fans will love.”
The vineyard’s natural amphitheatre was the setting for the sold out UB40 concert earlier this year. The event is family-friendly with children 14yrs and under able to attend free of charge with a paying adult. Additional child tickets will be available at the gate for $10. A range of delicious street food and of course Kainui Road wines and craft and standard beers will be available on site, but concert-goers may bring sealed water and non-commercial food.
Gates will now open at 4.00pm and the concert finishes at 10pm. Parking is available but space is limited, we ask patrons to carpool or utilise the return bus services scheduled from around the region.
