A super-group of New Zealand’s finest artists come together to celebrate the legend Bob Marley in a series of concerts this summer, with a Northland show now added!
Marley – NZ All-stars Celebrate the Legend will be staged at:
- Wharepai Domain, Tauranga, on Friday, 9 December
- Black Barn Vineyard, Havelock North, on Saturday, 10 December
- Kainui Road Vineyard, Kerikeri, on Friday 17 February 2017
- Hamilton Gardens, Hamilton on Saturday 18 February 201
Tiki Taane, Boh Runga, Logan Bell, Ria Hall, 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, Ria 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. He has collaborated with many fellow musicians, including the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and we are thrilled he can join the NZ All-Stars for the Northland concert.
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.
Concert promoter Jackie Sanders says the NZ All-Stars project brings together some of New Zealand’s finest artists to recognise and celebrate Bob Marley’s legacy in this country.
“It is an honour to be able to celebrate this legend with so many amazing artists. Bob Marley had a huge impact on New Zealand, influencing many of the artists we love today and his music became the soundtrack to a kiwi summer. It will be perfect to listen to these songs recreated in the stunning surrounds of Kainui Road Vineyard”
