Indie pop-rock with a handful of plucked violin is the music of singer songwriter Andrew Keoghan.

Armed with his Grandfather Jack's 100 year old violin, Keoghan plucks the strings of the violin like a guitar and using a bottle neck slide. But the platform of his live show is built from his guitar and loop pedal, allowing him to layer parts, growing his songs from small melodic phrases, into a full band wall of sound, on his own.

Classically trained as a violinist and singer from boy soprano to baritone, his pop sound has evolved through unconventional avenues. He found himself singing in Puccini's opera Turandot at age 21, before turning jazz crooner with The Opie Triptet, Keoghan's Heroes and in a jazz trio with NZ Music Awards jazz album of the year winner Charmaine Ford, in Wellington.

Now based in Auckland, Keoghan's songs address the awkward encounters that can arise from some of life's conundrums - romance, love and loss, dancing at weddings, talking to models and averting the advances of an escort known as 'Gloria'.

With special guests Dictaphone Blues, the brainchild of the talented Edward Castelow. Fresh from touring the globe with pop darlings The Brunettes and with an album in the pipeline himself, don't miss Castelow's set at 8.00pm.
