Paddy Burgin and the Wooden Box Band produce what music reviewer Nick Bollinger calls "handmade music of the finest kind".

Incorporating slide acoustic guitars, percussion and other instruments, they take you on a journey around New Zealand to meet the people and places that have inspired their songs and instrumentals. The band's style traverses blues, folk, and old time jazz, with touches of country.

Recent gigs for the band have included opening the annual Organic River Festival near Levin. For the Acoustic Routes concert at Ruby Lounge, Paddy will be joined by Bruce McNaught on percussion and Joe Callwood from Little Bushman on guitar. Paddy is a guitar-maker by day, and his performances feature his instruments.

Opening the April 25 concert will be two more first-rate acts: Celia Briar and friends, including Duncan Davidson, will play "a mix of soul soothers and toe tappers, mainly from the Celtic traditions, on a variety of acoustic instruments including harps, flutes and mandolins"; and veteran singer and multi-instrumentalist Murray Kilpatrick will share some of his wide repertoire which ranges from Kiwi songs to blues and gentle jazz.
