Hot on the Heels of their new release album 'Get It Together' with Spikey Tee & Iva Lamkum going gold, Sola Rosa perform for the first time in Havelock North in the Black Barn Underground Cellar.

Since 1999 Sola Rosa’s Andrew Spraggon has been tantalising listeners with otherworldly aural experiences, honing his craft and taking Sola Rosa from a self-released one man project to fully-fledged live powerhouse along the way. He’s kept good company on the road and in the studio, Sola Rosa counting members of Dimmer, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Goldenhorse, Pluto and Sommerset amongst the ranks over the years, not to mention pilfering the best members of Che Fu, King Kapisi and Anika Moa’s bands and tapping the talents of internationally renowned artists like Nathan Haines and Spikey Tee.

Picking up where the performance-based Moves On album left off in 2005, there’s a sweating, smoking live band at the heart of the new record, made up of long-term members of the Rosa roster, Will Scott (drums), Matt Short (bass) & Ben White (guitar). The songs on their 4th album have then been swathed in Spraggon studio sorcery, tooled-up for maximum dancefloor impact & bolstered by a roll-call of vocalists & musicians running headlong into Sola Rosa's sonic stirrings at full force with vocal cuts from Spikey Tee (best known for his work with Jah Wobble, Bomb The Bass, Mark Rae & on some of Sola Rosa's finest moments); German globetrotter Bajka; UK MC Serocee; & emerging Wellingtonian songstress Iva Lamkum.
