From humble roots playing CJs (computer jockeys) in their living room for friends at house parties, Marc Moore and Steve Dunstan aka People Of Paris have grown into the hottest ticket on the Auckland party scene. In the early noughties Auckland clubs were dominated by hip hop and house music and if you weren't into either genre you were screwed for choices. One night Marc decided to break the monotony.

Aside from DJing, People of Paris have organised parties and collaborated with bands such as The Checks, White Birds & Lemons, The Coshercot Honeys, Motocade & The Tutts. They have also played official after-parties for Bloc Party, The Rapture, NZ Fashion Week, & Gnarls Barkely – where they famously dropped the cover version of Crazy by The Kooks while Cee Lo was on the dance floor. It's that combination of irreverent spirit and killer music that keeps each of their parties at max capacity. They're now in high demand for corporate companies and underground gigs alike.

It’s refreshing to encounter an artist who meets the tenets of her genre as easily as Ruby Frost. From the sequins she adores to her heart-quenching tunes, Frost is a pop talent who looks to the likes of Björk and Kate Bush for inspiration, one whose natural ability has allowed her to ignore the formula and cut straight to success. Late nights spent writing have turned her into a night owl; lyrically, the turbulent waters of relationships, infatuations and disasters act as muse. Ironically, Frost admits, music has become her full time boyfriend. No fleeting crush, it’s a love affair destined to bloom.

The line up includes: A Hori Buzz, Andrew Keoghan, Anika Moa, Annabel Fay, Avalanche City, Barnaby Weir, Bic Runga, Cairo Knife Fight, Che Fu, Clap Clap Riot, Dave Dobbyn, Dave McArtney & Friends, Don McGlashan, Dukes, F In Math, Greg Fleming & The Trains, Greg Johnson, Hello Sailor, Jan Hellriegel, Jason Kerrison featuring The Babysitters Circus, Jonny Love, LA Mitchell, Luke Thompson, Motocade, Nairobi Trio, Nathan Haines and the Dream Band, People of Paris, The Peter Urlich Sextet, Ruby Frost, The Jordan Luck Band, The Thomas Oliver Band.

Tickets are limited and go on-sale on Friday 15th April via Ticketmaster – www.ticketmaster.co.nz or phone 0800 111 999. Full show info is available at www.whiskeybars.com.
