Beyondsemble is a fresh new band playing some of the most exciting, energetic and enchanting acoustic music to come out of NZ in recent times. Specialising in diversity and with a strong improvisational edge, their repertoire covers a vast scope of styles including Gypsy, Eastern European, Latin, Tango, Pop, Jazz, Swing, Rocksteady, Bluegrass and Celtic Music. An eclectic mix of tunes and songs both original and sourced from around the globe executed with virtuosic skill, passion, energy and joy. Music to move you and make you move.

The band is well suited to perform in either a more intimate theatre type setting or a larger dance type venue having a large and adaptable repertoire for either type of occasion. In 2010 Beyondsemble provided all preshow music for the World of WearableArt awards in Wellington over 2 weeks in September and October and have recently returned from a tour of Europe. They have toured NZ twice before under their own steam and are looking forward to being back on the road here, as a part of Arts on Tour, relishing the chance to perform outside of the main centres.

With a mix of seasoned professional musicians and fresh talent, Beyondsemble consists of Craig Denham (Mamaku Project, ex-Ardijah, Club Manouche, etc....) on Accordion, Keyboards, Vocals and Whistles, Jess Hindin (The Exiles, Tim Beverage, Boh Runga, etc....) on Violin and Keyboards, Chris Koole (The Warners!) on Vocals and home made percussion and rising acoustic guitar star Mark Mazengarb on guitars and bouzuki.

Music to move you and make you move – Beyondsemble AOTNZ tour 2 Sep-1 Oct

Ever since its 2009 debut, Beyondsemble, ‘the ensemble beyond genre’ has excited audiences with its enormous vitality and range.

“I’ve played in numerous bands and dreamed about creating one band that could play it all,” says the Beyondsemble’s Craig Denham. ‘This band can.”

All four members are multi instrumentalists able to perform in a range of musical styles merging Celtic, Eastern European and Gypsy with Latin and tango rhythms as well as improvising in jazz, swing and rock.

Besides seasoned professional Craig Denham (Mamaku Project, ex-Ardijah, Club Manouche etc) on accordion, keyboards, vocals and whistles, the band consists of Jess Hindin (The Exiles, Tim Beveridge, Boh Runga etc) on violin and keyboards, Chris Koole (The Warners) on vocals and home made percussion, and rising acoustic guitar star Mark Mazengarb on guitars and bouzouki.

The ensemble, which provided the pre show music for the 2010 World of Wearable Art awards in Wellington, will launch its first studio album, Beyondsemble, on this, the group’s first tour with Arts On Tour NZ.
