Andrew London, front man and songwriter of the well known band Hot Club Sandwich will open the 2013 Mulled Wine Series with his Andrew London Trio.

Andrew London's satirical and quirky songs have been the backbone of Wellington trio Hot Club Sandwich's repertoire for over a dozen years. Their humour and gentle cynicism has been heard as far afield as Sydney, Norfolk Island and Saudi Arabia, on National Radio's 'Best Song Ever Written' programme, in a Year 13 English syllabus, and on movie soundtracks including 'Second Hand Wedding'. Drawing from his canon of work with both Hot Club Sandwich and Tui-nominated Kapiti country five-piece the Cattlestops, and introducing a few new as-yet-unrecorded songs, Andrew draws inspiration from pretentious socialites, coffee and rugby culture to household appliances, Frank Sinatra and the curses of aging. Andrew currently performs most often with his own trio featuring Kirsten London on bass, and ex-Hot Club Sandwich saxophonist Nils Olsen, just returned from three years in Germany. As an extra Mulled Wine treat, Gilbert Haisman from Paekakariki will, by invitation add his jazz piano skills to the mix.

The Mulled Wine Concert Series organised by Wellington pianist Mary Gow has been running in Paekakariki since 2008. Mainly classical in nature, the series has received rapturous critical acclaim and has been hailed by critics as a noteworthy addition to the Wellington music scene. The artistic community of Paekakariki plays host to its wonderful Memorial Hall, set in a glorious sea-front location. Concert-goers can combine their musical experiences with walks on the beach, relaxing in the excellent cafes and enjoying the stunning view of Kapiti Island. In the next concert in the Mulled Wine series, Donald Armstrong (assistant concert-master of the NZSO) and Jian Liu (piano) will present a recital including Beethoven and Cesar Franck on Sunday 24 March.

Mary Gow says “We always like to start our year with a bang and this year is no exception. Hot Club Sandwich got a great reception when they played here last and we are sure that this slightly different line-up will prove just as popular”.

Wine/beer available from bar from 7pm - no BYO, please!
