Soak up the sounds of some of Wellington's finest musicians.

Assembled by trumpet player Alexis French (Harbour City Electric, The Black Seeds) on his return from New York in 2011, the Richter City Rebels are Wellingtons first and finest New Orleans Second Line Brass Band. Drawing on the rich traditions of blues, jazz, soul and funk that make up the New Orleans brass-band sound, the Rebels get feet a-dancin' and hips a-shakin'.

Featuring an all-star line-up including tenor maestro Adam Page (Band of Thousands), prolific trombonist Matt Allison (NZSO), and drumming wunderkind Lauren Ellis (RFWJO), the Rebels combine masterful musicianship with a Mardi Gras party, and will leave you breathless.

Enjoy pizza at Café Reka and check out the latest exhibitions. All galleries, café, bar, shop and upstairs lounge are open till 9pm. Entry by Koha.
