The Nudge - Tropical Downbeat Orchestra - Ben Throp & the Intimate Strangers - DJ Brother Charlie

Singer, and principal songwriter Ryan Prebble is the swampy bluesman. His gritty tone and brutal blues vocals are
laced with messages of social values, personal freedom and the ways of love. James Coyle produces savage tones on a vintage organ, that effortlessly swirl around like a Leslie Cabinet,with warm low frequency modulations of keyboard bass that will crisp any crust. Add to the mix the solid thunderous, tribal, uniquely funky jackhammer beats of Hawke's Bay expat, Iraia Whakamoe, and you have The Nudge.

The Tropical Downbeat Orchestra are infamous in Hawke's Bay. Their music is brooding, hypnotic, with jazz-infused notes and sophisticated improvisations weave seamlessly with an extremely well ‘greased’ rhythm section creating something sounding utterly fresh and new.

Ben Throp and The Intimate Strangers are fresh from the recent release of his latest album "House Warming" and are a blend clever elements of folk, blues, reggae, funk and jazz, delivered with thoughtful yet accessible lyrics.

Bring in DJ Brother Charlie a.k.a Rakai Karaitiana to bring raise the mood and you have a formidable group of musicians that will bring a concert like no other within the surrounds of the summer market round.

As part of this event Black Barn Vineyards are proud to support Te Mata Park and their significant efforts to bring to fruition the visitor centre.
The Te Mata Park Trust has long had a vision of establishing a Visitor & Education Centre within the Park to ensure the value of this wonderful community asset is maintained and protected. Partnering with Black Barn and other local stakeholders the trust is holding the concert as a fundraiser.
