Come to a special Tribute Concert by the Wellington Jazz Club to celebrate and honour Paul Dyne (bassist) and Roger Sellers (drummer) for their outstanding contribution to jazz in Wellington over more than thirty years.

Listen to some exciting music from some of the very best musicians and vocalists who have played with them, including Terry Crayford (piano), Colin Hemmingson (sax), Rodger Fox (trombone), Kevin Clark (piano and trumpet), Anita Schwabe (piano), Noel Clayton (guitar), Denise Harris (vocalist) returning from Australia and other outstanding jazz musicians. Paul and Roger will be part of this exciting group playing great jazz standards.

Paul Dyne and Roger Sellers are two of the country’s most experienced and highly regarded jazz musicians who have set the highest standard of musicianship and entertainment. They have played so much Jazz together since 1981 that they have become almost inseparable, often accompanying international and national jazz celebrities as well as making many recordings.

Paul Dyne has been a vital presence within the Wellington jazz scene for 35 years as an anchorman, both as a performer and educator. He lived in Montreal, Canada, from 1970 until 1980 and played there with top Canadian musicians. He has played on over 150 radio programmes for Radio New Zealand; has recorded over 35 CDs and albums and remains a first choice for backing for over 100 visiting international artists.

Roger Sellers studied jazz in the USA, Britain and Europe and has performed in jazz festivals worldwide. He has recorded in six European countries, the USA, Australia, Canada, and in New Zealand. Since 1975 Roger has been resident in New Zealand and is widely known as one of the country’s greatest percussionists and is known as being insightful and elegant in his playing. He is also one of the most inspirational teachers at the New Zealand School of Music, in Wellington.

For the past 14 years Paul and Roger have performed at the Lido Café as the Boptet.
