Brew up some bathtub gin and get togged to the bricks! The Wellington City Shake-­’em-­on-Downers are the Strait city's most swinging septet, with tunes that take you back to scintillating nights at the speakeasy.

The Shake-­’em-on Downers have thrilled audiences and startled wildlife from Waiheke to Milford Sound, with energetic and iconoclastic interpretations of vintage jazz classics.

As well as standards from the New Orleans and swing songbook, they also perform raging new compositions inspired by the era. Described as ‘hot Dadaist swing’, the Shake-­’em-­on -Downers will serve you up a spicy gumbo of musical treats!
