For over 20 years Andrew London has been entertaining crowds from Stewart island to the far North, firstly with swing trio Hot Club Sandwich and more recently under his own name. The trio played festivals in Australia and Norfolk island and was flown to Saudi Arabia to perform at the New Zealand Embassy before an international audience. His quirky satirical songs have graced movie soundtracks, European dance compilation albums, National Radio’s ‘Greatest Song Ever Written’, and even a year 13 English Syllabus.

His ‘Lucky Break’ came when his wife Kirsten got tired of staying at home and took up the bass guitar. With the aid of fellow Hot Club Sandwich ex-members James Tait Jamieson (sax, whistle, melodica and spoons) and Neil ‘Blowtorch’ Billington (harmonica) the Lucky Break band will deliver a combination of hilarious satire, scintillating swing and barnstorming blues that focus attention on many of Kiwi society’s obsessions and taboos such as rugby, coffee, pretentious socialites, consumer culture and the generation gap.

The location will be as special as the music. Whakaipo Lodge, near Whakaipo Bay on Lake Taupo, is graced with stunning gardens in a very secluded setting but is less than 10 minutes from Taupo. Bring along a picnic, rug and chilled out vibe for a late summer "Lucky Break" to remember. Gates open at 3pm. Parking on site - please follow the marshals instructions.

$5 from each ticket sale goes to supporting Bike Taupo, who will also have a Gourmet BBQ fundraiser at the concert. Taupo's own Volcanic Coffee will be there too.
