Every Thursday evening we kick off cocktail hour with Dick Martin (of Dick Martin and Mr Martini), always dressed for the occasion and ready to shake it he showcases rare gems from his vaults of vintage vinyl. Specializing in Lounge, Latin, Exotica and Hawaiian.

As Dick Martin winds down the turntables our live entertainment winds up. Each week we bring you fresh new ensembles that you can get your lounge on to.

Li'l Chuck is an authentic one man band performing 'good time music with old time style'.

Blessed with the ability to handle multiple instruments at a time, he is the master of coordination: blowin', suckin' and pluckin' simultaneously! He cranks out the harmonica, resonator guitar, kick drum, hi-hat, kazoo and vocals to give the audience a rollicking good time.

Li'l Chuck has spent a lifetime rummaging through the drawers of 1930's - '50s music. His mainly original songs are inspired by the sounds of the era - Blues, Early Jazz, Western Swing, Ragtime etc. and are uniquely presented in the style of the street performers from those glory days.

Originally hailing from the UK, Li'l Chuck first stomped out his music in Christchurch, New Zealand after relocating in 2003.

Seeing is believing - he aims to prove that men can indeed, multitask.
