Two terrific trios, separate and together - one great night of music!

Andrew London and the Kokomo boys have been friends for many years but they rarely get to play together. In August 2017 they joined forces for a sensational show at the Omokoroa Boat Club. Now, by popular demand, they're doing it again! Join them for a night of musical adventure and fun.

Note: For Omokoroa Boat Club members discounted tickets are available from the Boat Club.

The Andrew London Trio -
Many know of Hot Club Sandwich, for many years the country's premier swing trio, noted not only for their fantastic musicianship but also a slew of humorous songs skewering the pretensions of middle-class New Zealand.

4 years ago singer and songwriter Andrew London formed his new band, the Andrew London Trio, featuring ex-Hot Club Sandwich woodwind exponent Nils Olsen on jazz-influenced saxophone, clarinet and flute and bass and vocals from Kirsten London.

If you haven't yet been exposed to the band then the song titles say it all: 'Let's Talk About Me', 'I Hugged My Mate', 'Country's Buggered', 'I Think I'll Buy a Yacht'. Andrew's whimsical songs reflect the national psyche with gentle irreverence, and playfully lampoon many of New Zealand society's obsessions and taboos. Reviewers have made comparisons to Fred Dagg, Flanders and Swann and even Noel Coward.

Kokomo (unplugged) -
Blues 'n' roots favourites, Kokomo (originally “Kokomo Blues”) have been together now for 27 years, and are renowned for dynamic live shows and widely acclaimed songwriting. The band has toured extensively throughout New Zealand, performing at the country’s major rock, blues, jazz and folk festivals.

The band has also released ten albums and a live concert DVD. Two are collections of traditional blues while others feature the band’s own songs. Most recently in Tauranga, the band staged a sold-out concert "The Songs of Bob Dylan" to celebrate one of their musical icons.

For this special show, Kokomo is very excited to be returning to the acoustic trio line-up of their early years, Derek Jacombs, Grant Bullot and Nigel Masters delivering gutsy blues and their own songs with acoustic guitar, blues harp and upright bass.
