An all-star band of Aotearoa musicians journeys through the timeless catalogue of one of the greats of our time, in an intimate, yet epic homage.

Bill Withers Social Club is an ode to an American singer-songwriter whose stories of love, hardship, friendship, and whānau have shaped a generation of local musicians and touched the world.

Vocalists Troy Kingi, Dallas Tamaira, Rio Hemopo, and L.A. Mitchell honour the soul legend’s passing in March 2020 alongside band members Iraia Whakamoe and Ryan Prebble (The Nudge, Fly My Pretties); Adan Tijerina (The Yoots, Ahoribuzz), and Daniel Hayles (Lord Echo, Hollie Smith).

From ‘Lean on Me’ to ‘Use Me’, ‘Grandma’s Hands’, ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’, and many more, each vocalist’s song selections reflect their personal connection to the Bill Withers legacy, while leaning into his signature relaxed style of performing.

Join us for one extraordinary evening as we celebrate the man and his work in the whakapapa of New Zealand music.

Doors open at 7.30pm.
Artists on stage at 8.00pm.
