Ol’ King Cole are a Wellington based trio lead by piano/vocalist, Louis Thompson-Munn. The drumless trio perform music inspired by the great Nat ‘King’ Cole and other artists of his era, specifically with a focus on Nat’s early trio which ran from 1943-1950.
The trio consists of Robert ‘Bert Hendo’ Henderson on double bass (The Wellington City Shake-em-on-Downers), and Callum Allardice on guitar (The Jac).
A great and lively performance is always a guarantee with the spirit of the old house band trio alive, before TVs in bars and when people would dance the night away!
Guest Vocalist Stephanie Bishop
