Featuring: Auckland’s own Parisian-chic jazz trio French Toast with special guest Nigel Gavin.
"More French than the French", the trio of French Toast features Linn Lorkin, chanteuse, Hershal Herscher accordéoniste and Pierre Scott, bassiste. With a repertoire of authentic French chansons and forays into Italian and German, they have been delighting audiences in New Zealand for many years, taking them from the intimate café in the heart of Paris, to piazza on a warm Roman night and a Berlin cabaret. "..the Piaf of the Pacific." New Zealand Listener
Smooth and funky local favourites Leza Corban & Friends.
Rolling out a range of jazz classics, funky grooves and nu soul, you’ll be swooning to the fantastic vocals of Leza Corban (Strawpeople, Union), backed by some of New Zealand's coolest musos. Leza will have you chilling back, and kicking off your heels for a groove on the grass. “Leza has delved into her record collection and picked some of the sexiest, smoothest and sassiest tunes ever made. We're talking Al Green, Erykah Badu, Aretha, Sade, Angie Stone, Stevie Wonder, Luther - if it's classic and gorgeous they do it!”
