TOO MANY CHIEFS at Whakaipo Lodge Winter Concert, 2-4pm, Saturday 16th June 2018.

Join us for our very first Winter Concert, in the new marquee in our Lodge grounds.
Too Many Chiefs: Rob Joass, Wayne Mason, Laura Collins and Andrew London collaborate in a two hour show that celebrates Kiwi song writing and performance in styles from slinky jazz and raunchy blues to driving country and contemplative folk.
Collins’ mournful ballads sit next to London’s whimsical tracks, Joass’ country-Americana and Wayne Mason’s classicism. Each person supports the other, instruments are swapped and you can feel the level of enjoyment they get from playing with each other, and the combined years of experience shows.
Too Many Chiefs will be bringing tunes from their recent release “So Many Tracks,” amongst others, to the Whakaipo Lodge Winter Concert. Expect a celebration of song writing, more wit than you can poke a stick at and a great afternoon’s entertainment.
Tickets are $35 each. (Covered seating and a warming mug of home-made soup & fresh bread roll included.)
Tickets are seriously limited so get in quick!
