Wellington Heads CD Launch

Thursday, 17 March 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Wellington Heads

Southern Night Sky is Wellington Heads 5th album and is a mix of songs written by band nucleus; Neil Worboys, Geoff Keith and Bill Wood. There’s been a huge amount of collaboration with Nick van Dijk (trumpet, trombone), James Tait- Jamieson (saxes) and Andrew Richardson (Drums) to develop the songs and sound engineer Andrew Downes has worked with the band all the way to ensure we got down what we wanted to get down!

Wn Hds will be playing the whole album on the 17th March and also a few favourites from previous albums. As well as free entry on the night there will be a special ‘CD Launch’ price for the album!!

Listen to an interview with Wellington Heads and some sample tracks off the new album on  Capital Blues Radio Show:

 

 

Named after the striking features on Wellington’s rugged southern coastline, Wellington Heads have been playing in and around the capital city for more than 10 years. They have evolved their own sound through the influences of Kansas and New Orleans style blue jazz, the swinging rhythm n blues of Louis Jordan and Ray Charles, and infused with Pacific/Hawaiian rhythms and Latino feels. Their songs take a wry view of life with a distinctive Wellington flavour.
