Brannigan Kaa then the Neil Billington Band
Friday, 3 July 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
At 6:30pm, we start with Brannigan Kaa.
Brannigan is probably the most popular recording artist on the Maori Radio Network – his 90’s classic Maumahara Noa Ahau (originally released on Tangiora 2) is always on the most-requested lists. His vocal performances are standout. Brannigan can sing blues, funk, reggae, pop, R’n’B, big band sounds and his original compositions are innovative and infectious.
Then at 8:30pm, it’s the Neil Billington Band!
Neil is equally at home whether playing in the ‘Chicago-style’ of Little Walter on the blues harp or reflecting the more sophisticated jazz sensibilities of Belgian jazz great, Jean ‘Toots’ Thielemans, on chromatic harmonica. Neil covers a range of genres, from old-time pre-war blues through to the great Chicago blues harp masters.
The Neil Billington band feature the horn section of Damian Forlong and Andre Paris, the deep grooves of Andrew Richardson and Ross McDermott and the sweaty guitar of Deane Hunter. These elements combined with ill-fitting suits and just the right amount of responsibly imbibed liquor inside the audience, make for the most fun you can have with your pants on!
