The Dancing & Drinking Society

Friday, 11 August 2023 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Wellington blues

The Dancing & Drinking Society (or DADS for short), is New Zealand’s premier exponent of authentic 1920s Blues & Jass.


Their repertoire includes many of the Rags, Rambles, Shuffles, Drags, and Blues that our great-grandparents would have shimmied to in the juke joints, speakeasies, woolsheds and Memorial Halls of 1920s New Zealand.


Although this combo has a mere 4 members, it has the impact of a full Syncopating-Orchestra, with multiple instruments being played simultaneously by multiple band members.


Blair “Sweet-Lips” Latham – Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone

Mat “Mon Colonel” Enright – Trumpet, Resonator Guitar, Vocals

Adrian “AJ” Jensen – Gypsy Guitar, Bass Drum

Daniel “Pappy” Yeabsley -Tuba, Hi-Hat.
