Home one last time! New Zealand

This week: An "I've run out of time" playlist Yes folks, it's happened - a post lockdown week made of pressure and busies. So with some apology, but still a good viewing experience, I give you someone else's playlist. As a bonus though, there is an extra hour and a half of listening. 🙂 Should remind you of the…

Brannigan Kaa then the Neil Billington Band

Friday, 3 July 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Jack Hackett’s, 1 Dixon Street
Wellington, 6011 New Zealand

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’…
