Looking For Alaska – Saturday 10th October 2020

Looking For Alaska

Members Aaron Gott and Amy Maynard offer up a sound rooted in country-style guitar and soaring harmonies woven together at their very fibre, intensified by their on-stage chemistry. The duo’s familiarity, closeness and authenticity is fuelled by their real-life romance, creating a magnetic performance style that captivates their audience time and time again, and has seen them open for the likes of Fly My Pretties, Herbs and Tiny Ruins, and as a featured act at the ​Canterbury Folk Festival.

Having performed together extensively since they bonded during a recording assignment at music school in 2012, Aaron and Amy embarked upon their newest musical endeavour Looking For Alaska two years ago, and have since worked tirelessly to create a collection of original material, ranging from thigh-slapping, foot-stomping folk sing-alongs, to poignant heart-rending ballads drenched in melancholy.

CONCERT with Aro – Saturday 14th November 2020

This will be the first time we’ve put on a concert for some time, but we’ve got some great guests, and a great support act, to make it all worthwhile.

Aro

Aro are a husband and wife duo, made up of Charles (Ngāpuhi) and Emily Looker (nee Rice). The pair met at Te Whare Wānanga o Tāmaki Makaurau (University of Auckland), both studying for a Bachelor of Music (Pop), and discovered that they shared a passion for the power of language and music to tell stories, create community and remind us of our cultural identity.

Love defines this jazz-pop-RnB, husband & wife pair, and harmony is their signature.


And if that’s not enough to get you excited local group HIGH, WIDE & HANDSOME will be filling the stage and your eardrums to open the evening.


ADMISSION: MEMBERS $20, PUBLIC $25

Unless advertised otherwise all events are at the Paturoa Bay Residents and Ratepayers Hall at Titirangi Beach, which is down at the bottom of Titirangi Beach Road, adjacent to the Car Park.
