Geoff Rowe – Saturday 14th September

Geoff Rowe

Geoff Rowe has spent twenty years writing songs, six months building his newest guitar, and ten minutes writing this sentence. Like an unattended petri dish, Geoff’s mind is a breeding ground for a variety of popular culture, and his songs are the same. He can have you laughing at absurdity, or reflecting in melancholy. Both Roger Giles and Michael Young have called him one of their favourite songwriters, and neither of them agreed to put that in print. Once described by his partner as “If you took Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop and RnB, you would be none of those things”.

Geoff has previously released an album called ‘Sweet, Sad and Silly’, named so because those are the types of songs he tends to write. This can be found on Spotify and iTunes. Having spent the last six months building a replacement guitar, which he named Patience, he is now recording follow up album: ‘Waiting for Patience’. You can find a full build log of Patience on his website, where he also blogs about a new song every week. He hopes to see you at Titirangi, by which time he should be cured of referring to himself in the third person.

Friday Folk ‘n’ Jam – Friday 27th September

Circle of Friday night musicians in the Beach Hall
Circle of Friday night musicians in the Titirangi Beach Hall

An evening of taking turns to share music and songs around the circle, joining in when you can, with harmonies on your instrument or voice. Participate or listen. The choice is yours.

We’re a totally informal, small friendly group of people who like to sing and play music. This is a good place for experienced musicians to meet up and enjoy playing together.

If you do not sing or play and would like to then here you’ll find encouragement. There is never any pressure and you may wish to visit a few times to get confidence or you may already be confident, it does not matter, no one will criticise, only support.

Doors open 7.30pm for a 7.30pm Start
Admission $3
