Jazz On the Village Green - The Little Blast Orchestra
The Little Blast Orchestra is a 7-piece chaos swing ensemble from Wellington.
They play an enticing mix of jazz tunes from the pre bop era. Their music is arranged and lead by Blair Latham (saxophone/clarinet) and Anton Wuts (saxophone/clarinet), and showcases the talents of Dan Yeabsley (contra bass/tuba), Oscar Laven (saxophone/clarinet), Anthony Donaldson (percussion), Mat Enright (trumpet/vocals/guitar) and Adrian Jensen (guitar).
The music is dark, mysterious and light and jovial. Come watch these monsters ply their trade over swing era tunes, you’ll have a blast.
Get into the summer groove with Jazz on the Village Green, held on the Havelock North Village Green (Domain) from late January until early February. Launched in January 2015, the free concert series features local jazz musicians with each concert showcasing a different genre within the jazz tradition.
A great excuse to get together with friends and family, pack a picnic and chill out to some smooth jazz on a mid-summer Saturday afternoon.
