Jazz and Classical worlds find common ground.

Charlie Parker with Strings was an album by jazz musician Charlie Parker, released by Verve Records in January 1995. The sessions place Parker in the context of a small classical string section and a jazz rhythm section, rather than his standard bebop quintet. They were Parker's most popular sellers during his lifetime, and were admitted to the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1988.

Famed American alto-saxophonist Dick Oatts combines with a rhythm section, string quartet, two woodwind players under the musical direction of iconic kiwi jazz musician Rodger Fox will recreate this series of musical arrangements as well as adding new arrangements of “Parker's” Bebop era.

Guest Artist Dick Oatts is an international featured soloist best known as the lead alto player in the Thad Jones | Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra from the late 70s and still holds down that role in the present day incarnation the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. Oatts has accompanied such vocalists as Joe Williams, Sarah Vaughan. Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme, and Milton Nascimento. He has recorded solos for R&B artist, Luther Vandross and Everything but the Girl.

Hear swinging rhythms with lush strings and a twist of BeBop.

Three of the country's finest musicians stomp and parp across a musical landscape of blues, roots, soul and jazz live on stage. You'll see sweat dripping from the furrowed foreheads of these musicians as they ring every last decibel from their trumpets, trombones, tubas, bass clarinets, tenor saxophones, cornets and pianos. Did we mention the vibraphone....? It's an exotic and atmospheric pitched percussion instrument usually found at the back of the orchestra or holding up a Henry Mancini film score. This show is a journey through what's possible with these unconventional instruments.

You may recognise Tim Stewart and Nick Atkinson from Hopetoun Brown as the horn-section and founding members of local funk juggernaut Supergroove. They also play horns for Tami Neilson when she's in town, but they've been making waves with their unique duo up and down the nation, often with their key collaborator Finn Scholes in attendance. Scholes was hand-picked by Neil Finn for his recent tour to Australia and South East Asia and it's a measure of the musician that Neil chose Finn mainly for his outstanding skills on his second instrument, the piano. While Finn Scholes dazzles at the keyboard, it's his chops on the trumpet that leaves audiences with jaws agape. Just ask those who saw these three players perform at WOMAD or the recent Waiheke Jazz Festival. Grab your tickets now!

The Nukes from West Auckland are far more than a ukulele band. Part vaudeville, part rat-pack, part musical car crash, this talented trio deliver an engaging mix of humour and originality that audiences of all ages will love. The innocent little uke is the instrument of choice and people will be staggered by what the Nukes are able to achieve with it. Great song-writing, musicianship and 3-part harmony combine to create a truly memorable, entertaining experience. Aotearoa’s favourite original ukulele trio began life in a humble but spectacular fashion way back in the heady days of 2008. Founded by Dave Parker, Ben Collier and Dave ‘Snapper’ Thiele, The Nukes promptly set about carving themselves a cozy niche in the cutthroat world of the New Zealand ukulele scene. Many roads have been travelled in the decade since, many songs have been sung and many challenges overcome.

Luckily you won’t have to wait too long because the lads are coming back to UXBRIDGE!
