Add to shortlist


Rock out to a gala performance of pure musical heart and soul

Robben Ford was named “one of the 100 greatest guitarists of the 20th century” (Musician), and singer Lydia Pense has been a powerful presence on stage for four decades with the band Cold Blood.

A five-time Grammy Award nominee, guitarist Robben Ford’s virtuosic playing and artful songwriting earned him a 2017 debut at #2 on the Blues Charts for his latest album, Into the Sun. Rock-soul-jazz singer Lydia Pense has been said to be imbued with the spirit of Janis Joplin – see her weave her lyrical magic in her first ever performance in New Zealand.

The evening will be opened by a performance from the New Zealand School of Music jazz students – hear the up-and-coming talent of jazz in New Zealand.

Plus you can catch Robben Ford earlier in the day in a special workshop as part of the NZSM Jazz Project.
