Farewell Spit is a quartet of familiar faces performing unfamiliar music. Inspired by the volatile elements and legends of deep-sea adventures, Farewell Spit play slowly evolving, layered epics which are at once calming and devastating.

For this special Wellington Jazz Festival concert they are joined by the extraordinary American drummer Pheeroan Aklaff.

Farewell Spit are: Daniel Beban (electric guitar), Jeff Henderson (electric piano), Tom Callwood (double bass) and Anthony Donaldson (drums, percussion).




Eclectic spot offering modern New Zealand food, spirits and live music amid midcentury furniture and electronics. All Wellington Jazz Festival shows at Meow will start at the advertised time.
