The next generation of jazz musicians from the Wellington High school music program.

Mel Stevenson have been together for over 18 months, with the original members playing together since they were born (which is not that long ago). The band’s captivating, high energy performances convey their great sense of humour and clear love of music, and they are always a highlight at Wellington High’s music evening.

They can regularly be found busking at the Sunday Harbourside Market, and have performed gigs at Moon, the Fringe Bar, private functions at Te Papa, at local school fairs and have a monthly residency at The Newtown Social Club. They’ve played alongside Battleska Galactica and with members of the Rodger Fox band, and are all part of the Vic Uni young musicians programme. This group is one to watch - come catch an early glimpse of the future of jazz.
