Emerging artist series at Capital Blues Inc.

Formed from fresh talent from Wellington's own New Zealand School of Music who still be diggin’ on James Brown, Pete’s NolaCoaster strives to find out what is hip? Featuring true uncut funk from all your favourite soulicious artists from the likes of Tower of Power, Earth Wind and Fire, The Commodores, and many more. Now’s the time to leave your brick house ensuring you bring your soul vaccination pass and your best attitude dance, as we are not liable for any illness or injury (please file complaints with the boogie). Keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times because the NolaCoaster is leaving the station.
