Live Music – Good Habits Band

Good Habits are an eclectic indie-folk band creating immersive, multimedia gigs and projects. They produce innovative originals and covers, demonstrating the diverse capabilities of their instruments blending it with poetic songwriting.

The duo is formed of Singer-Cellist and Songwriter Bonnie Schwarz and international Klezmer accordionist, Pete Shaw.

Sitting comfortably on the boundary between folk and pop, Good Habits take inspiration from The Moulettes’ raw, string energy and combine it with the pop-folk intimacy of First Aid Kit. As the main songwriter, Bonnie Schwarz’ vocal style parallels that of Kate Bush and Feist, living within the sound world instrumentation of cello and accordion.

Live Music – Zarek & Albi

Zarek & Albi combine elements of musical virtuosity, energetic intensity and theatrical performance topped off with a dose of light hearted Kiwi humour. The two long time friends deliver a hilarious and heartwarming stage show.

Each performer, in their own right, is a one man show, but when they come together something special happens. Zarek utilises his experience as a solo acoustic guitarist and session player to lead the instrumentation, which is complemented by Albi’s silky vocals and songwriting expertise.

Expect original pieces, covers and a great night out.

We love being a venue for live music – especially our summer time open air concerts (or maybe our intimate candlelit winter concerts with the moon behind the cathedral window…). So please get in touch if you are interested in performing here – we would love to hear from you.

We also like hearing from people who have different ideas for events or something they would like to see us do here as your local venue. Drop us a line.
