Details and Contact

This time, Ben’s prodigy son Tom (who is not allowed time out of the Purcell Music School for extended tours like this), will be replaced on sax by none other than the legendary Derek Nash – in Ben’s opinion probably the finest sax player in Britain. Derek has his own group Sax Appeal, and has performed regularly with all the great ones, like Eric Clapton & Jools Holland.

The line-up also includes the fantastically talented locals, Mike Story on double bass – Ben’s favourite bass player, and the remarkable Henare (H) Kaa on drums.

Ben has recently been declared ‘Best Boogie Pianist in Europe’, and with his eclectic range of music spanning Rock 'n Roll of the Chuck Berry & Jerry Lee Lewis genre (he has played with both of them) to Rhythm and Blues, the audience are assured an energetic evening of nonstop rock ’n rolling.

The last tour’s concerts were sell outs, and this one gig in Akaroa promises to be the same.

Ben comes to NZ after a busy schedule in Australia, where he will perform at prestigious venues including the Sydney Opera House and Byron Bay.

Ticket are $100, with once again 50% of the ticket price will go towards the fundraising efforts of the Akaroa Health Hub. 

Booking can be made at Eventfinda. 

Tables of 6, 8 & 10 can be arranged for an additional fee of $10 per person.  Apply by email to akaroamusic@gmail.com
