The Small Hall Sessions bring HB Music Month Ongaonga Hall

32 Bridge Street, Ongaonga

Celebrating Hawke’s Bay’s locally grown music in our local halls, we bring you three extraordinary artists.

First up tonight we have Liberty – local favourite and talented local Singer-Songwriter Liberty performs an eclectic set of acoustic pop originals with edgy lyrics and funky tunes!

Ben Throp Ben's music transcends genres. His work is complex and soulful yet has an underlying uniqueness and identity which weaves its way amongst different styles. His lyrics are meaningful, often encompassing a sense of activism. There are also songs inspired by travel and adventure but ultimately Ben’s songs all encompass feelings of hope, courage, and love. “May your light surround you….may your love lead the way…..may your mountain guide you….through the rest of your days……” - The Blessing

Devils Elbow have held solid ground as a distinctively Hawke’s Bay band although they have achieved a significant national following, having toured widely. They have recorded 3 albums since they formed in 2007 and have toured and featured at many festivals, as well as received significant radio airplay both in NZ and further afield. Their music is rooted in alt-country with a bit of a punk attitude and an occasional garage rock flair. There’s a grittiness to their sounds, but it has the feel not of a big metropolis, but of a wider landscape, small towns and country roads.

With three great musical acts, a bar offering local wines & beer, inexpensive wholesome meals, and the comradery of your local community, this will be a night to gather together and celebrate what is wonderful about Hawke’s Bay.
