The Small Hall Sessions bring HB Music Month to Maraekakaho

64 Kereru Road, Maraekakaho, Hastings

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

Starting the night will be Jackson Plumpton, fresh from gaining a degree in music, with songs that blend folk, indie-rock and pop, he’s an exciting emerging artist.

James ‘JR’ Rochester is co owner of the beloved Paisley Stage in Napier, and one of the most devoted and supportive member’s of HB’s music scene. Sound engineer, guitar repairer and technician and highly accomplished songwriter and guitarist, it will be a treat to hear him solo, shining a light on his own songs.
Dusty Rhodes and the Bluesmobile have been touring New Zealand for nearly thirty years. Loved for the integrity and vibrancy of their live shows, they are considered one of NZ’s great blues bands. With original members Dusty Rhodes and Tim Walton and drummer Dennis Maunder (a veritable new-comer, having only joined them six years ago) this three piece will fill the hall with their energy, drive and passion for the Blues.

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.
