Nathan Haines & The Dream Band with Rikky Gooch

Happy are thrilled to be hosting Nathan Haines and the Dream Band next Saturday night (September 25th). Nathan and Band will be supported by Rikky Gooch.

As it is a strictly limited capacity, we strongly advise securing presales for this show, which are available HERE.

Nathan Haines hits the road in September for an all new musical journey covering dirty funk, soul, jazz and psychedelic rock. The aptly titled "Dream Band" features guitar legend Joel Haines, plus members of Nathan's latest line-up featured on the critically acclaimed new album on Warners, "Heaven and Earth".
The band recently played the main stage at Java Jazz Festival in Indonesia and Nathan played at The Rooms in Tokyo just last month, so expect to see and hear a band at its artistic and improvisatory peak.

Harking back to Nathan's club days in London where he ran his own successful club night for four years (The Nottinghill Arts Club), this latest tour will see a mix of Nathan's DJ sets with a two hour long band set. The emphasis will be on danceable grooves for those who like their music funky and cutting edge.

"Heaven and Earth”, Nathan's seventh studio album, is a distillation of his 25 years in the game, which has seen him master an incredible number of genres including drum and bass, broken beat, house and jazz electronic. He's even made an album with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, as well as guesting on international albums including Jamiroquai and New York dance legends Masters at Work.
October will see Nathan head back to the UK for tours including Italy and the UK, so don’t miss your chance to see one of New Zealand's most iconic and ground breaking musicians backed by the best that New Zealand has to offer.
