The Grasshopper Presents
Great local talent on stage for this night of original acoustic material. Come check out some of Wellington's undiscovered musical gems in the relaxed and fun atmosphere at Happy.
Richard Prowse is a double bass soloist who plays improvised jazz standards, world music and original pieces. He achieves a cello like sound with the bow and his unaccompanied pieces have quite a unique sound.
Karen Jaine brings to the stage a set of acoustic melodic songs with heartfelt emotive lyrics, instrumented with a sultry powerful voice her mix of country folk pop will have your toes tapping and your hearts breaking.
Tom Martin plays folk sounds with rock and roll influences set to songs of yearning and tall tales. Love of telling stories and creating personal mythologies blends into acoustic balladeering. Shades of Dylan, Lou Reed, Neil Young and randomness. Jumps around a lot.
Joseph Jujnovich plays funky, quirky pop fused with rap/spoken word and performance poetry. He loves to tell stories and rock the stage with his twelve string guitar.
