... and our musicians for the afternoon

| CLUB MANOUCHE | 4pm-5pm

 

The band was formed in 2006 by Parisian firebrand guitarist Jean Pierre Druinaud who on his arrival from Tahiti to Auckland teamed up with Jez Jeremy Titterton “Le Voleur” and Pierre La Bouche on bass to impart the Manouche message. Club meetings frequently taking place on the streets of Auckland were started with an open invitation to all those interested in playing Gypsy Jazz. Accordionists Jambon Denham and Hershall  played alongside violinist James Le Prof Sneyd. The band finally gelled with the arrival of La Pompe Stephan Sherry in 2009 then come the decade guitarist Misha the Haemophilliac adds bleeding to the bands line up while guitarist Miro Duna playing violin, guitar and piano is the genuine Roma element.


| JU DECANINE | 5pm-6.30pm

 

Ju Decanine is a Brazilian DJ, one of the two members of the project PJrocks, and her style was built upon synthpop, nu disco, indie rock and electro rock. Before changing Brazil for New Zealand, she has played in the best clubs in São Paulo.
