Adults vs orchestra
This cool gig is happening 30th January, featuring material off The Adults debut album, and some new pieces - maybe Shayne Carter might preview something off his forthcoming piano-based album... go on, Shayne! When you gonna get another chance to rock out with an orchestra, bro?
Adults meet the APO
Conductor Hamish McKeich; The Adults - Jon Toogood, Julia Deans, Shayne Carter and Steve Bremner, plus Ladi6 and Anika Moa.
"New Zealand supergroup The Adults, led by Shihad bandleader Jon Toogood and featuring Julia Deans from Fur Patrol, are no strangers to collaboration. In this innovative concert in the new acoustics of the Aotea Centre, The Adults join ranks with the APO, adding the power of orchestration to their unmistakable sound.
Alongside hits including ‘Nothing to Lose’, 'A Part of Me' and ‘One Million Ways’, The Adults present new ensemble pieces accompanied by full orchestra, with special guest appearances by Anika Moa and Ladi6.
From meditative and melodic to high-octane drama, this meld of band plus orchestra brings you contemporary New Zealand music at its best."
