'Night Garden'

We have always strived to do something different, and bring more energy to our shows to give something more to the audience.

It is important for us to create an experience filled with good vibes, education, and memories, to provide a tangible connection to the people through music and atmosphere. Welcome to the Night Garden.

Branched off Room One, the Night Garden provides a showcase freedom of style and diverse music flavour.

We are very excited to present our third instalment of the Night Garden.

We where so blown away by his last set here in New Zealand we had to get him back for another.

For your enjoyment, we present...


Motez grew up in Baghdad, Iraq, where he learned to play the piano and soon graduated to making his own music. In 2000, as unrest in Baghdad intensified under Saddamís Husseinís rule, Motezís father took the treacherous journey by boat to Australia to establish a new life for the Obaidi family.

Way back before Motez was making bangers and rocking festivals, he was getting some classical piano know how and its these skills that he flexes on Own Up. Clearly influenced by the 90's, Own Up is a fresh and revitalized update rather than pastiche but not only this, in a nice twist, it still manages to sound like it came from the guy that made Roof Ride Back.

Believe the hype.
