In his solo live show Uncle Silverback (aka Gareth Thompson Darling) combines lush layers of trombone with drum breaks lifted from funk records, live bass playing and turntablism to create a fusion of hip hop and jazz unlike anything seen or heard before.

Since arriving in Wellington in late 2010, Uncle Silverback has become a familiar face to local music lovers, tearing up the trombone for Newtown Rocksteady, Niko Ne Zna, Brockaflower and Tāwhiri Funk. His turntable skills and sizeable collection of funk and hip hop records have also scored him regular DJ sets all over town.

Wellington Jazz Festival is on from June 7-11.
