Wellington Jazz Festival: Sal Valentine and The Babyshakes

Sat Jun 10th, 2017

Doors open: 9:00pm
Gig starts: 10:30pm
Entry: R18

Cover charge: $5

Widely regarded as one of the finest acts in the country, Sal Valentine and The Babyshakes are a ten piece ensemble dedicated to the performance of their lead singer's originally-penned rhythm and soul repertoire. Essentially the AC/DC of jazz, the band sets the bar for thrilling, inspired live performance. Since the release of their top-ten charting debut album, The Babyshakes have indulged audiences at Camp a Low Hum, On The Lawn, Chronophonium, Splore and a packed-out Matterhorn for Jazz Festival 2016.

The band released their eponymous debut at the end of 2013 to rapturous applause from critics and fans alike. The debut album, recorded by Bob Frisbee (Street Chant, Panther and the Zoo, Rackets, Beach Pigs), presents the band in an honest setting, capturing the sound of the band and the energy of the live performances.

If you were there last year, you know what's in store. If not, be sure not to miss them.

Doors from 9pm, Show at 11. $5 on the door.
