The Wellington City Shake-'Em-On-Downers, that New Orleans-inflected dadaist jazz disaster are thrilled to play their first ever show in the fair city of Gisborne.

The Shake-'Ems are a septet of the capital’s most danceable degenerates who have brought the traditional music of New Orleans and early jazz to the shores of our fine isles since 2011. They dreamed up the band name before anyone considered how hard it would be to remember. They have survived minor car accidents and major food poisoning incidents to perform on stages throughout the country, including the Waiheke International Jazz Festival, Toast Martinborough, World of WearableArt, and TV3's Seven Days. Performing energetic interpretations of standards from the classic American songbook as well as similarly inspired original compositions, the Shake-’Ems will serve you up a spicy jambalaya full of mystery meat.
