Gig Information

The biggest super-group of NZ musicians to ever hit the stage will be playing at THE TRUSTS ARENA in Auckland this November. The show, MARLEY: CELEBRATE THE LEGEND, is endorsed directly by the Marley family and now features 21 of your favourite kiwi stars playing the hits of Bob Marley. It will be staged for one night only in Auckland on Thursday 30 November.

Support at all shows will be from powerhouse NZ band, L.A.B. The Bay of Plenty four-piece, which includes past members of Kora and Katchafire, have been taking the NZ music scene by storm with their infectious funk reggae vibe and gaining legions of fans at festivals nationwide. This band are incredible live, and their new album is set for release on 24 November with the first single Jimmy Boy out now.

If anyone could bring the KORA brothers together again on stage, it had to be Bob Marley. We are stoked to have all 4 brothers, Laughton, Fran, Brad and Stu Kora reunite for the coming shows in Auckland and Australia. This is the first time the brothers have performed together in over 5 years and will make for a memorable night.

Some of New Zealand’s biggest artists are part of this homage to one of the greatest influences on NZ music. Tiki Taane, Che Fu, Annie Crummer, Laughton Kora, Fran Kora, Logan Bell, Boh Runga, Ria Hall, Anna Coddington and Joel Shadbolt each take the lead vocals in one or more songs including Get Up Stand Up, 3 Little Birds, Stir It Up, Redemption Song, Turn Your Lights Down Low, Buffalo Soldier, Punky Reggae Party, Exodus, No Woman No Cry, One Love and many many more.

They are backed by the amazing NZ All-Stars band, featuring Grenville Bell, guitar, Hani Totorewa, keys and Leon Davy, percussion (past and present members of Katchafire); Fran Kora, bass and vocals (Kora), Brad Kora, drums and percussion (Kora), Stu Kora, guitar and keys (Kora); Ara Adams-Tamatea, bass (L.A.B), Lucien Johnson, sax and Barrett Hocking, trumpet (both from The Black Seeds); Paul Russell, drums (Stomp and Supergroove); Joel Shadbolt, guitar (L.A.B); Shelton Woolright, guest drums (I Am Giant, Blindspott) and Godfrey de Grut, keys (Elemeno P, Che Fu & The Krates), with our very own I-Threes on backing vocals, Boh, Ria and Anna.
