Gig Information

Kia Ora Paeroa :)

Cricket Farm are touring this summer in support of our debut album 'Bending Spoons', and we're stoked to be playing at The Refinery! We'll be joined by Refinery favourites Aro, who you know and love. Come and let us sing you into the weekend.

Cricket Farm are a three-piece indie-folk/gypsy act hailing from Auckland, New Zealand.
Since their formation in 2016 they have won the hearts of audiences with their quaint and sunny sound, which combines elements of indie-folk and gypsy jazz with all the raw honesty of punk. Or as the band describes it “music for hopeless romantic conspiracy theorists.”

Cricket Farm is made up of multidisciplinary artist Hayley Robertson, Sims Ross (Yebisu, The Murderchord) and Joel Vinsen (Callum Gentleman, Ijebu Pleasure Club, Panhandlers).

'Hard truths sung in a soft voice, accompanied by plucky Chet Atkins inspired nylon string guitar and ukulele, and coloured with clarinet, acoustic gypsy jazz guitar & weird buzzy electric guitar'.

'I cried three times' - sad/happy punter.

Cricket Farm sing so sweetly but then there are these intense lyrics. And their dynamic on stage is magic. It’s just really good. No really. I’m serious. It is really just very good. - Rohan Evans (Wine Cellar)

One of the best shows & audience rapport I’ve seen here; reminds me of the Nukes. - Audience member at Eggsentric Cafe Whitianga

What the f*** is that instrument the singer played and rapped to' that is the singularly most brilliant performance of a piece of music by one person that I've seen in a long time! crazy great. - Dave Alley

Sounds like Django Reinhardt, but with more arms. - Will Saunders
Aro are an amalgamation of stories in song expressing the people, the culture and the land of Aotearoa.
Love defines this soul-pop, husband & wife duo, and harmony is their signature.
