Gig Information

Digable Planets, the seminal alternative hip-hop trio comprised of Mary Ann ‘Ladybug Mecca’ Vieira, Craig ‘Doodlebug’ Irving and Ishmael ‘Butterfly’ Butler have finally reunited and performing for the first time EVER in New Zealand backed by a full rhythm section!

The group’s debut album “Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space)” was released in 1993 under Pendulum Record, with lead single ‘Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)’ becoming a crossover Top 20 billboard hit, earning gold certification by the RIAA and winning a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Following on the success of their first record, “Blowout Comb” was released in 1994 becoming another instant classic.

Digable Planet’s fusion of Jazz and Hip Hop broadened Hip Hop’s reach and expanded its connection to music history, African American culture and the sounds of the streets. Both LPs are proven Hip Hop classics thriving on listeners’ ability to relate, think, feel and be inspired.

A very rare occasion to witness the full band in action on our shores, this concert is not to miss for the old heads, the new heads and all that share a love for Hip Hop and Jazz.
