Gig Information


The return of Waiheke Islands local voodoo blues rock'n'roller's The Solomon Cole Band, kicking off their summer jaunt with a bang at Waiheke's Artwork Theatre! Their summer stops also include ( Coroglen Tavern, SPLORE, The Powerstation w/Marcus King, Waiheke Jazz-fest and much more) but the quartet will launch SAT JAN 16TH with none other than NZ's award winning songwriter Jan Hellriegel & local folk artist Tommy Pickett in support.

Evoking the dark folklore of Tom Waits, The Solomon Cole Band sound marries the blues effigies of Son House, R L Burnside, embraces the spirit of Howlin' Wolf - all the while delivering it with the rock'n'roll swagger of a Black Keys / voodoo inspired mardi gras for the lonesome and downtrodden.

The ultimate alt-blues crossover act, The Solomon Cole Band have opened for Martha Davis & The Motels (US), My Baby (Europe), The Animals (UK) and The Supersuckers (US). Solomon Cole was also selected to open for The Marcus King Band (US) in 2020, as part of King's planned tour of Australia and New Zealand.


In support of the release of her new multi media project Sportsman of the Year - A Suburban Philosophy, for the first time in a very long time award winning songwriter Jan Hellriegel is embarking on a New Zealand tour and is finally getting to Waiheke after a year of weird custard!

An uplifting evening of songs, stories, Q & A's and suburban philosophy from New Zealand singer, songwriter, music publisher, author and positivity-personified, Jan Hellriegel.

An evening of songs, stories and humour. As well as a Q & A session on the book “Sportsman Of The Year - A Suburban Philosophy” with Jan Hellriegel.

Jan will be accompanied by Ben King ( Golden Horse), Mark Hughes and Mike Burrows

Also appearing too warm up the first part of the evening is local folk artist Tommy Pickett.
