Press release:

A heavyweight thundercrack band of chch musicians will face down winter using the force of Bruuuuuuuuccccceeee.

Featuring members of The Eastern, The Black Velvet Band, Soulmates, The Haunters and a zillion more, these musicians have devoted all their off time to harness the power, hour after cold dark hour in order to warm you ass up and ensure that the ChCh food bank is well stocked this July!

Christchurch winters are designed to bite you where it hurts, it’s their intrinsic nature, their essential reason for existence. It’s your job to face them down, heat pumps a ‘blazing, fires a ’roaring, layers a ’wrapping and if you dig music then with your ass a ’shakin’. We gotta keep it warm out there!

The music of Bruce Springsteen seems custom built for the later, especially when in true Boss fashion him and his E-Street alumni put it four to the floor and indulge the soul influences so prevalent in theirs and the greater sound of the Jersey Shore.

The name of the game is to hustle you for some canned food to donate to the thinning shelves of CHCH food banks who are doing it more than tough this winter. It’s a warmth for warmth kinda deal. Something in keeping with the spirit of the boss, this bunch of shivering singers and players reckon; freeing your feet for the bar floor but also your generosity for the greater good.

Why not book a table for pre-show dinner, we take reservations in our Back Bar & Diner.

At Blue Smoke we serve great food that can be shared with friends and our bar is stocked with Cassels craft beers, fine NZ wines, a range of top shelf liquors and non-alcoholic beverages.
