Eclectic original music inspired by jazz, kiwi and Brazilian music styles, all
vying for the listeners attention. It draws on all the musical experiences and styles of music

“Julie plays guitar, beautifully, and her repertoire of instrumentals

“The listener is always engaged and enthralled.”
Sliding smoothly between the trombone, trumpet and the piano chairs, Nick reveals rich harmonic layers in seas of blues, jazz and soul. From mentoring at New Zealand’s finest jazz institutions to playing in orchestras and show bands through to jamming in restaurants and bars the focus is on musical alchemy. By melding lyrical melody within slinky chord structures, Van Dijk shows his ability to charm and relax listeners of all outlooks.
