Knees up at the Winchester featuring Night Gaunts, Acetones, Rocksteady Allstars & Earthtone Hifi
You will be sufficiently entertained by this lot:
MOISTY ATSUSHI'S ROCKSTEADY ALLSTARS
Night Gaunts hail from North Shore City and bring you a brand of high energy, sing-a-long ska, reggae, hip-hop that will imbed itself into your brain from the moment they hit your ears.
Night Gaunts live show is something to be remembered with an almost direct, if not better, recreation of their first full length album "Full Body Tourettes [Pt II]." Synths, organs, samples, sax and piano are the sparkling features on top of an already immense sounding rhythm section, leaving the audience to remark "That's the best f**king band I've seen in years!"
Check them out online as they give away all their music for free. For free you say?! Hell, you could even donate a few dollars to 'em for doing that!
Members of AceTones have a long standing love affair with Jamaican music and its offshoots. Having cut their teeth in the NZ ska and reggae scene performing in bands such as Skatilator, The Managers, Roofdog, Skaface Claw, Earthtone Rockers, and Moisty Atsushi’s Rocksteady Allstars, the band members combine a wealth of experience with a fresh and unique approach. AceTones infuse the irresistible grooves of Jamaican music with their own distinctive style.
AceTones are purveyors of fine Jamaican music styles, from 60’s ska and rocksteady to reggae and dub. Paying tribute to the greats, this four-piece instrumental band draws inspiration from founders of the styles such as Skatallites, The Upsetters, Jackie Mittoo, Sly and Robbie and more. AceTones offer a superlative selection of time-honoured classics, rare grooves and originals to satisfy connoisseurs and new listeners alike.
