Paul Van Ross 2013 album launch New Zealand tour

Amazing start to “The buck stops here tour”….

Murphy’s law came into play with the hotel accommodation thinking that 2 could share one bed…..

Anyway….

Radio interview at RNZ then a Sensational first gig at the Auckland Creative Jazz Collective….

Many hands on deck to help load the Hammond B3, a wonderful welcoming atmosphere set the tone for optimum musical creativity with Alan Brown & Mark Lockett.

Many thanks to the incomparable Roger Manins & Caroline Moon.

Rained out & moved out gig at Melbourne festival

Melbourne’s typical weather took control of the Frankston Ventana street Fiesta this weekend.

Was looking forward to playing with ‘Santiago Son’ lead by Great Cuban singer/entertainer Jose Rodriguez.
A torrential downpour prior to the gig left organisers with no choice but to close the main stage due to health and safety. I arrived to find everybody packing up.

Luckily organisers had a groovy downstairs bar around the corner where the band could play. We had an attentive audience and were also entertained by some Tango dancers.

Great result saving a rained out festival into a cool gig.
