The Jazz Club
Featuring ‘Liquid Honey’
with Nicola Rouse (Piano/Vocals), Archie Grayson (Drums)
& Victoria Landgraf (Bass)
The Turner Centre Kerikeri presents another night of top International Jazz Sounds. Our Jazz Club is very excited to present ‘Liquid Honey’ for a night of cool jazz.
Nicola Rouse (Piano/vocals)
New Zealand born jazz pianist/singer, Nicola Rouse is a very experienced musician who has performed extensively throughout New Zealand, Asia and the USA. When Nicola turned 24 she moved to Australia to begin a musical journey that included Sydney, Malaysia, Cambodia, Shanghai, Singapore, Washington DC and Chicago.
Nicola has performed with some of New Zealand’s top musicians as well as internationally recognised jazz/blues musicians. She has performed on piano and sung at 5 & 6 star hotels such as The Ritz-Carlton in Shanghai, The Inter-Continental and The Hilton in Singapore. She returned home in 2007 and has made her home here in Kerikeri.
Her influences include Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Nina Simone and Diana Krall.
He has recorded at the BBC, and also played drums on the Inkspots Northern tour.
Victoria Landgraf (Bass)
Victoria grew up in a musical household, started piano lessons at a young age, played cello in the Cleveland Institute of Music Youth Orchestra, and took up the bass in the normal way when a friend’s band needed a bass player. In addition to performing with Nicola in Liquid Honey, she appears regularly around Northland with Thelonious Punk.
Our chef tonight James Coleman of The Fig Café will be providing an exciting menu of tapas options. James and family moved up to Kerikeri in 2000 and owned the Rocket Café for 5 years, then became the head chef for Marsden Estate and recently runs The Fig Café in Kerikeri. The food is wonderful and will add to the night’s atmosphere of Jazz and good food.
Bar opens on Friday, 28th April at 5.30pm with Live Jazz from 6.00pm. See you there!
