So this Friday in Wellington at The San Francisco Bath House a musical extravaganza is going to happen. The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band and Richter City Rebels have teamed up to become one mega super band! I am actually beside myself with joy for this gig. Its going to be full of wonderous toe tapping bum wiggling music. And beards. Ok so maybe just a few but they will be mighty!
Madame Fancy Pants is lucky enough to have 2 double passes to give away and....yes AND a cd from each of The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band and Richter City Rebels for the lucky 2 winners.
How do I win you say? well you just need to leave a comment here telling us your favourite style of moustache/beard and why and we will choose a winner on Friday afternoon. YEAH!
Want to know more about the gig? of course you do.
Here are the details...
The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band and the Richter City Rebels are coming together on May the 25th to set the night alight with high energy sing-a-longs and dance music.
"It's going to be madness - 10 horns, 3 drummers, 16 singers, guitar, upright bass and even an upright piano all on one stage. I've got no idea how we're going to fit!" said Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band pianist, Dayle Jellyman.
The San Francisco Bath House will host this event, which will feature a combined set with both bands onstage at once.
"Both bands play music that is all about getting people up and moving, having a great time, so it feels quite natural for us to be coming together for this show" said Richter City Rebels band leader, Lex French.
Kicking the night off will be the Richter City Rebels and their take on the New Orleans style street beat brass band sound, followed by the RoseneathCentennial Ragtime Band with their 6 part vocals and impeccable dress sense.
Featuring a range of NZ's finest musicians, this show promises to be a night to remember with a mix of original Wellington music and classic New Orleans stomps and swaggers.
