PRESS RELEASE: Joint Statement on the Proposed Auckland Council Funding Cuts to Devonport-Takapuna Local Board
At a recent meeting of leaders of local Devonport organisations there was unanimous concern at the proposed Auckland Council budget cuts.
To celebrate New Zealand Music Month Depot Sound has recorded six artists performing live in the studio. Each artist has their own video with an interview and live performance.
Come along to the Seen & Heard exhibition opening at Depot Artspace on Saturday April 30th for an exclusive premier or check them out on our web site, Facebook and Youtube channels in May.
The videos showcase a small selection of the diverse mix of musicians who pass through Depot Sound and the enormous talent of both well known and emerging artists in New Zealand.
Brendon Thomas and the Vibes cruise through an intimate set of bluesy original music. All girl punk band Blue Ruin perform a blistering set of energetic rock tunes. Veteran performers Hamilton County Bluegrass Band deliver their fun, harmony filled, Kiwi take on bluegrass. Average Mars Experience play a precise riff laden set of instrumental progressive rock. Our only solo acoustic performance is from sweet sounding 16 year old songwriter Sophie Mashlan, and after interviewing all the bands your host Swizl Jager also performs a set of his own unique style of Hip Hop, mixing classic Kiwiana themes performed in Te Reo and English.
