 Friday 17th March 2017


Our guest this month is

Nigel Gavin

and friends




If you’ve already witnessed one of Nigel Gavin's virtuoso performances then you’ll need no persuading to see him again at Rafters on Friday 17th March. Nigel has been described as “one of New Zealand’s musical treasures" (Tauranga Weekend Sun) and Nick Bollinger has waxed lyrical saying that “his hands seem to be wired to an imagination that never goes blank. Gavin’s guitar is ringing with ideas and to simply sit back and soak them up is unalloyed pleasure”. His style ranges from Jazz to Blues to Folk to Classical: a master of many genres. Along with the extra bonus of his talented friends what better way could there be to you start your weekend. 


The first half of the evening brings musicians old and new to warm us up before supper and our main guests. You will need to be there well before the 8pm start if you want to  perform as there are limited places.


See you there.
