Rafters Music Club
Held at The Unitarian Church 1a Ponsonby Road on the third Friday of each month
Friday 16th February 2018 at 8pm
This month we welcome one of our regular performers Lloyd Wheeler treating us to more than his mandolin playing by adding an acoustic/electric jazz guitar to his repertoire! He will be joined by Conni Ruff on guitar and Blues harp. Together they form ACOUSTIC ALCHEMY and, working on the principle that variety is the spice of life, their performance will include bluegrass, ragtime pieces, country and smooth jazz instrumentals. Come join us for "a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination"* of musical talents.

The first half of our evening brings musicians old and new to warm us up before supper and our main guests. We welcome new performers. See Graham at the door if you want to perform, but you will need to be there before the 8pm start.
Photos and Videos
Photos and some videos of performances will be taken during the evening and displayed on our Facebook page. We also have a Rafters Music Club Youtube channel where we display some videos (type Rafters Music Club into Youtube search to find these videos). Please see Linda if you do not want your images publically available.
If you are attending the Auckland Folk Festival at the Kumeu Showgrounds over Auckland Anniversary Weekend (January 26th to 28th) come over to the Rafters Tent and say hi and join us in a jam.
