Hamilton Jazz Society (Inc) Presents Slippery Noodle and Mark Taipari

Hamilton Jazz Society presents in concert Slippery Noodle, with supporting artist Mark Taipari on Sunday 24th September, 4.30 -7.30pm, at the Waikato Commerce Club, 197 Collingwood Street, Hamilton Central.

Slippery Noodle fuse jazz, Latin, funk and soul to forge their own exciting brand of world music. The trio combines musicians of three nationalities. On bass guitar and vocals is Carlos Pla (Uruguay), on drums, percussion and tenor saxophone Nathan Koretz (New Zealand) and on guitar and vocals Lott Larsson (USA). The sound is undeniable chemistry. From an opening set of classic jazz featuring tenor saxophone, to a bracket of creative original material, the rhythm section lays down a platform of infectious groove, while Lott Larsson weaves inspired guitar melodies.
Featuring both Spanish and English lyrics in vocal harmony and combined with colourful interplay and improv, the band takes the audience into the zone, where they experience real-time composition before their very eyes!
Wonderfully entertaining, Slippery Noodle enriches any concert or event with musical vitality.

Mark Taipari, who charmed us with his guitarmanship and vocals in April, returns as our supporting artist this month.
Mark, a talented and experienced Kiwi musician, has delivered classy and relaxed performances for literally hundreds of functions over 30 years in the music industry. We look forward to hearing his relaxed style of blues and jazz again.

Do join us; it is a great way to relax and unwind at the end of the weekend.

Meals and beverages are available for purchase from the Club.
