The Wellington Mingus Ensemble

Not 1, not 2…..not 10, but 16 of Wellingtons finest jazz exponents have been thrown together to create a huge celebration of Charles Mingus’ music in a 16 piece big band!  This heavy-hitting big band of top Wellington musicians plays the music of its namesake Charles Mingus, one of the most revered names in Black American Music, Blues and political art. Ragingly charismatic melodies meet dense impressionistic orchestration and deep blues language in some of the most stunning compositions of the last century – don’t miss out!
$10 or $5 for students from Eventfinda or on the door.

Rogue & Vagabond

A great little bar with an outlook over Glover Park. No TVs, just craft beer, live music, pizza and a relaxed environment.
