Buda with Anita Clark
plays Buda

Sat 9 July @ Lyttelton Coffee Co

“Since the release of his 2022 Taite Music Prize nominated album “Buda” in October last year, Luke Buda (Te Whanganui-a-Tara) has been desperate to play some sweet local music for the local crew down at the local bar!

Luke Buda and Ōtautahi Violinist Anita Clark (Motte) head out on an intimate 4 date tour to play the songs from “Buda”, as well as some old The Phoenix Foundation favourites and… if the mood is right: a Roxette cover.

Hollie Smith

Fri 8th July @ The Loons

After almost a year of trying to get this show on the road due to massive COVID hurdles we are finally touring Hollies number one album Coming in From The Dark LIVE!

We cannot wait for you to see the show.
