The Nairobi Trio Concert Tour 2006

The Nairobi Trio Concert Tour 2006

The Nairobi Trio Concert Tour 2006 sees the group performing as a quintet on
an extensive itinerary covering most parts of the country; playing both large and small centres.

This is the 17th year that the Nairobi Trio have been together and since their inception in 1989, they have become New Zealand's favourite Jazz entertainers; touring the world - appearing at major festivals throughout U.K., Europe, Australia and Asia.

The show features material spanning the groups career to date from their eight CDs, with the highlight being material from their latest CD, entitled “Collection” – this is definitive Nairobi trio repertoire – a mixture of skilfully crafted original pieces and Jazz favourites, all featuring the distinctive sound and delivery which is the hallmark of the Nairobi Trio.

"This is a group of exciting performers who are talented musicians and entertainers and it is easy to see why they have impressed audiences around the world. Always playing to the crowd, Nairobi Trio have a winning formula and had the crowd hooked from the start"

– Simon Sweetman, The Dominion, June 2002

This is a fantastic opportunity to see this world class group in action in New Zealand.
