Adam Page - The wizard of live-looping returns to Wanaka

Adam Page - The wizard of live-looping returns to Wanaka



Talented multi-instrumentalist Adam Page and his characteristic gigantic beard, returns to Wanaka after a sell-out show at last year’s Festival of Colour. Adam is here for a week running workshops in schools in the area and then finishing the week with three special performances that are bound to sell out.

Adam had his own late night show in the Central Lakes Trust Crystal Palace in the festival last year, and also appeared on stage with many of the other perfomers. He ran a series of workshops in schools that were a huge hit wth the local school children.

First up he’s a saxophone player but the instruments he loops are as diverse as the bass, banjo, clarinet and didgeridoo, in styles ranging from funk and tango to classical, jazz and afrobeat.

His beat boxing, his high energy, sense of fun and fantastic music, make for an unforgettable performance that will appeal to all ages.


Friday 28th February - Hawea Flat Hall at 7pm
Saturday March 1st – Wanaka Masonic Lodge – 6pm family show and late show at 9pm.
All performances will be 70 minutes long with no interval, and are suitable for all ages.

Book now - Tickets $20 adult and $10 school students – do book early as we expect demand to be very high. Book online and then choose to either print at home or collect at the venue.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
