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.
