Further info:

Alpha Art Gallery is up and running, but we are fund raising to further our capacity to offer workshops, increase our accessibility to the wider community, and extend opening hours. The will also compliment the work that is being done in Alpha Art Studio, which is part of a vocational base run through IDEA Service. The bands and the audience are all inclusive of people with and without intellectual disabilities, all partying together!

Mr. Handsome are a 60s/70s/80s covers band, based around a drummer named Duncan Armstrong who won the Arts Access Aotearoa’s Big ‘A’ Winton and Margaret Bear Young Artist Award in 2010.

Sendam Rawkustra are a drum group that includes people with intellectual disabilities and consumers of mental health services. Always a favourite at Newtown Festival, and their debut CD “Greatest Hits! Who's Mad?” made mention in metro magazine for album's of the year 2013.

The Balkanistas are a giant gypsy band, who won a spot at WOMAD this year. Led by percussionist Andreas Lepper, they play infectious dance music like you would not believe.

The Melting Faces play epic, psychedelic, heavy blues rock, soaked in delay and trippiness with a couple shots of folk and funk to wash it down. They also have a new EP hot off the press.
