How lucky are we!? - Wellington New Year's Eve

How lucky are we!?

Tomorrow night - wearing the Wellington Waterfront as a backdrop, we get to play to you across Whairepo Lagoon. (Yep, Frank Kitts Park stingray pond) Thats a bit lucky, eh! Come and join us from 8pm to 10pm, (with a wee break at 9 for the kids countdown.)

Orchestra Wellington steps in from 10pm with stadium hits, right up until the fireworks and “big kids” countdown. Blimmin’ heck! Might be the place to be! #SummerCity #WCC #ChameleonEvents

You know something? Getting this gig was a genuine surprise - and it has been a delight getting ready for it... Choosing the songs, the bling, the outtakes(!); practicing with this luvverly bunch; lassoing the nerves and the energy.

We look forward to sharing your beautiful lounge with you, Wellington.

Oh, and ... Thanks multiverse!
