The tour follows the recent release of Tami Neilson’s powerful new album SASSAFRASS!

"A fire-breathing R & B belter on her own terms."
- Rolling Stone

“… musical dynamite.”
- Pop Matters

"Soul, country-soul, rockabilly, big band swing , everything serves the extraordinary Tami so that in the end, joy and power are duly shared."

Now just announced, blues-Americana-folk rockers The Miltones will join theSASSAFRASS! tour for four of the shows (Christchurch, Wellington, Hamilton and Auckland). The band’s frontwoman, Milly Tabak, will perform solo at the remaining shows (Nelson, Dunedin, Napier).

The Miltones are an Auckland-based act who have been sending ripples through the Kiwi music scene since their inception in 2014. Their self-titled debut album - recorded in Lyttelton with renowned producer Ben Edwards, who also co-produced SASSAFRASS! - was released in 2017.

The Listener awarded it 4.5/5 and the New Zealand Herald called it “The freshest sound in New Zealand popular music right now”.

The Miltones were also recognised at the 2018 Taite Music Awards, where they received the Auckland Live Best Independent Debut Album award.

The Miltones are also a band that clearly thrives on playing live.

“Their enthusiasm and joy is infectious, sweeping over the crowd as smoothly as their sweet, soulful sounds. This was hands down the most enthusiastic crowd I have seen to date at The Tuning Fork...If there is one band that should feature on your ‘must see’ list, it is The Miltones – they are certainly destined for great things!"
