Julie Lamb Outfit South Island Tour


Lyttelton Records Thursday 13 September ($10 presales)

Dawsons Hotel Reefton Friday 13 Saturday 15 2018

The Mussel Inn 15 Saturday September 2018

Julie Lamb has gathered a tight knit flock of musical talent around her, to form the new touring 8-piece outfit ‘JL08’. Featuring exuberant backing vocals, and funky horns laid over a cranking band, the result is a high impact – all smiles – funky pop-rock vibe.

A three-stop mini tour is scheduled for September at some classic and beloved South Island Venues. They stop off at Lyttelton Records, Dawson’s Hotel Reefton and they are the Mussel Inn’s first billing of the new season.

JL08 are touring in support of their charting album of originals “Ordinary Days”, but will be playing from across their full back catalogue.

Frontwoman Julie Lamb is an accountant by occupation, musician by pre-occupation. “The accounting business is a beige front for the amazing, colourful talent the Julie Lamb Outfit contains. We are proud of the crafting in our stories, and pleased as punch that those stories have attracted such a following.” says Julie. So what can you expect from the show? “Our gigs end with everyone up on the dance floor, boogying!”

“It’s great to hear some funky pop-rock with good old fashioned backing vocals and horn parts too. A class act made all the better by the joi-de-vivre it encapsulates and projects" - Bing Turkby NZ Music Magazine.

The show has broad appeal. “There is no typical audience member” says Julie “If you love funky-pop with a bluesy bent then you’ll have a great night out.”

Earlybird Tickets are now on sale for the Christchurch show and are available at Eventfinda. There is no charge at Dawson’s Reefton or Mussel Inn.
