ABOUT THE BANDS

FLY MY PRETTIES
Once again, ring-leader Barnaby Weir will be assembling some of New Zealand’s finest musicians with a 15 strong stellar cast performing all the fan favorites from their five albums as well as new songs from a couple of surprise additions to the line up.

Fly My Pretties have always sought to showcase the best talent and musical diversity that New Zealand has to offer and their Music at Matua performance will be a true celebration of this rich heritage and tradition.

Since its inception, Fly My Pretties has grown to become a local legend of music that continues to reach people all over the world. The focus is on original music and artistic collaboration, but the surrounding themes and aesthetics have made it much more of an experience than just a concert.

ESTÈRE
Estère is a girl with an MPC she calls Lola. She produces all her own songs with Lola. Estère plays/records a mixture of bass, synth, drums, guitar, vocal harmonies, keyboard, whistles, claps, kazoo, desk tapping and anything else that might take her fancy then layers her production with pulsating rhythms and evocative melodies that adhere to the genre of electric blue witch hop.

Since obtaining Lola in March 2012, Estère has played a large variety of live performances in cities and festivals throughout New Zealand, Australia and Europe. While in NZ Estere has opened for a variety of international artists, including Erykah Badu, Morcheeba and KT Tunstall.

THE NUDGE
The Nudge have been forming their genre crossing sound over the last 5 years and honing it to multi genre perfection. Formed initially from Ryan Prebble and with the addition of James Coyle and Iraia Whakamoe, The Nudge has come to find their sound far more psychedelic and hypnotic. The Nudge is best seen live and left for the individual to find what they call home. One thing is for sure, no matter who you are this act is not to be missed as one you will find something inside The Nudge that will make you feel alive.
