The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band are bringing their New Orleans ragtime throw-back show to the Kapiti Coast for one night only!
We'll be playing at Paekakariki's iconic St. Peter's Hall for what is the first in a series of community hall gigs. Having recently played a sell-out show at The San Fransisco Bath house in May, we're keen to get on the road and take our sounds to the coast!
Band will be on at 9pm. Be sure to bring your dancing shoes and a few friends, it's gonna be a great night!
There will be CDs available for purchase too.
"In the melting pot of turn of the century New Orleans, jazz, the blues and ragtime was the music for every occasion and station in life - from christening parties to funeral parades and every liquor-fuelled dance floor in between. Wellington’s Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band specialise in this hypnotic and irresistible musical force of nature that pulls heartstrings, shakes booties and stomps feet”. - (T. Rodwell)
Hailing from the windy city, Wellington, New Zealand, the Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band was formed in 2011 by Dayle Jellyman and Mike Jensen. Paying dues to legendary musician, Louis Armstrong and the New Orleans’ jazz and blues tradition from the early 1900’s, the Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band bring back to life the music that filled the saloons, brothels, sporting houses and juice joints of this bygone era.
The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band is all about playing music that gets people up and moving, don’t look for fancy solos here, but make sure you bring your dancing shoes with you!
Having started out playing traditional tunes and arrangements of common ragtime and early jazz standards, they’ve moved towards playing entirely original music, serving up their our own version of gumbo, cornbread and collared greens, Roseneath style!
The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band is:
Mike Jensen (trap drums, vocals);
Dayle Jellyman (piano, vocals);
Dan Yeabsley (upright bass);
Hamish Jellyman (trombone);
Adrian Jensen (guitar);
Matt Enright (trumpet, vocals);
Frankie Curac (clarinet, vocals).
Look forward to seeing you there!
