Coming Events

Frank Burkitt Band

Dates: Thursday 24th Jan

TICKETS $28 from or $25 from Aviary.

The reception The Frank Burkitt Band received when they first played at The Dome back in May 2017 was hard to rival. They cannot wait to try and stir up a similar reaction this time around. One of the most beautiful small venues in Aotearoa, the Dome is bursting with vintage charm and is a perfect setting for The Frank Burkitt Band's smooth delivery, rootsy swing and sharp suits!

Frank is a storyteller, songwriter, singer and guitarist. In that order. His rambling anecdotes aim to give the audience more of a connection with his songs. A folk songwriter at his core, American roots music with hints of jazz, blues and swing very much shape his music. When he relocated to Wellington from Edinburgh with his partner and backing vocalist Kara Filbey, he formed The Frank Burkitt Band, with blues and country mandolin player Cameron Burnell and jazz double bassist James Geluk. This mix of styles and genres gives their show unique variety, alongside tight knit harmonies and well crafted arrangements.

2019 will see The Frank Burkitt Band embark on the longest tour of their lives. From January - June, they intend to take their music all around New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Yes, they are quite ambitious and slightly unhinged. They will be releasing a new live EP to coincide with their touring adventures. They have also been announced as finalists for the NZ Music Award for Best Folk Artist 2019! Tickets are available online at or direct from Aviary at the PBC.


Dates: Sunday 27th Jan

From 6pm in the garden bar with FREE entry - what more could you want!

Weaving all aspects of a small band into a seamless live solo performance, Erinsphere is the loopy brainchild of NZ-born musician Erin, who has been touring the Australasian coastlines for the best part of five years honing her craft and live show.

Progressive, upbeat folk, where dubby, reggae basslines combine with beatboxing and impeccable, synth-style vocal harmonies, Erin's sound and rhythmic groove is inspired by the heavyweights in catchy, conscious music. Using techniques comparable to those of contemporary legends Tash Sultana and Ed Sheeran, the ‘Erinsphere' is essentially about creating something that uplifts and inspires, in a similar way to John Lennon’s “Imagine” or Michael Jackson’s “Heal the World”; layered right in front of your eyes. But you might want to wear your dancing shoes.
