The Datsuns announced to play Music in Parks 2010
The Datsuns, The Warratahs, Jennifer Zea, Clap Clap Riot, Hammond Gamble, Otis Mace and Dimmer are just some of the acts announced for the 2010 Music in Parks season.
This is the 17th year Auckland City Council has produced what is the largest free outdoor music and film series in New Zealand. The 2010 programme runs from January to March and features 40 events in some of Auckland’s most stunning parks and reserves.
Music in Parks is made up of four series, each with its own unique flavour; Summer Sounds features multiple billings of award winning artists offering everything from rock to reggae. Headline acts for 2010 include the The Datsuns, Dimmer, Sweet and Irie and cherished favourites, The Warratahs and Hammond Gamble.
“Currently I am in the icy grip of a chilly European winter,” says The Datsuns guitarist Christian Livingstone. “The thought of playing a show on a hot summer day in the park sounds great to me!”
Jazz at the Rotunda is Auckland’s longest running jazz festival and stages some of the city’s finest jazz musicians. This year’s series boasts 12 weekly jazz concerts set in the historic Auckland Domain Band Rotunda. Featured in the 2010 programme are Lewis McCallum, Jennifer Zea and tribute concerts to Pat Metheney and Russ Garcia .
The Culture Garden series presents a wide range of niche musical genres in Auckland’s most intimate park settings. This is an opportunity to discover new music and relish in the proven talents of Steve Abel, the New Zealand Opera and Forbidden Joe. If dancing is your cup of tea, don’t miss the ever popular ‘Tea Dances’ in March.
Movies in Parks is Auckland’s annual celebration of New Zealand achievement in cinema with a host of kiwi themed flicks. Each event opens with performances by some of Auckland’s hottest up and coming bands such as Collapsing Cities, Sons of Zion and Broken Heartbreakers. Confirmed movies for 2010 include the World’s Fastest Indian, Goodbye Pork Pie and State of Play.
“We’re thrilled to be offering Music In Parks for the 17th year running,” says Councillor Greg Moyle, chairperson of the of the Arts, Culture and Recreation Committee “It’s great to be able to offer Aucklanders the chance to enjoy the wealth of musical and creative talent in this city, in the setting of our beautiful parks and reserves throughout the summer. I hope everyone gets out there to a range of events.”
Music in Parks 2009 is proudly sponsored by Air New Zealand Grab a Seat, The Radio Network, Juice TV, The Lion Foundation with Movies in Parks being sponsored by Wild Bean Café and Mediaworks.
