While About Time is a Jazz Trio based in Whangarei Northland we are a band for hire for weddings and garden gigs around Auckland.
Check out a few short sound clips on our YouTube profile... JazzTrioNZ.
When you hear them you know the musicians working in this jazz trio are accomplished at many styles of music.
"We just happen to love jazz and really enjoy playing off each other. We have other larger band gigs going but love the space a jazz trio affords - space for the listener as well as the musician. Space means responsibility along with freedom to express ourselves and play with structure, time and themes. It's jazz, after all"!
Keyboards and horns (trumpet and flugelhorn) is Matt Watson, bass is John Fraser with soft boom and bash by Matt Hennessy.
About Time is three accomplished musos - two Matt's and a John. We like to have fun. Being white guys we didn't think the name Jo-Ma-Ma would make sense, nor, Ma-ma-jo. So we're About Time.
Available for Northland Auckland gigs at reasonable rates. We're pro musicians who show up on time, communicate quickly and deliver New York style modern interesting jazz the audience loves.
We're a band for hire for weddings, garden parties, evening parties, whenever you want tasty sophisticated jazz that creates a party atmosphere without dominating the scene.
Ring Matt Hennessy the drummer, to discuss your ideas. To book we require a deposit, a partial prepayment before the gig and final payment when we set up. Like we said, all very professional for a pleasureable music experience.
