The Andrew London Trio at The Laboratory on Labour Day, Monday 23 October, 7pm Kapiti songwriter and recording artist Andrew London will be touring with his ‘Andrew London Trio’ throughout October and giving a special performance at The Laboratory on Labour Day, Monday 23 October. Carrying on the tradition of Hot Club Sandwich, The Andrew London Trio offers songs about the trivia and minutiae of daily life from the point of view of a middle-aged, middle-class, Middle Earther, delivered in a deceptively innocuous 1940s swing style with occasional forays into folk, blues, country and hip-hop. Hot Club Sandwich eventually recorded nine albums, mostly of London’s original songs, and travelled as far as Australia, Norfolk Island and Saudi Arabia to perform. The obvious opportunity for humour is eagerly seized upon and exploited mercilessly, but occasional poignancy and pathos are never far away. Beatle-esque vocal harmonies are added by Kirsten London on bass and ex-HCS sax/clarinetist Nils Olsen. The Laboratory is opening especially on Labour Day (when normally closed) so the whole venue will be given over to this fantastic event. Doors open at 5.30pm and the show starts at 7.00pm. The bar will be open with a delicious menu available on the night. Tickets are $15 and available over the bar or call 325 3006. Look forward to more superb performances at ticketed events at The Laboratory through the coming months. Check out our website for these and other great community events at The Laboratory
