Nominated for the Billy T Award, he has sold out shows in the New Zealand International Comedy Festival and performed across the country with his brand of outrageous one-liners, deadpan delivery and confident awkwardness.
And Ben is not bad either..

Sea Mouse. The band you can’t quite pigeonhole is heading out on a hefty summer circuit starting off in Wellington and eventuating in… Wellington...
Seamus Johnson, vocalist and front-man writes with a punishing force and unrelenting vigor, delivering a punch packing and viciously high energy live shows, and brilliant translation of the record from turntable to stage.
“The album is the live show. It’s not the other way around with us like it usually is.. Band records album, band tours album etc. This albums recorded after working these songs out live. We know people react to these songs, it’s just time to share it with more people..”
Grouping in the first release of the album ‘Rutherfords’ and you’ve got the vibe of the album.
Expansive & edgy with a soft side and there’s some kickers to come..
The 11 track album ‘Tropical Fish’ releases Jan 31st on all platforms (watch out for the physical).

RAW COMEDY QUEST
Recently crowned West Australian Music’s Best Regional Act 2019, the Fluid-Groove collab from Margaret River is powering into the new year with their new single “Golden”.
Set for release January 17th, the track is a quick follow up to the release of the group’s third documentary, titled “The Art Of Sound” in November, and paves the way for the release of two more singles and their fifth studio album later this year.
Written on a Mt Maunganui sunrise while on tour in New Zealand, “Golden” sees Blue Child Collective exploring new sounds, blending elements of indie folk and roots to produce a track in a similar vein to “Crosses” by Jose Gonzalez and Bon Iver’s smash hit “Holocene”, yet featuring a solid percussion bed, baritone vocals and clever group singalong.
Returning to Napier to share the track plus plenty of new music, expect intricate fingerstyle grooves, soaring harmonies, thoughtful lyrics and many a good laugh in an engaging performance promoting a Culture Of Connection.
** Tickets limited, ON SALE NOW **
** Support from Emjay Angeni ***

BLUE CHILD COLLECTIVE
Mind-blowing San Diego garage funk leviathan The Schizophonics are back with a hot new album ('People in the Sky') and a massive tour of some lovely Aotearoa venues. It’s like… So… Ok, imagine the MC5 went to a bowling club and ended up going head to head with The Meters but then it ended in a draw and they all went dancing. Or James Brown went shopping but the shoes he bought were too small so he gave them to ol’ mate Jimi Hendrix who was so chuffed he bought them both tickets to a Stooges concert. Imagine that but louder and you’ve got The Schizophonics. All gyrating, all groovin’, all rock ‘n’ roll!
