The Alpaca Social Club hits the NZ tour trail again this summer with fresh sounds from exotic lands with a taste of Arabic, celtic, funk soul and gypsy jazz cultures.
The two musicians at its core are piano/accordionist Craig Denham and bassouki/guitarist Jon Sanders. They gained notoriety in the NZ music scene through touring in diverse locations - from festivals like WOMAD to Stewart Island.
Fans describe their live show as “a pyrotechnic display of dazzling virtuosity” and “a quantum leaping musical curiosity”, playing with skill, humour, passion and adventure.
The Alpaca Social Club’s debut album was released in 2017 and sold out on the first tour, so work has begun on a follow up tome. Through a creative fusion of their instruments, they create sonic landscapes that belie the size of the band!
The nationwide NZ summer tour begins in January and ends early March. Gigs are listed on the Facebook Alpaca Social Club page where they can be contacted.
