Art Gecko

supported by Aldrich Cecilio

Art Gecko
Returning to us again, the Hamilton Jazz Society are proud to present Art Gecko supported by Aldrich Cecilio in concert, on Sunday 26th May, 4.30-7.30pm, at the Waikato Commerce Club, 197 Collingwood Street, Hamilton.

Art Gecko continue to evolve as the popular broad-based social band that play Jazz and Blues standards along with modern tunes. Last year, the band added the lead guitarist Tony Baucke to their line-up and he has added yet another dimension to the band.

Art Gecko have always actively sought to nurture young talent and they are introducing a local and exciting young guest singer, Stephanie Helliwell. The band is looking forward to playing for the HJS in May, as they have done many times since the band was formed 25 years ago.

Do join us for a relaxed afternoon of great, danceable music; a good chance to wind down the weekend.

Dinner, snacks and refreshments are available for purchase from the Club.

Coming up:

  • Sunday 30th June – The Lex Pistols – bringing us Traditional Dixieland Jazz.
  • Sunday 28th July – TBA
  • Sunday 18th August – Wizard & Oz return. Please note change of date this month.
