About Elemental AKL
Live Nation in association with Nathan and his father Kevin Haines present a show of their shared love of jazz and their personal journeys through a life in music.
"Growing up in the 1970’s and 80’s with Kevin as my Dad meant there was a lot of music in the house. Not only the music he’d been collecting on vinyl since the 1950’s, but the live gigs he played as a sideman to many local and international artists…I took these special times with me and into the world at large when I left New Zealand in 1991. I wouldn’t return to live in New Zealand for over 15 years, but to this day those things I learned with my Dad, the music and the atmosphere, watching performers weave a spell on the audience and experiencing first hand the magic of live music is the legacy my father passed onto me.
“Songs With My Father is a chance for us to compare notes on some favourite songs and for me to show a little background in my journey as a musician. I’m sure Dad will have some stories too!”
Unique to Elemental AKL, Elemental Nights is an exclusive curated concert series showcasing an impressive line-up of emerging and high-profile local artists.
Enlivening some of Auckland's most unique venues, music fans will get the opportunity to witness critically acclaimed American singer/songwriter/author Amanda Palmer at the sacred venue of St Mary’s-in-Holy Trinity. The lineup also features artists including dreamy RnB super group LEISURE, King Sweeties (Cass Basil – Tiny Ruins & Bic Runga) and Opossom (Kody Nielson – The Mint Chicks, Unknown Mortal Orchestra) and Tom Scott’s highly-awarded Avantdale Bowling Club. They’ll be performing at venues including Hopetoun Alpha which will see its laneways transformed with an array of rotating food trucks and lighting installations designed by Angus Muir, the Hollywood Avondale and The Civic’s hidden gem, Wintergarden. More acts are still to be announced.
Designed, produced and promoted by Live Nation, whether you care to dance vigorously or sway gently, these one-off special shows should not be missed.
