Ponsonby's premier music venue celebrates NZ Music Month with 40 acts over 20 nights, boasting intimate performances from some of our best loved musicians, current chart toppers and emerging talent: from pop to rock, dance, dub, chamber pop, jazz, creamy country rock, and everything in between.

The 11th annual NZ Music Month festivities are fast approaching and The Whiskey, still buzzing from the success of its 2010 series is boasting an even bigger line up of Kiwi talent to whet even the most discerning music lover's appetite.  

THE WHISKEY LIVE is a series of concerts presented annually by The Whiskey bar in Auckland's Ponsonby Road as a celebration of New Zealand Music Month each May. Featuring a broad spectrum of New Zealand musicians performing one of a kind, limited capacity shows, THE WHISKEY LIVE is fast becoming a headline attraction of New Zealand Music Month each year.

Opening the series on Tuesday 3 May is The Peter Urlich Sextet; Urlich has been a vibrant, paid-up member of the NZ music scene for over 30 years and he shows no signs of stopping.

Closing the series on Saturday 28th May is another who has paid homage to three plus decades in the industry, the man who holds more APRA song-writing awards than any other artist; Mr Dave Dobbyn, performing with his band plus opening support from members of Christchurch based band, Dukes.

The line up includes: AHORIBUZZ, Andrew Keoghan, Anika Moa, Annabel Fay, Avalanche City, Barnaby Weir, Bic Runga, Cairo Knife Fight, Che Fu, Clap Clap Riot, Dave Dobbyn, Dave McArtney & Friends, Don McGlashan, Dukes, F IN MATH, Greg Fleming & The Trains, Greg Johnson, Hello Sailor, Jan Hellriegel, Jason Kerrison featuring The Babysitters Circus, Jonny Love, LA Mitchell, Luke Thompson, Motocade, Nairobi Trio, Nathan Haines and the Dream Band, People of Paris, The Peter Urlich Sextet, Ruby Frost, The Jordan Luck Band, The Thomas Oliver Band.

The Whiskey bar owner, Andrew Bruce is thrilled with the 2011 line-up:

"The Whiskey has been involved in NZ Music Month for three years now and for us it gets bigger and better every year; it's a unique opportunity to see NZ music in a local and intimate setting - we only sell 80 tickets per show, people love it!."
