The Wellington City Shake-'Em-On-Downers

Rogue and Vagabond, 18 Garrett St, Wellington

The Wellington City Shake-’Em-On-Downers, the capital’s most danceable yet offbeat New Orleans-style swing septet, have performed on stages throughout the country since their formation as a busking quartet of young musicians with questionable haircuts in 2011.

Performing energetic interpretations of standards from the New Orleans tradition and American songbook, as well as original compositions inspired by the era, they promise to serve up a spicy jambalaya full of mystery meat.
