More summer gigs to come at the YOT Club

By January 21, 2016 No Comments

It has been an eventful few months at the YOT club with heaps of awesome gigs and we’re proud to say there are a lot more to come.

Thursday 21st and 28th we have Jonah Lake gracing the Yotty. Jonah was here two years ago and impressed all with his surf reggae soul guitar playing and singing.

Something a little different is going down at The Yotty this Friday. Canadian trumpet supremo Mike Field brings his amazing band for a night of great music with Local DJ B-Rex setting the scene and playing before and after. I hope all jazz and music fans out there come along and support this world renowned muso and his awesome band.

Legendary emcee TALI (NZ) returns to The Yot on Saturday and brings another amazing vocalist Georgie Fisher along for the ride. Last time she was here she was incredible! We’ve got a feeling this time is going to be even better. Tali and Georgie will be playing individual one hour sets with local DJ Ras Drulox bringing the party before and after.

The Sunday session this week features two of the Countries most up and coming DJs/producers Stack and Piece playing the after 10pm part in the Club with local selectors Jamin-i, Bobo and Dubsonic outside from 4.20pm.
The Yot Club has some huge acts coming up through the long weekends and other weekends beyond:

On Friday the 29th Melbourne band Cheshire Grimm (who have pretty solid Raglan connections) will be playing with Auckland band Thin White Lines.

The 30th has local funksters Mighty Mighty playing with a surprise support act plus DJ B-Rex. The Sunday Session on Auckland Anniversary weekend will be huge. Ex Kora man Laughton Kora along with Shapeshifter MC P-Diggs will be performing live outside then they will be heading inside to do the DJ/MC thing. Expect a massive night!

Waitangi Friday the 5th brings Sola Rosa to town. Long time Raglan favourites, this gig will sell out so get in early – tickets at the video shop. Waitangi Day we will be doing a similar night as last year, celebrating Bob Marley’s birthday with local bands playing early and selectors Ras Drulox and Jamin-i dropping tunes all night.

The Sunday session on the 7th Feb (Waitangi weekend) will feature one of the worlds highest profile house/techno DJs/producers Ian Pooley. This German legend tours the world and we are are pretty happy about enticing him to Raglan.

The week after that brings Dutch band My Baby back to Raglan. All you who have seen them in their last visits know how exceptional these guys are. Well the last year has seen them scale new heights. playing huge festivals in Europe, selling out one of the rock worlds most iconic venues in Paradiso and playing 10,000 capacity plus venues through England with Seasick Steve. These guys of the best bands I have ever seen and judging by the amount of people who have hit me up, I know a lot of you agree. Only confirmed date is Saturday the 13th Febuary but these guys adore Raglan so there may be extra shows.

Friday the 19th brings Sydney punk band Nerdlinger with NZ support. Saturday the 20th brings Raglan favourites the Sunshine Soundsystem to town.

Finally, before the end of March we will see favourite bands both from the Yot and Soundsplash grace the stage including Surrey Boudit, The Acetones, Fireshark, Wave Pigs, L. A. B. and Weird Together
Yotty is open from 6ish Wed-Sunday for free pool, great pizza, good sounds plus all the above top line entertainment!
