NZ Music month hits the YOT Club

To celebrate New Zealand Music month we’ll be treating punters to a series of free entry nights this week at the YOT Club.

Tonight (Thursday) sees the return of one of the town’s favourite bands, The Hollow Grinders. These Surf / Punk pioneers will be playing their first gig in Raglan for ages. Playing alongside The Hollow Grinders will be Arthur Ahbez and Super Bird. Arthur’s music ranges from somber acoustic folk tracks through to loud swinging hip jams, with his stated aim of pushing open doors and inviting people to take part in the moment.

Friday sees local funk soul brothers Fanga and Andy bring their respective record collections to The Yotty. Expect some old classics over many genres, with a few surprises. The league test will be shown weather permitting on the 16 square metre screen outside, with full sound as well, as on the TV’s inside.

Saturday sees Yot Club resident Bubby play a collection of rock, funk, dance, drum and bass for your musical pleasure

On Sunday local DJ’s Matt Duff and Chris Rayner bring their party brand DMTH to the Yot Club. Their last visit resulted in a packed dance floor the whole night as people grooved to their deep minimal tech house sounds

Upcoming gigs at the Yot Club include drum and bass artist Trei on the 9th. Trei is smashing it out of the park at the moment with overseas releases topping Beatport charts world wide, cementing Trei s reputation alongside State of Mind, The Upbeats and Concord Dawn as one of the worlds most in demand drum and bass DJs/ producers.

Local lads The Brown Brothers put on one of their always eagerly anticipated gigs on the 10th May. Auckland rapper poet singer Tourettes plays the Yot Club with Australian singer Ben Salter on the 16th May. Auckland band Blood Bags play the 24th, and Cornerstone Roots play Queens Birthday Sunday with 3 Doors Down and Jamin-i.

The Yot Club is open 7 days from midday with great food, free pool, free wifi, free karaoke, sky sport and now the capacity to take anything from the internet/you tube and play on one or more of our TV’s. Thinking more surfing, snowboarding than porn of course. Late nights Wednesday ‘till Sunday.
