Bill Withers Social Club
Bill Withers Social Club is an ode to an American singer-songwriter whose stories of love, hardship, friendship, and whānau have shaped a generation of local musicians and touched the world.
Vocalists Troy Kingi, Dallas Tamaira, Rio Hemopo, and L.A. Mitchell honour the soul legend’s passing in March 2020 alongside band members Iraia Whakamoe and Ryan Prebble (The Nudge, Fly My Pretties); Adan Tijerina (The Yoots, Ahoribuzz), and Daniel Hayles (Lord Echo, Hollie Smith).
From ‘Lean on Me’ to ‘Use Me’, ‘Grandma’s Hands’, ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’, and many more, each vocalist’s song selections reflect their personal connection to the Bill Withers legacy, while leaning into his signature relaxed style of performing.
Join us for one extraordinary evening as we celebrate the man and his work in the whakapapa of New Zealand music.
Early Bird tickets are available until 11:59pm 6 January 2022, or until allocation is exhausted.
