THE BOOG

BOOG_COVER.jpg

The Boog this March is looking to bring the heat, with Wood's resident MC and lyricist from killer Auckland-based hip-hop outfit, Team Dynamite, Lucky Lance on the 1s & 2's, founder of Boom Bap, Take it 2 the Bridge (worldwide boat party smashers), The Uptown Boogie and NOTW stalwart DJ Hudge, and veteran of straight up discotheque Frank Booker.

Additional special guests to be announced.

****************************************

The Boog is Neck of the Woods' very own in-house club night - a happy, hedonistic throwback to the late 70's and early 80's and the music hip hop was birthed out of - disco, funk and soul but most of all, boogie. Every month we bring together some of the best DJs and selectors from all over the music scene to set the dance floor on fire with their favourite boogie tunes.

The Boog is all about good vibes on the dance floor and a room full of swaying bodies with enough space for everyone, so go ahead and leave any bad buzz at the door.

Check out our full Safe & Sound policy before the gig.

Hot Potato Band

https://www.facebook.com/events/258753211468219/

hotpotatoband.jpg

Over the past 4 years, Hot Potato Band has seen an unprecedented evolution. Beginning their journey as roving street performers, the 10 piece band from Sydney, Australia have been twice around the the literal and figurative block. Like a muscle they have exercised their musicianship and showmanship which is the likely reason they leave lasting impressions on festivals and audiences.

Although difficult to describe their genre, HPB continues to compile their arsenal of songs inspired by Pop, Funk, Ska, Reggae and bound by the classic sounds of New Orleans brass bands.

The bands unique sound is built on the backs of three drummers and a sousaphone, along with an array of horns covering catchy chorus lines and providing a beautiful harmonic cloud for Ben (vocalist) to float above. They are a band never to shy from a good time.

UXL EP RELEASE PARTY ( WITH IJEBU PLEASURE CLUB AND MORE GUESTS!)

UXL EP RELEASE.jpg

UXL’s 2019 EP ‘The Migrant Mind’ drops in March, and a stunning lineup of some of Auckland’s finest afrocentric artists and DJs are descending on Neck of the Woods on Saturday 30th to celebrate.

IJEBU PLEASURE CLUB
UNCHAINED XL
MO MUSE
BLACK SUNDAY
DJ TIDO
FUNKSTERISM

***LIMITED Early Bird's available for $10!***

UNCHAINED XL is a Nigerian Kiwi Hiphop artist and producer with a unique, afrocentric sound easily recognizable as his own. 2018 saw UXL’s reach expand globally, as he toured the UK with shows in London, Bristol, Sheffield, Leeds and Cardiff, performing alongside artists such as Mungos HiFi, Afro Cluster and Eva Lazarus. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Fela Kuti, Jidenna and M.anifest, UXL and his live band deliver a highly energetic, passionate performance that will leave you searching for more.

IJEBU PLEASURE CLUB takes you to Nigeria in 1987, where a small town Afrobeat band have just been told they need to play American top 40 hits to keep their nightclub gig. They don’t own any of the records, but they’re going to give it a try. Mashing up the music you remember (and some that’s best forgotten) with the Nigerian funk style of Fela Kuti, and about a dozen musicians, this band will surprise and delight, showing you that all pop music comes from mother-Africa.

MO MUSE is the “Everyman” of New Zealand Hip-Hop. Known for his conscious and relatable content, Muse delivers break-neck party anthems with his raw and energetic presence. Nevertheless, underneath the glitz is the heart of a young African individual with a dream and a pen. His undeniable level of self-awareness along with his willingness to be vulnerable with his listeners is what sets his music apart from his peers.

Supported by the powerful rhythms of Pan-African percussion group Black Sunday, plus DJ Tido and Funksterism spinning all the greatest afrofunk gems, this lineup is set to deliver the most electric, dance-worthy afrofunk and hiphop crossover Auckland city has seen yet.
