The Frank Burkitt Band are delighted to be returning to
the 4th Wall as part of their 30 date 'Lost but Alive' NZ Tour. They will be performing a set of new material, as well as some of the old songs that have helped them build a strong national following over the past 5 years.
Frank is a story teller, songwriter, singer and guitarist. In that order. His rambling anecdotes aim to give the audience more of a connection with his songs. A folk songwriter at his core, American roots music with hints of jazz, blues and swing very much shape his music. The band’s set can get the room’s foot tapping, but also contains more poignant songs that audiences can really invest in. ‘Folkies in suits’ as they have been described.
For the first time in New Plymouth, the band will be joined by the runaway talents of Oscar Laven, a one man horn section and stalwart of the Wellington jazz scene.
2019 will see The Frank Burkitt Band embark on the longest tour of their lives. From January - June, they intend to take their music all around New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Yes, they are quite ambitious and slightly unhinged. They will be releasing a new live EP ‘Lost but Alive’ to coincide with their touring adventures.
"Support from fantastic local songwriter Matt Herrett."
