WJC presents: Auf Wiedersehen Nils!

@ Meow



9 Edward Street, Wellington


After seven years in Wellington (this time round) saxophonist Nils Olsen plays his last few local gigs before heading off to live in Germany. Over the last few years he has played, toured and recorded with several groups including the RNZAF Band, the DADS (the Dancing and Drinking Society), and The Andrew London Trio; a spinoff from Hot Club Sandwich, with whom both Andrew and Nils worked extensively during the 2000’s.

Over the last few years the trio have toured extensively throughout New Zealand, made half a dozen trips to the Norfolk Island Jazz Festival, and recorded several albums including ‘Ladies a Plate’ which received a glowing tribute in Downbeat magazine, and ‘Let’s Take Offence!’ which included their original title track to the acclaimed biographical movie ‘No Ordinary Sheila’. They cap off their ‘Nils’ period with a trip to Australia this June for a handful of engagements in the Melbourne area.

This event is sold out.
