Adam McGrath and The Roaring Days - Arts on Tour NZ - Open Hat Night
Sat 22 September 2018
About the event
The lead singer and songwriter for the almost mythic mongrel country band The Eastern, he takes to his solo adventures with the same intensity, passion, love and humour that has given his day band a firm foothold into the hearts and minds of New Zealand. Described by Radio New Zealand and the NZ herald as a “National Treasure” McGrath’s work with The Eastern has become legendary across the many bars, lounges, halls and street corners they’ve graced in their ten year, 2000 show career. Barry Saunders from the iconic Warratahs simply described McGrath as “the truth”. On this tour he’ll be joined by a small but mighty rhythm section (The Roaring Days) who promise to help drive McGrath’s songs and get the hearts beating against the chest.

Open Hat Night!
There is no need to purchase tickets prior to the event. Instead, guests are encouraged to come along to the concert and pay what they think the performance was worth to them, after the concert has finished.
This is an initiative from ATEC to provide the community the opportunity to experience a live performance in our venue at a price they believe is “value for money”.
We understand the cost of some performances requires the audience to take a huge leap of faith when deciding whether to attend or not, and that what you are going to see is worth your precious time and money. This is our way of allowing you to make a fair decision on what you believe the performance is worth and at the same time reassure you that our programmed events are well worth it.
All of our Open Hat Nights will have high quality professional musicians or performers who are currently touring the country under the umbrella of Arts on Tour NZ. Gather some friends, family or neighbours... Try something new, give it a go!
