Hopetoun brown & The Genius of Finn Scholes - Arts on Tour nz - Open Hat Night!
Fri 04 May 2018
About the event
These three multi instrumentalists travel with a boot load of exotic instruments. You may know Hopetoun Brown as the horn section and founding members of local chart toppers Supergroove.
Bass-clarinets, tubas and trombones are swapped for trumpets, saxophones and an assortment of strange keyboard instruments throughout the two stomp-heavy sets. Lead singer Tim Stewart’s large boots will rattle floors throughout the nation as the band work through their repertoire spanning blues, soul, funk, jazz, Americana and stomp.
The set list will be peppered with tunes from Hopetoun Brown’s latest album Look So Good which features guest turns from Tami Neilson, Marlon Williams and their touring buddy Finn Scholes.

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!
