Bryce Wastney is one of the regions finest singer/songwriters. He has shared the stage with some of the industry’s biggest names & has performed extensively across NZ & Australia. Inspired by the music of Cat Stevens, Neil Finn & the Beatles, Bryce’s music traverses folk, country, gospel, rock and pop – always soulful whatever the genre. http://
Uklectics, usually a trio, has their own unique take on popular music, reinterpreting an eclectic mix of rock, country, and pop tunes.
Nelson’s oldest world music choir, Mosaic has been bringing a cappella pleasure to audiences for 20 years with their high energy and vibrancy. This 40-strong choir is directed by Shannel Courtney and has been described as one of Nelson hidden treasures. Their repertoire covers most the continents of the world, including songs from the Pacific, with a special focus on African music with its uplifting harmonies and rhythms. The inspiration that drives Mosaic is the sense of community that singing fosters and the privilege of experiencing the diversity of musical cultures through song.
Singing as “4 in Accord” Andy, Brian, Richard and Rob are all of Nelson’s popular men’s barbershop chorus, “Men In Accord” http://
3/4 of this quartet also sing in “The Hemispheres” who won the award for most entertaining quartet at the nationals in 2016.
