NZ Soul All Dayer #8: All Nighter Edition
























It can get a lil' chilly in Tamaki-Makarau during July, so Aotearoa's most soulful party is returning to warm you up with a double dose of feelgood flavours!

We kick off at 4pm on Friday afternoon in the Britomart Country Club and enjoy a live solo set from Isaac Aesili (Sorceress, Latinaoteara) plus DJ support from the Soultearoa Crew, before heading across the alley and downstairs to the 1885 Basement to carry on until the wee hours, while listening to the Soultearoa DJs, and our favourite Wellingtonians, Chocolate Box Deluxe (vocalists Lisa Tomlins (Lord Echo, Trinityroots) and Vanessa Stacey (Electric Wire Hustle, The Bones) and DJ Ayesha (Bella Kalolo)).

An all day (and night!) celebration of soul music, the purpose of the NZ Soul All Dayer is to bring together like-minded lovers of real soul music while replicating the hedonistic vibe and spirit of the original Soul All Dayers and All Nighters from the UK.

Our events begin in the early afternoon, and over the course of twelve hours a stack of hand-picked local DJs reach deep into their crates to play many of the shades of soul music, from classic soul, rare groove, funk and boogie, to northern soul, proper disco and much, much more besides.

As is our way, we'll be giving away free copies of the Soultearoa Shakedown fanzine (including exclusive content from around the world!), screening classic soul and Blaxploitation movies throughout the day, selling 'Soul Tiki' merchandise and playing more good music than you can shake a tailfeather at.
