I received this flyer a few days ago and I will certainly be supporting this great young band. They play about town and their gigs are always well received. Their recent gig at the CJC was very enjoyable and I reviewed it about a month ago. I know Andrea and see good things ahead for her (and band mates). Andrea is from West Auckland and went to Waitakere college where she was taught by Stephen Nightingale. Later Andrea obtained a music degree at the Massey University Jazz School. Stephen Nightingale also taught my son, who later obtained a B Mus. at Auckland University. As a society we should pay more respect to these good teachers who encourage and empower pupils, rather than forcing arbitrary and ill-conceived notions like ‘National Standards’ onto them.
All we have to do to keep the music coming is to support deserving groups, local clubs and developing musicians. They will do the rest.
