More live music than autumn leaves

The end of May means frosty weather and cooler jazz.  Cafe Royale will be hosting 3 acts over the holiday weekend:

  • On Saturday evening we have Peter Shaw and Arie Boesberg playing. Book a table for dinner.  Details here.
  • Sunday afternoon sees the Al Jenkins Quartet playing some cool bop. Book a table for a late lunch by calling the cafe on 06-354 7479 or drop by for a listen. Details here.

The last Thursday of every month is Open Mic night at the cafe.  Bring along an instrument, your voice or just your ears to join the friendly and accommodating group of musicians who meet up each month at Cafe Royale for coffee, craft beer and alove of good tunezz. 



The fabulous Laura Collins will be playing with the Back Porch Blues Band at the cafe on 12 June from 7.00pm.   You can expect to hear a little BB, a little Koko, some Mudy Waters and more soulful vocals, sweet guitar sounds, honky tonk piano, percussive bass and upright bass. Yeah baby! This event is not to be missed.

Every Friday night is jazz night - a time to catch up with pals, listen to the magical Chris Dann on piano, and sample some new craft beers before the weekend.  CHris plays every Friday from 5pm.
