The Experience Band

  • Point Chevalier RSA 1136 Great North Road Auckland, Auckland, 1022 New Zealand (map)

The Experience Band grew out of the Bublé Experience Band so popular with Jazz and Blues Club audiences from 2014. For this show we present not only jazz standards but nostalgia songs such as Blood, Sweat and Tears, Earth, Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, the Average White Band and instrumentals from the Brecker Brothers plus some great new latin charts written for little big band. 
The band features Marjan a talented vocalist, songwriter and actress (seeher in the  newly released film 6 Days) who has performed at the Tauranga Jazz Festival, CJC, Music in the Parks, Cornwall Park and Xmas in the Park. Marjan’s unique sound has been shaped by years of listening to Motown, Jazz, R&B, and Pop and also draws inspiration from the music and traditions of her indigenous Persian culture. 
The ‘experienced’ musicians are: James Langabeer, Lukas Fritsch, Markus Fritsch – saxes; Grant Langdon and Matt Howell tpts; Mike Young – tbn; Ben Fernandez – pno/kybd; Nathan Collings- gtr; Sally Han bass; and Trevor Thwaites drums.
