“The band that can make all of New Zealand stand up and dance”

Aotearoa’s Garage Funk legends OdESSA are hitting the road this winter to perform in Raglan at The Yard, on Friday 21st June 2024.  

Once described as “the band that can make all of New Zealand stand up and dance”, OdESSA are one of the country’s most electrifying live acts. Since reforming in 2020 after a hiatus, OdESSA have played a slew of successful shows around their hometown Wellington, including Newtown Festival, Gardens Magic and Cubadupa. They’ve released two brand new singles, and are promising more. As well as performing brand new material, OdESSA will be drawing on their renowned back catalogue including ‘Promises, Promises’, ‘Sugar Pop’ and ‘Bring the Money Back’. Bringing you their searing licks, dirty grooves, and soulful vocals, OdESSA always promise to deliver an energising show, which translates brilliantly from turntable to stage. So strap on your dancing shoes, as this is one band you NEED to see in the flesh.

Supporting them for the night are bands Snakebone and Pineja 

Snakebone is a fusion of far-flung vibrations with a sharp focus on songs and the aim of creating a distinctive, recognisable vibe. Snakebone incorporates bargain-bin funk and soul, nefarious hip-hop beats, and psychedelic world music inflections, weaving ear-worm melodies inside hypnotic grooves to create a narcotic effect.

Pineja are an up and coming Cambridge based Dub-Rock band who boast huge personality to their songwriting, and deliver an energetic and memorable live show.
