Graham Brazier Album Launch Party

This is the official launch of Graham Brazier's last album ever made for fans and purchasers of the CD, "Left Turn at Midnight. Alan Jansson, the producer of the album, will be introducing some of the key tracks and giving us the story behind each track and insights into the music. Once we have introduced the new album, we will then invite friends and NZ Artists to perform Graham's songs live on stage and you never know just who will be performing on the day, many of Graham's past band mates and friends in other bands from across the music spectrum of NZ music. This is a celebration of Graham's music past and new and a kick start of the new album. It's also a celebration of New Zealand music in general.

Admission will only be granted to those people who have pre-purchased an album, and album sales will be available at the door if the event isn't sold out prior.
