Sunday Soul Sessions Presents: Vegan Eats, Hip Hop Beats II

Vegan Eats and Hiphop Beats #2 is coming! After such an awesome and fun event on the 29th May we are returning to the Kings Arms on the 31st July!

This event will be bigger and better! We have some exciting things in store! Stay tuned for regular updates and announcements.
$2 on the door for a full day of entertainment and prizes to be won on the day :-)

We are excited to have ARCEE RAPPER performing live at the next event! If you haven't heard Arcee AKA Rona Wignall yet then you are missing out on some amazing New Zealand talent! Check out her Live Music video for 'Hands Off' here https://m.youtube.com/watch'v=FEBlRSiOtnU
Arcee is originally from Dunedin and has performed with six60, Scribe and Ladi6. She performed at Ted X in Wellington with this amazing piano rap piece called 'The Keys to Truth'

Last year she released her debut album 'The Arcee LP' which recieved rave 4 star reviews. Her style is unique and her flow is incredible! People are taking notice of Arcee abroad and she is being flown to Germany to perform at the massive Fusion Festival and for a tour of Germany and Switzerland this June and July. She'll be back in Auckland just in time to perform at Vegan Eats Hiphop Beats!

Along side Arcee we will again feature one of Auckland's top Hiphop DJ's, the turntable maestro GREGG HARPER! He will be spinning some booty shaking tunes and laying down some of his incredible scratching, he got the dance floor going at the last event so make sure you don't miss him this time! Gregg is a veteran at what he does having been on the scene since the early 2000’s with his involvement in BFM’s true school Hip Hop show and has been playing clubs around Auckland since 2002. Gregg toured NZ and Australia as Scribe’s DJ where they opened for big names like Kanye West, NAS, Talib Kweli and The Roots. Gregg has also played support shows for respected and renowned DJ’s Quest Love, A-Trak, Mix Master Mike and DJ Babu. You can normally find him in the 1885 basement where he has a weekly residency every Friday night. He plays to the vibe of the crowd and throws down an eclectic mix of older gems and breaking new music!

Come, bring your friends and family and listen to some dope NZ talent and munch some epic vegan eats!


A big thanks to Redbull who are once again decking out the back bar and Beer Garden in style (let's hope it's sunny this time!) There'll also be some delicious and energising Redbull and Vodka drinks specials.

Each event also helps to raise money for our hardworking friends at DAA (Direct Animal Action) so they can continue doing all their amazing work helping the animals!

The menu for #2 is again brought to you by Gorilla Kitchen and will no doubt satisfy all those winter comfort food cravings. We will be featuring a full menu of hearty winter warmers and healthy treats. Stay tuned for updates

We can't wait! See ya'll there :-)
