Herbie Hancock.

With a career spanning seven decades and a staggering 14 Grammy Awards, few artists have had more influence on modern music than Herbie Hancock. Sometimes referred to as a living legend, his appeal spans genres. With an unmistakable style, he has earned legions of fans around the world. He is the creative force behind timeless classics like ‘Cantaloupe Island’, 'Watermelon Man', ‘Chameleon’, and ‘Rockit’. His Wellington concert promises to be a truly electrifying one. 

In the 1970s, Herbie Hancock incorporated synthesisers into his music. He experimented with jazz fusion, funk, and rock. During this period he released the album ‘Head Hunters’. It is still hugely influential in the jazz world and beyond. In his autobiography Miles Davis said, “Herbie was the step after Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, and I haven’t heard anybody yet who has come after him.” More than a jazz musician he’s also a band leader, composer, and university professor.  This is an opportunity not to be missed — join this icon of modern music as he takes to the stage this October.
