There's a great opportunity for keen music producers coming to Auckland very soon: the New Zealand Music Producer Series, and APRA are excited to announce that we have a scholarship available to enable one talented individual to attend.

Hosted by producer Greg Haver and supported by NZ On Air, Recorded Music New Zealand, and APRA AMCOS, the event is bringing two internationally renowned producers and engineers to Auckland, to give a series of masterclasses at Roundhead Studios from January 16 - 20.

Flamboyant English hard-rockers The Darkness have announced their first ever New Zealand tour – with shows in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in April 2017 – and they will be joined by Kiwi legends Push Push, reforming after 24 years!

Relive the classics from The Darkness’ outstanding debut album, Permission To Land (2003) right through to their most recent album, Last Of Our Kind. Expect gems like “I Believe In A Thing Called Love“, “Growing On Me“, “Love Is Only A Feeling“, “One Way Ticket” and many more.

Pieces Of Molly make a long overdue return to the local rock scene this weekend at Churchills Live. The band have been through some line-up changes in recent times and are now ready to unleash their full throttle rock n roll show. Joining the band in support will be Smokin’ Voodoo and Enfire and entry is free.
