The Big Band Build Is Coming
Habitat for Humanity and The New Zealand Music Foundation are proud to be partnering together to create The Big Band Build.
A week-long event like no other, The Big Band Build will bring together some of New Zealand’s most loved musical acts, their fans, community groups and corporate teams, to build a home for a family in housing need.
During the day, Don McGlashan, SJD, The Phoenix Foundation, Anika Boh & Hollie, and Shihad will swap mics and instruments for tools. Under the supervision of Habitat’s master builders, and with the help of hundreds of volunteers, they will construct a home on the forecourt of Auckland’s Holy Trinity Cathedral, which will later be transported to an Auckland site.
Then at night the acts will play a series of gigs inside the Cathedral.
Expect never-seen-before performances from the ultimate Kiwi supergroup - Don McGlashan, SJD and the Phoenix Foundation, and some very special guests joining songbirds Anika Moa, Boh Runga and Hollie Smith.
One of the nights will see a line up of some of New Zealand’s favourite new talent, and marking the completion of The Big Band Build will be a first-ever, completely unplugged and acoustic set from the legendary Shihad.
Tickets are on sale now from www.nztix.co.nz and www.ticketmaster.co.nz from today and all proceeds from The Big Band Build will go directly to support the vital work of Habitat for Humanity and the New Zealand Music Foundation.
