We regret to inform you that due to the move to Covid-19 Alert Level 3, we cannot proceed with the Wednesday 12 August and Friday 14 August Weekly Mix sessions. We look forward to welcoming The Bads and DJ Sandy Mill back to the Weekly Mix line-up at a future date, and to enjoying live music with you soon.
Relax to the sweet sounds of live music from some of Tāmaki Makaurau’s talented musicians as part of Auckland Live’s The Weekly Mix.
These free Wednesday lunchtime concerts are your mid-week treat in the heart of the CBD.
This month there will be delicious satay chicken skewers on rice available from BOX Café and Bar for just $10, made fresh on site (vegetarian option available). Or feel free to bring your own lunch.
If you prefer the outdoors, we will also be livestreaming these concerts on to the Auckland Live Digital Stage in Aotea Square, or you can watch it from the comfort of your own home or office by following us on Auckland Live’s Facebook page.
The Bads is a vehicle for the musical escapades of Brett Adams and Dianne Swann, created under the fiery skies of Waitakere, Aotearoa. Most recently spotted impressing a sold-out house at The Civic, as members of the Neil Young Live Rust tribute show, Adams and Swann confirmed their reputation as two of New Zealand’s finest musicians and performers.
Best known for their strong musicianship and songs, they are currently enjoying playing a series of stripped-back three-piece shows with their regular bandmate and multi-instrumentalist, Dave Khan.
With four albums released to date, The Bads have an extensive catalogue to draw from with their song-writing abilities and depth praised to the hilt. 2009’s So Alive was nominated for Best Country Song and Album and more recently 2017’s Losing Heroes charted at #3 and received finalist status for the prestigious Taite Prize in 2018.
