So, here’s the thing ..

There was a time when music venues across New Zealand and Australia had capacity crowds at their afternoon “Sunday Session”.

If you were a music fan and liked to dance, then the Sunday Session was the perfect place to listen to some great bands and take a twirl around the dancefloor.

As part of celebrating their 28th year, Dunedin’s OXO CUBANS are resurrecting that great tradition with their first 2023 “OXO CUBANS SUNDAY SESSION” that kicks off at the TAIERI BOWLING CLUB, 2.30 – 6pm, Sunday 23rd of April.

Joining Oxos Doug, Marcel & Craig are two outstanding entertainers with music that is ideally suited for such an occasion.

Auckland’s CHET O’CONNELL is without a doubt New Zealand’s most in demand guitarist.A versatile and dynamic performer, his instrumental and vocal ability spans a wide variety of musical genres.

He has supported, toured & shared stages with many leading artists, including Tommy Emmanuel, Dr John, Kenny Rogers, Joe Cocker, Cher, Gerry and the Pacemakers, the Topp Twins, the Ladykillers, Jackie Clarke, Hammond Gamble and iconic Kiwi Bluesman Midge Marsden.

Crookston based JEFF REA has long been regarded as a unique singer/songwriter.

A seasoned performer with a four-decade career, his golden voice holds audiences spellbound and has graced theatres, music festivals and concert halls from Tapanui to Nashville.

As a recording artist his most recent album is the self-penned "Who I am".

He's a veteran of the road and returns to America each year to tour with legendary U.S country music star Gary Morris.

He is also a 20-year member of the Oxo Cubans musical family.

So, for great songs, red hot guitar and tunes that’ll have you up on the dancefloor, come enjoy an excellent afternoon at the TAIERI BOWLING CLUB with The OXO CUBANS SUNDAY SESSION.
