Presented by the Powerco Garden Spectacular, Ed Pool brings together multi-instrumentalist Andre 'Sonic Delusion' Manella on beats, synth, guitar and loops and Urs Signer on space-clarinet and keys. The Swiss-born Aotearoa-dwelling duo brings live electronica to the dance floor – we call it techno-jazz! Expect wild solos, groovy beats and a funky good time. The party will be held in the garden surrounding the elegant villa, but will transfer to the property’s vintage shed if the rain comes down.
