John Butler Trio is coming to Church Road…

Secure your tickets now for their one-off show at Church Road this Easter!


Revered for their brilliant live performances and superb musicianship, the John Butler Trio are one of the most successful Australian bands of the current era and are returning to New Zealand for a one-off show at the stunning Church Road winery in the Hawke’s Bay for Good Friday 2018.

The multi-award winning Blues and Roots act are one of those rare acts who have managed to successfully straddle across mainstream and alternative releasing a consistent stream of chart busting tunes.

Shaping the way independent music is released and received in Australia they have graced the stage of just about every major festival on the global circuit, including our very own Rhythm and Vines in 2009. Their captivating and dynamic live performances continue to see them grow in stature and popularity by doing what they do best, touring their socks off!

In 2014 the trio’s most recent album ‘Flesh & Blood’ took out yet another accolade – the Aria Award for Best Blues and Roots Album. The band are a constant on the world touring circuit, their avid fans can expect a new studio album to be released early in 2018.

Previous performances from John Butler Trio in New Zealand include the Rhythm and Vines festival in 2009, Winery Tour in 2011, and a sold-out Powerstation show in 2014. The performance at Church Road Winery (one of New Zealand’s oldest wineries) will go down as one of many memorable performances at the picturesque venue, with the likes of musical legends James Taylor, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper and more having performed there over the years.
