September Moon

September Moon are a light-hearted jazz and soul band based in Kerikeri, with a repertoire of standards from the Great American Songbook through to contemporary soul and the occasional surprise.

Vocalist Bella Mason, an exciting young talent with operatic training, mixes rich and pure tones with bluesy rawness.  Julian Brady is a guitar master of a wide range of musical styles, and along with Phil Gore who brings a solid, laid-back beat on drums, has at some point played with most of the area’s talent.  Alan Thomas on bass started in a punk band that evolved into a soul/Motown outfit, and has played around the world.
