ASB Gardens Magic: Jess Chambers

Monday was a holiday here in Wellington and it was nice to spend the day together, especially as I had been working on the weekend. We spent the morning with Sam and Jules checking out some wedding venues in the Wairarapa. It looks like a decision has been made on where they’ll be getting married, they’ve just to to finalise all the important details like a confirmed date with the venue. Exciting stuff as I’ll be taking the photos on the day. An extra bonus was the owner at one site (Tarureka Estate) taking my card and I’m now listed as a photographer on their website, which is nice. We also had good coffee/tea/hot chocolate/milkshake at the Cuckoo Cafe in Greytown, lunch at the Royal Hotel in Featherston (my beef curry was very good) and walked along a south coast beach near Lake Onoke.

In the evening we were back in Wellington for another ASB Gardens Magic concert. Jess Chambers was the performer this time and we enjoyed an hour of good music while sitting in the sun. We last saw Jess perform at St Peters Hall in Paekakariki in May last year and this time things were very similar with Jess on stage accompanied by Peter Hall. There were a few covers thrown in to vary the set and a few new numbers as well. After a half hour or so Jess and Peter were joined by Billy Earl (one half of the following act Rosy Tin Teacaddy) and Al Fraser. The backing vocals from Billy and Al and Al’s whistle playing on songs such as Island added another dimension to the music and I very much enjoyed the set.

We didn’t stick around for Rosy Tin Teacaddy largely because Keryn wasn’t felling the best and we also needed to go have dinner. I did stop us at Plimmerton so I could take a few photos of the sunset.
