Jam Sandwich

Jam Sandwich is a collection of local Northland musicians who have played at the festival since 2011.

This year we continue our tradition of identifying promising young musicians at Kerikeri High School and having them join us especially for the festival.

Bella Mason (vocals) returns this year, along with saxophonist James Dawes.

We are pleased to add Troy Ramsay to the lineup on guitar and vocals. 

Each of these youngsters has chosen music as a future career, going on to study in the next few years.  The festival provides a great opportunity for these teenagers to experience playing in a big band, composing harmonies, horn parts, lyrics and structure.
