That's exactly what Auckland's annual Mission Bay Jazz Festival is about. For $10 a pop, you can see 14 bands playing live - at the same spot.
My first time at the fest and I was half-expecting just jazz by the bay. Happily, I discovered some cool rock bands incl. two awesome ones:
The Recliner Rockers - true to their name, they belted out hard bluesy rock tracks. A seasoned bunch of performers, these guys are a class act!
Want to have a listen? Check out the videos.
The Flaming Mudcats - if blues is your thing, here it is. These talented pros are on top of their game. Wait till the harmonica meets the guitar!
Feel like some vintage blues?
