The Perfect Venue For All Occasions




MY NAME IS MOANA with electro-wizard Paddy Free is an intimate 90-minute tribute to the Ocean led by singer and songwriter Moana Maniapoto. This music, which is so interwoven with New Zealand’s identify, has taken her from garage parties in South Auckland to exotic stages right around the world.

Using an intoxicating mixture of music, myth and personal anecdote, we discover and share our relationship to the Ocean – and to each other.

Haere Mai. Moana and her musicians host their own little garage party, and you’re invited. Bring your own guitar or ukulele! Join them for a delightful showcase of sublime singing and captivating storytelling that will draw you in, make you think, feel, laugh, sing along and possibly even dance.
