Maori garage parties are hotbeds of undiscovered talent and a central part of our cultural and musical legacy back home in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Basically, where you fullas park your cars, we Maori party, drink and sing. Garage party nights always overflow with laughter, food, drink and stories as we celebrate life, love, family, friends and all-round good times with cheeky banter, uninhibited truths and hearty harmonies. Haere mai – come on down to the Ermintrude to party with us and a special guest artist every night at Edinburgh's flash-est garage party.

One of my favourite shows I saw at this years festival. Beautiful music & singing, a lot of laughter and a party atmosphere! It reminded me of being back in NZ and I had a smile on my face throughout. For the hour I was there, I truly felt like I was in the company of friends.

These guys are great singers and I really love their sound. However, I'm afraid I don't enjoy watching people drink to excess. One of the guys downed at least half a bottle of vodka the night I went, and the effect was obvious from his glassy stare afterwards. Fortunately the others carried it through, so the beautiful sound and humour continued. But I hate to think what he is doing to his body if he carries on like that each evening.

Garage Party is named after the legendary Maori garage party get togethers, a central part of their cultural and musical legacy. The New Zealand four piece celebrate life, love, family and friends through music, stories and comedy. The formula isn't hard to grasp, you get a bunch of friends together...
