Some (very wise people) would say White Chapel Jak are the best covers band in NZ! This award winning group are on a nationwide tour and Taupo is on the list!

Whether you are a craft beer fan or not, this evening will be an excellent night out.

We’ve done Whisky & Jazz, Rum & Rock and Bourbon and Blues – not it’s time for Craft beer and Covers!

Enjoy tasting a selection of New Zealand’s most delicious craft beer and cider before being kicking up your heels with one of New Zealand’s hottest covers band, White Chapel Jak.

You’ve never seen anything quite like White Chapel Jak. They’re a high energy acoustic Kiwiana band that will have you groovin’ with their fresh and funky approach to songs you all know and love.

Bring your dancing shoes and be ready for an extremely fun night out!

This event is run in association with Taupo Hospice and will raise much needed funds for this very worthwhile organisation.

Thank you to the team at Le Pine & Co as well as The Merchant of Taupo for their support of the event.
