Now AHoriBuzz are set to tackle Aotearoa announcing a HUGE nationwide tour that will take them from the top of the North Island to the bottom of the South Island and all the places in between to take on the Nation Of The State.

Since it’s inception AHoriBuzz has toured with Fat Freddy’s, Tiki, Shapeshifter, Rhombus and Salmonella Dub and graced the stages of Rippon, Homegrown, Kaikoura Roots, Splore, Rhythm and Vines and Alps, Electric Avenue and many more festival stages, pubs and clubs. Aaron’s music grew up on the streets of New Zealand busking with his Dad.

AHoriBuzz line-up is a flowing, ever-changing funked up beast.

Aaron’s social media is legendary and his hilarious, often political, sometimes poignant social commentary gains active followers and spurs conversation on topics such as Kim Dot Com, Goodnight Kiwi and finding a drummer.

He’s been dubbed ‘‘New Zealand’s answer to Jimi Hendrix’’ in the media multiple times and there’s no denying

Aaron is one of NZ’s most unique musical talents.
