Joined by a group of the city’s rising jazz musicians, Rainey and band will be performing a set of original modern jazz, as well as new interpretations of standards.

Rainey is currently completing his third year of study in the CPIT Jazz degree, majoring in both performance and arranging. He frequently performs with a number of Christchurch based groups, such as the Justice Brass Band and Symposium Big Band. He has also recently toured around New Zealand with Canadian trumpet player Mike Field, and also as a member of the New Zealand Youth Choir.
