Grand Rapids

Grand Rapids is the new band arisen from the ashes of Goldenhorse with writer/singer/guitarist, Ben King.

When: Thur 17 March, 11:00pm - midnight
TV3 Garden Stage, Festival Garden, Aotea Square

Grand Rapids is the new band arisen from the ashes of Goldenhorse. Writer/Singer/Guitarist, Ben King, who, as a founding member and songwriter in Goldenhorse, saw the band through a decade of multi-platinum albums, sold out tours and a handful of iconic New Zealand songs, is back with Faintheartedness, the debut album from Grand Rapids.  Debuting at Nelson's Festival of the Arts in 2010 to rave reviews, this years upcoming performance at the Auckland Arts Festival is in itself a debut, as Grand Rapids will be performing at a full band for the first time, playing songs from the album, Faintheartedness, which will hit the shelves (and of course iTunes) in April.

Join us at the Festival Garden to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the FREE music on the TV3 Garden Stage!
