Lewis Eady 140th Anniversary Celebrations

Back again for its fourth year on the trot, Guitarnival promises to be everything to everyone that loves the acoustic guitar. As Lewis Eady celebrates our 140th year in 2020, we knew we had to have Guitarnival once again to share in the party. After all, no other store has sold more guitars to New Zealanders than Lewis Eady!

FRIDAY 16 OCTOBER - MINI SIMMONS

Doors open from 7pm | Complimentary drink upon arrival | Mini Simmons from 8pm
Tickets: $25 Admission, $15 Concession
 
Journey even further than usual into the realm of guitar love with a one-off acoustic performance by one of Auckland's most vibrant bands, Mini Simmons. Within their relatively short life, Mini Simmons has amassed a loud and loyal fan base around New Zealand thanks to their solid touring schedule, effervescent energy, 70's inspired rock swagger and searing dress sense. What started as campfire sing-a-longs between three friends on a surfing pilgrimage to Mexico, Mini Simmons was born upon return to Aotearoa. Their self-titled debut album was the first vinyl record to be pressed in New Zealand in over 30 years and completely sold out within one week! They have graced the festival stages at Splore, Rhythm & Vines and Soundsplash all the while enlisting new fans along the way. Never ones to rest on their laurels, the band has continually toured around NZ since the debut album release and honed their songwriting craft in the studio, releasing a new single, "Travelling Show" in July.
