The Frank Burkitt Band are packing their van once again in preparation for a 30 date tour of New Zealand. The tour kicks off in the far south in Dunedin and after performing to a plethora of cities, towns and communities across the country, they will finish their tour in the far north in Paihia.

This epic musical road trip will support the release of their new Live EP ‘Lost but Alive’, recorded in Wellington, just two months before the tour begins! This will be available to buy at shows, as well as Bandcamp.

Audiences can expect newly written and arranged material as well as some of the classic songs that have helped the band gather a nationwide following. Wellington Jazz legend Oscar Laven will be joining the band as a special guest for a few select performances.
