Jens Hansen Gold & Silversmith co-sponsor of The Sitting Room

Jens Hansen Gold & Silversmith was very proud to be co-sponsor of 'The Sitting Room' at the Nelson Arts Festival for the 3rd year running.

The show was a sellout and more than 450 people had a fantastic time dancing to the eclectic musical picks of award winner music journalist Grant Smithies.

The Sitting Room

With Grant Smithies

Sunday Star Times music writer Grant Smithies has been collecting rare and unusual dance records from around the world for over 20 years, and he selects the absolute pearlers, just for you. Don’t come along expecting to hear familiar office party anthems or just one musical style. The Sitting Room is diverse and surprising - samba and bossa nova classics from Brazil, hi-life music from Nigeria, Puerto Rican boogaloo, dancehall reggae from Jamaica, calypso from Trinidad, plus a scorching selection of soul, funk, disco and house music. The Sitting Room has sold out for the last two years, so get your tickets early.
