Michael Costello Trio


Bedlam and Squalor

7:30 PM

Mike Costeloe presents some exciting new original material for trio. A trip to Europe mid 2023 was the catalyst for a swathe of fresh musical ideas, that Mike has been slowly working through over the past few months. Influenced by contemporary innovators in the improvised music scene, such as Peter Evans, and Ill Considered, this new material seeks to explore new approaches to spontaneous music making. Mike will be joined by Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa on drums, and Seth Boy on bass.

Mike returned to Wellington four years ago after living abroad in Edinburgh, UK, He has proved to be one of the city’s most prolific and exciting trumpet players. Over the course of his career, he has played music with the likes of The Wellington City Shake-‘Em-On Downers, TOI, the Rodger Fox big band, Louis Baker, and The Black Seeds, as well as written music for the RNZAF Jazz Orchestra, and the Loemis Winter Festival.
