Kathryn Van Beek
Hi I’m Kathryn, a bass player and singer turned event manager. My favourite musical moments have included opening for The Rogers Sisters, driving Dan Auerbach around Auckland, mud wrestling for a music video, putting on a rock show in a car showroom, and of course being swept away into dreamland by some of the amazing shows I’ve been to. Past flatmates will be surprised that this show doesn’t include any Eagles of Death Metal or, er, Airbourne.

Christiaan de Wit
My name is Christiaan de Wit aka DJ Kreitskreator. I moved from Amsterdam to Auckland four months ago because I love volcanoes, black sandy beaches and above all palm trees. Back in Amsterdam, I worked as a freelance journalist and copywriter, but also for two great record stores: Concerto and Rush Hour, the latter also running the self-titled label as well as the Kindred Spirits imprint. Here in Auckland, I still write my ass off for Groove Guide, but I also work at Real Groovy Records where I dig up a lot of stuff. I love Conch Records as well.
