David C Russell is a singer/songwriter from Glen Eden and plays original acoustic folk-rock songs.

Mandy Patmore is a gorgeous local songstress who is a favourite with Titirangi audiences as a well known West Auckland musician and artist.
She has been performing since she was old enough to stand on a stage, in a number of different line ups ranging from 9 piece funk and soul bands to an all girl punk band.
After being repeatedly told off by band members for being too lippy on stage, she decided to go it alone and has been performing extensively around Auckland as a singer songwriter for many years. Weaving powerful, emotive lyrics with haunting melodies and a voice to remember, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Mandy writes songs about things that move her, amuse her and piss her off.

John Goudge - a dynamic performer & fool with a love of the West, John will be singing with special guest Tracey Pierard. An actor, director & musician, John first appeared on the Titirangi Theatre stage back in 1991, & performing his first solo music concert there in 1993.
John runs classes & performances at his studio ‘Rimu Glade’ in Oratia, & is currently directing the upcoming production of Saturday Night Fever, the musical, at Playhouse Theatre in Glen Eden.
A keen songwriter, John released an original album in 2010 entitled Fool Circle. You can often see him performing with his band, with the Titirangi Allstars Soul Revue Band, or the world-fusion dance music ensemble Ionosphere.

Sasha & Natarani Witten-Hannah - original songs and instrumentals with cello and guitar.
This enduring partnership is well-known around Auckland for its beautiful music. We will be treated to Sasha & Natarani's original music this time, with its uplifting lyrics & emotive instrumentals.
