Hobbs, Kake and Tuwhare present
No Parlour project is complete without the energy of those who work hard with us and those who play hard at our shows.
Thanks to Rebecca Hobbs, Leilani & Andre Kake and Kahu Tuwhare for generously hosting the final Parlour Peeps. Our appreciation goes out to all the artists who contributed their best and everybody who has shown us support over the last couple of years. Let’s keep doing extraordinary things together!
