Coming Attractions

Due to the situation with Covid-19 and recent restrictions put in place by the NZ government Cassels Blue Smoke is temporarily closed. All ticketed concert events up until the end of May have been postponed or cancelled. We wish to keep our community safe during this time. If you have any questions and want to be in touch with us the best way to do this is via email.

The Arts community has been heavily impacted by Covid-19 and we’ll be doing our very best to support our creative family as best we can. In the meantime please support your local musicians by purchasing their music online, the most effective way of doing this is by visiting their individual websites and Bandcamp pages.

Kia kaha Aotearoa.

Reminiscent of an old worldly dance hall, Blue Smoke offers up a fine array of euphonic performances from local luminaries and international heavy weights alike.

We’re taking table reservations for pre-show meals and refreshments so be in touch today!
