Paul Ubana Jones with Emily Fairlight at Blue Smoke

Look, I know we are a port based website; highlighting all that is good and well with Lyttelton, but Blue Smoke is just through the tunnel and the gig side of things is run by a Portsider. So we are counting it a a home gig! Plus Emily Fairlight is supporting! Good enough for us.

Blue Smoke will be open from 5pm and serving up The Brewery‘s wood fired pizza and hand crafted Cassels & Sons beer all night long.

Doors for the show will be at 8pm

Music will get underway around 8:30pm with an opening set from local songstress Emily Fairlight.

Paul Ubana Jones ia a one man with guitar, sounding like a whole band. With a voice that is as husky as it is evocative, with intoxicating rhythms leaving nobody untouched Paul has toured with the best.

Paul Ubana Jones has been described as a Kiwi treasure, a legend by many that have followed his career.

Born in London to a Yorkshire mother and a Nigerian father, Paul Ubana Jones was playing guitar by the age of 11. This was the beginning of a three-decade career that would see him crossing continents and recording eight albums being credited with three major music awards.
