John Hanlon concert at The Lounge

Saturday, November 19

East FM and The Lounge are proud to present a special concert: The legendary John Hanlon will be singing his songs and telling his story in the intimate setting of The Lounge – Howick’s best kept secret.

An Evening With a Songwriter – John Hanlon – Lounging Around at The Lounge, on Saturday November 19, is a unique event – a homecoming concert for Howick’s greatest and most successful songwriter.

Fifty years ago, John Hanlon, a young singer-songwriter from Howick, signed a record contract.

What followed was five stellar years in the limelight that included Top Ten hits – Lovely Lady, Damn the Dam, Higher Trails and Apple Wine, and two Double-Gold selling albums, Garden Fresh and Higher Trails, along with an impressive number of New Zealand music industry awards.

There have also been another seven John Hanlon albums since, including the recent and impressive Naked Truths. See
