Hailing all the way from across the seas, New Zealand band of brothers Kora take over The Roxy June 16th with special guests Seedless, Through the Roots and Haleamano.

Together the guys create a dynamic wall of rich vocal harmonies carried by a strong powerhouse rhythm section with every track they create. A forefront of the wave of experimental rock/funk and reggae, Kora has always made sure to deliver a dynamic live performance that no doubt blows their audience out of the water.
