Eru Dangerspiel are a mesmeric 22-piece group (plus choir) led by TrinityRoots drummer and multi-instrumentalist, Riki Gooch, who guides this unique and artistic musical exploration.

On August 8 2009, an incarnation of Eru Dangerspiel, which consisted of close to 40 band members, gathered onstage to blend unique live jams awash with visual imagery, exploring the depths of harder edged funk, free jazz and futurism.

With visuals headed by Mike Busy (the visual creative behind the live Fly My Pretties shows), and filmed by accomplished director Darryl Ward, the CD / DVD showcases a beguiling blend of multimedia elements.

The songs on this CD and DVD are taken directly from the unforgettable one-off, sold-out show performed, filmed and recorded last year at the Auckland Town Hall.

PERFORMERS: Riki Gooch, Whirimako Black, Jonathan Crayford, Chip Matthews and Julien Dyne (both Opensouls), Anna Coddington (Fly My Pretties), Nathan Haines, Laughton Kora and Fran Kora (both Kora), Isaac Aesili (Solaa, Opensouls), Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle, Fly My Pretties), Parks (Ladi 6), Ned Ngatae (Dimmer), Mike Fabulous (The Black Seeds, Fly My Pretties). Joe Lindsay, Toby Laing and Scott Towers (all Fat Freddy’s Drop), Lewis McCallum, Olga Gryniewicz, Submariner (Che Fu, Feelstyle, Dimmer, The Turnaround), Patrick Pihama (Riki’s uncle!), Ross Burge (The Muttonbirds), Will Rickets (The Phoenix Foundation), The Dangerspiel Municipal Choir.

"The Eru Dangerspiel concert was a celebration of New Zealand's musical community and its intimate connection with audiences across the country. Viva La Musica!" - Martyn Pepperell

“Gooch is a master beatmaker on machines, live drums, and even when he and his mates are clapping their hands. At times the grooves might be odd but this is sweet future soul music.” - Scott Kara, NZ Herald.
