Trevor Spitz

After giving up the drum seat with popular Tauranga band The Four Fours, Trevor Spitz made wide use of his entrepreneurial skills, running nightclubs and becoming a booking agent, talent scout and television marketer and producer.

His Christchurch clubs and skills as a promoter helped get some of New Zealand’s top acts of the day on the road, and his involvement in revitalising music television gave many artists the kind of exposure they could never have otherwise dreamed of.
