Big thanks to Terry Shore today. Just had my first radio interview on Wellington Access Radio. Apparently he’s been doing it for a while now. Our paths crossed at an open mic night at the Welsh Dragon Bar. A singer songwriter himself, Terry has a very unique and original style to his music. If you get a chance, check him out at Bandcamp. The programme, which features recordings and live tracks will be aired on Saturday 24th of March 2018.
Alex Moffat is a Wellington singer songwriter who creates memorable little ditties in the mold of The Counting Crows, Elvis Costello and their ilk. More than happy to accompany him on bass guitar recently at the New Town Festival, here in Wellington. Over 80,000 people attended. We were the last act on the Emmet Street stage.
Thanks to everyone involved with the “Sneak Peek” at The Karori Event centre. Some good local talent to be heard in this new venue. Almost complete, funds are still being raised for what will eventually, i’m sure be a valuable asset for wider Karori community. It really is a great space. Can’t wait to see what kind of things will eventually utilize this space. Hopefully, they ask me back.
Good to see my old mates Rope Tin getting some good gigs. Alongside Napier’s own Bus Crash they will supporting The Feelers @ The Cabana on January 12th 2018. More details here > Rock on brothers.
Not much going on for Skedæddle at the moment, have been enjoying playing bass guitar for local Napier band Rope Tin. Featuring Glen Kilmister, (guitar and vocals) Gary Jackson (drums) and Pete Hamilton (keyboard) and when available Matt Baker (guitar) Rope Tin is an originals band with all the music written by Glen Kilmister. Post punk sensibilities and lyrics that cover a range of topics from American politics to classic film characters. Original and entertaining.
You can catch Rope Tin this Thursday 26th of October 2017 @ The Cabana along with other local acts such as The Reprobates, Groove Foundation, Ivan Saywer and more playing for the Operation Hamburg event. For more details, visit the Cabana Website.
