Keeping the blues 'live' at Rumpy

Wellington based Laura Collins and her Back Porch Blues Band will be keeping the blues 'live' on the front porch at Rumpy on Saturday 17th March.

Laura, who is up front from the very start, with high energy, cheek and vocal strength leads and celebrates her band - and gives them licence to shine. And shine they do, with Wayne Mason, master of boogie 'burning it up' on the keys and adding his iconic voice to the vocal mix and John O'Connor, 'eating it up' on lead guitar, never self-indulgent - just soulful and astonishing.

The rhythm section brings a warm acoustic volume with George Barris on tasty upright bass and Peter Cogswell on the 'back porch' drums proving that you don't need to be loud to groove. Expect to be out of your seats, this band just swings.

You will likely hear a little Fats Domino, Beth Hart, Bonnie Raitt, Nina Simone, John Lee Hooker, some of Laura's own and others she can put her stamp on, all with their roots in the blues.

This band is a combination of 'old hands' who have been making music a long time, absolutely revelling in the playing. A night out with Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band is a joyful celebration of why we would 'keep the music live'.


Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band, Rumpy, Saturday 17th March, 2018, show from 7.30pm, $20 on the door. Rumpy - 212 Argyll Road, Otane. For gig information please contact: Mary KIppenberger or Peter Charlton-Jones 06 8568367 021550287 marykipp@hotmail.com
