The Trio are Andrew London, Kirsten London and Brian Omundsen.
Laura Collins & the Back Porch Blues Band
Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band are dynamic, masterful and all about entertainment. Laura, with vocal strength, moves between ballsy blues and soulful ballads. Wayne Mason, master of boogie ‘burns it up’ on the keys, John O’Connor ‘eats it up’ on lead guitar, George Barris plays warm upright bass and Pete Cogswell ‘puts the car in drive’ on back porch drums. Together they present a joyful celebration of why we would ‘keep the music live’.
A true showbiz legend in NZ, having founded several iconic Kiwi bands over the years Wayne went on to form ‘The Warratahs’ in the 1980s becoming a household name after the success of Wayne’s song ‘Hands of My Heart’. Wayne will present his own repertoire of original songs as well as contributing rollicking Fats Domino inspired keyboard to ‘Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band’.
