A little bit about the Ebb ‘n’ Flo NZ members

Marley Ruxton and Marty Rudolph
Maori heritage
Te uri-o-tai is a hapu of Te Rarawa which was established in the late 1920’s and in doing so provided pawarenga its own specific identity. We are from the Nghapui - Te Rarawa the pawarenga people. Our great-grandparents were Martini Ruawhe and Erana Ada Kereama who had seven children - Tamariki Tui Edward -Maera-Thomas-Myra-wilford-Marama Tahi Rosina. Marty has been playing in bands since the age of 14, his dad sneaking him into pubs to do the gigs. Marley his cuz was also shown the music ropes from an early age by their dad Uncle Mason Edward Rudolph, and have always loved music. We are very humbled to get the opportunity to come and share our music with our people as it is New Zealand Reggae that has had a huge influence on our lives, Katchafire, The Herbs etc. We can’t wait to play alongside such amazing New Zealand talent such as Willie Hona and Zion Hill. Would love to see you all there! Jah Bless.

Reo Hita (Lead Singer)
Maori Heritage
Kia ora my names Reo Hita. Born in Hastings, I'm of Ngapuhi and Rongowhakaata decent. I spent my early years growing up in Whakatu and Tamatea, attended Hato Paora College and later, Whangarei Boy's High. I now live in Coffs Harbour, a town on the Mid North Coast of NSW and work in youth support. When I’m not jamming with the band I like to just chill with the whanau.

On lead vocals and percussion, I cut my teeth playing the pub circuit for about 8 years before hooking up with the Brothers and we formed Ebb ‘n’ Flo. It’s been a massive ride so far and is gathering momentum. Having the opportunity to play original music you've had a hand in creating is such an uplifting experience and to have people appreciate your vibe is very humbling. All eight members bring their own feel to the music whether it be Reggae & Soul to Hip Hop, Funk & Rock. I think it’s a sound of many colours.
All of us are very excited, proud and thankful for the opportunity to bring Ebb ‘n Flo to Aotearoa and for some of us, well....we're coming home! It is truly a dream come true. We are very blessed to have so many awesome people tautoko us, special mention to brother Pango Winterburn and the promoter’s, venue's, the Zion Hill whanau, Willie Hona, our management team at Offbeat Operations Entertainment, and of course our families! Looking forward to catching up with lots of friends and family, and meeting heaps of new one’s! Hope to see you all there. We want to turn every show into a ‘House of Love’.

A few quotes about Ebb ‘n’ Flo
NZ Radio ‘G0 Feet’ host Nate Taiapa
I also feature in this episode tunes from Australian hip-hop, reggae, soul band, Ebb n Flo. I swear they are an undercover New Zealand band skankin it up in OZ! They sound so down-home to me, it’s as if they were created right here in Aotearoa
