Knightshade: Knightshade began in Te Puke around 1982 playing their own brand of rock that featured Dual lead guitars and great melodies. With different members changing over the years Wayne Elliott is the only original member still in the band today. In 1996 after a number of international recording contracts had ended and constant touring the band went their own ways to follow different career goals. It was not until 2012 that the same guys released a new song and Rik Bernards, Wayne and Craig Pollock decided to reform with the intention of live performances. They auditioned for a rhythm section and Scott Williams on drums along with Neil McDonald on Bass made up what is Knightshade today. They will be performing all the favourites as well as new songs along with 8 Steps to Madness and Spex and Gary.

8 Steps to Madness are a Cambridge based band formed in 2012 by Peter Lewis (vocals) and Peter Hughes (guitar). These two had been playing together for 20+ years in cover-bands (Jury, Bad Habits, Blue Vision), and decided it was time to push themselves out of their comfort zone and do what they’ve always wanted to do….get their own material out of their jam room and into the public domain.

Spex & Gary: Spex is well known throughout New Zealand as a top musician and entertainer with a musical career spanning over 25 years. Gary is from the UK and has lived in New Zealand for nearly 7 years. In the UK he played with various rock bands for the past 30 years. Their music; acoustic guitars and vocals-easy listening classics from three decades, performed in their own way
