Roomfulla Blues invites you to feel some authentic rocking blues gospel with The Gospel According to the Blues this Thursday 5 Feb.

A truly unique experience. Nothing churchy here. Just plenty of field holla cries for deliverance from hell on earth. The gift those slaves gave us lives on in dark redemptive grooves and a boogie woogie left hand in a rich vein of golden grooves from New Orleans Bo-Diddly, Chicago funk, to Memphis Rock.

The 10 piece band is made up of fine Wellington musicians and singers featuring stunning harmonies from ‘The Tempests‘, and solo performances from Pip Payne, Jade Eru and Lynley Chrisstoffeson.

Full Lineup:

Richard ‘ Hitman’ Te One – drums
Miklin ‘steady’ Halstead – bass
Chris ‘slide’ Amour – electric gat
Wayne ‘boogie’ Mason – keys
Vocals: the Tempests are Lynley ‘get right’ Christoffersen and Jade ‘take me here’ Eru
Pip ‘Pops’ Payne – gat ‘n vocals
Possible guest to be confirmed Bob ‘the Leslie’ Smith.
The Gospel According to the Blues will be covering timeless classics through to contemporary interpretations of music from the likes of The Staple Singers, Mavis Staples, Aaron Neville, Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley.

Blues to gospel to blues – May the circle be unbroken!
