Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band are heading to the Boathouse ready to 'rock the joint'.

Known for her soulful vocal delivery, on-stage energy and emphasis on entertainment Laura says “I’m all about putting on a show. I’m lucky enough to be playing with some men who are huge talents, they've all played many a juke joint in their time".

One of those talents is Wayne Mason, a well-known Kiwi songwriter in his other life, also one hell of a stonkin’ boogie blues piano player. Look out for 'Mad Professor' style wild solos with a wonderful sense of abandon. John O'Connor on guitar has worked with many of New Zealand’s well-known musicians and is considered one of New Zealand’s guitar legends. He has played and recorded with many well known artists including BB King, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley.In the engine room George Barris (long time NZ player, of early fame in the band 'Highway') on mellow upright bass and Pete Cogswell on Back Porch Drums.

You can expect a little Etta James, some Bonnie Raitt, some Muddy Waters and many more favourites, a whole lot of cheek, some fine playing and a good old southern time on the back porch.
