Vic Singe, Carl Evensen, Alan Norman, Clinton Brown & Dave Murphy

They've been around for a while now, starting in the 60's & 70's. They've played in bands like Formyla, Kal-Q-Lated Risk, and Rockinghorse, The Warratahs and the Windy City Strugglers or they played with musicians like Sharon O'Neil, Renee Gayer, Clarence Gatemouth Brown and Champion Jck Dupree. They have the best part of 300 years of NZ music history in them with the voices and musicianship that comes from decades of being at the coal face, and now they come together to find a musical hoem in Rag Poets.

Playing songs by neil Young, Sam Cooke, The Springfields, The Beachboys, Hank Williams, Vince Gill and the Windy City Strugglers amongst others; they take old songs and create something new from them, also palying originals. Their style ranges from country and blues classics to 60's & 70's pop to folk music, roots, gospel and country rock, with the soaring notes and vocal harmonies, guitar-picking, squeeze boxing, drums and bass that goes with these.

They have all lived a few lives and have more than a few stories to tell, but mostly its about the music, keeping faith with it and having fun along the way.
