The Grownups are Kapiti musicians James Cameron, Andrew London and Wayne Mason, who play original country-rock and western swing-influenced songs, culled from their time in Cameron's Velox Brothers, London's Hot Club Sandwich, and The Cattlestops, a five-piece group with whom the duo recorded two albums a decade ago.

The second of these, 2007's Back To Rosetta Road, gained a Tui nomination for Best Country Album and contributed to the soundtrack of the popular movie 'Second Hand Wedding'.

'The GrownUps is an opportunity to get those songs back out there' says London, 'and also some new ones that we haven't found a home for yet'.

'We're both products of the baby boomer rock era, having grown up playing the usual blues-infused Beatles and Rolling Stones covers' says Cameron, ''but we both gravitated to singing jazz standards quite early on, and are enthusiastic fans of western swing, a hybrid of jazz and country music that evolved in the South West USA in the 1930s'. Consequently the material swerves through jazz, blues, country and traditional rock'n'roll, making categorisation difficult.

Cameron and London have enlisted veteran Wayne Mason to join on keyboard, who one day hopes to be allowed to play one of his own songs.
