The line-up:

Lance McNichol - Guitar

Lance has been around the Auckland music scene for 65 years now and has just received his telegram from the Queen. Very few people realise that Lance suffers from a chronic case of niceness. So far therapy to try and counter this has been to build his own house, raise a family and make a living as a musician, but to no avail. Lance's niceness reputation is widely known and the prejudice that it creates causes him no amount of coyness and indifference. This disability gives his blues playing a unique edge. Did I mention that he's a nice bloke?

If you wanna have a dance
We got Lance!

Colin Jones - Vocals/Drums

Born during the Blitz, Colin began his life straight from the school of hard knocks. As soon as he could walk he started up his own stall selling whelks before moving on to selling dodgy goods in a lockup under some tube arches. He eventually played in various bands around London and his style was mimicked by a budding young singer by the name of Joe Cocker! Colin moved to NZ during the height of its hippy generation where he quickly got 'stoned' with cement and aggregates. He even tutored Tim Shadbolt in the art of concrete mixer towage. Ironically now it is he that often impersonates Joe Cocker which is depicted in his self-written 'Pendulum Blues'.

If you wanna Rock Your Soul
We got Col!

Simon Sheward - Vocals/Bass

Simon is the baby of the band but has gleaned a lot from the experienced elders he works with. He has played bass since puberty and chose to mature gracefully by moving from electric to acoustic. Much persecuted for his gingerness in his youth, he has a particular affinity for the blues. He has played with various Auckland musos and some London ones also. Simon hopes one day to be buried in a double bass.

If you're missing Bill Wyman
We got Simon!

See you there!
