The Hellbilly Hop, Auckland's first and only Rockabilly/Psychobilly and Ska night promises an evening of high energy music for all the lovers of that dirty Rock'n'roll and Ska.

Live performances:

The Southern Diplomats
The most red hot and rockist band in New Zealand are back and this is your chance to see them live in Auckland. Playing genuine 1950's style, raw, Rockabilly you won't be able to stop your feet from bopping n slapping on the dance floor.

Featuring Psychobilly legend on the slap bass, Simon Crowfoot (Torment, Demented and The Crowfoot Conspiracy), accompanied by Verne Bigwood and Brad Collins two very accomplished musicians in their own right. Big Si's talent is one of New Zealand's best-kept secrets but he regularly returns to Europe/Uk to play rockin' festivals.

Support TBC.

DJ Mashup, The G-Man vs Skin and Bone.

The G-Man
Celebrating 30 years as one of the UK's top Psychobilly/Neo Rockabilly DJ's... Glenn has come all the way from England to play you the latest toons and some old greats.

One of the notorious "Klub Foot Twins" he has been DJing the Psycho/Rockin scene since its earliest days. The Big Rumble, Dingwalls, Ace Cafe, Speedfreaks Balls, Bedlam, Pompey Rumble and umpteen other Weekenders, festivals, gigs, tattoo shows and car shows etc. too many to list. To commemorate this year he has put together an Album, it features some great tracks old and new with some exclusive releases from bands he has worked with, (video to come). A limited number of vinyl records will be available on the night.

DJ Skin and Bone
No introduction needed, weighing in at 2000 tonnes of TNT the Selector himself. Auckland's top Ska Dee jay will be keeping you skanking into the small hours at this late licensed venue. Vic has DJ'd many a successful night at the Thirsty Dog and other venues. He has a hardened following who like to pack the dance floor, skanking all night to sounds of Ska.
