Kia Ora Tauranga.

Cricket Farm are touring this summer in support of our debut album 'Bending Spoons', and we're stoked to be playing at The Jam Factory! We'll be joined by our mate Regan Perry; who is an incredible singer songwriter and a real mean guitarist. Come and let us sing you through Saturday evening.

Charming indie-folk/gypsy jazz three-piece Cricket Farm perform an intimate and entertaining show, featuring finely crafted songs, varied instrumentation, excellent stage presence, and plenty of audience interaction.

"Hard truths sung in a soft voice, accompanied by plucky Chet Atkins inspired nylon string guitar and ukulele, and coloured with clarinet, acoustic gypsy jazz guitar & weird buzzy electric guitar."

We will make you laugh, we might say 'F*ck' (but without the star) and also, 'I cried three times' - sad/happy punter.

Cricket Farm’s debut offering, Bending Spoons is a thoughtful and sweet-toned body of work, described by the band as “music for hopeless romantic conspiracy theorists”.

Made up of multi-disciplinary artist Hayley Robertson, Sims Ross (Yebiisu, The Murderchord) and Joel Vinsen (Callum Gentleman, Panhandlers, Ijebu Pleasure Club), Cricket Farm pull together their eclectic mix of musical backgrounds to create a vibrant and sunny 12-track album that combines elements of indie-folk and gypsy jazz with all the raw honesty of punk.

“The album is the odds and ends of our combined mental note taking. It’s very simple... just sifting metaphysical gunk.” - Hayley Robertson

"Cricket Farm sing so sweetly but then there are these intense lyrics. And their dynamic on stage is magic. It’s just really good. No really. I’m serious. It is really just very good." - Rohan Evans (Wine Cellar)

"One of the best shows & audience rapport I’ve seen here; reminds me of the Nukes." - Audience member at Eggsentric Cafe Whitianga

"What the f*** is that instrument the singer played and rapped to? that is the singularly most brilliant performance of a piece of music by one person that I've seen in a long time! crazy great." - Dave Alley

"Sounds like Django Reinhardt, but with more arms." - Will Saunders

Mount Local Roots Musician Regan Perry recently played Auck Ska Fest and has opened for jimmy cliff/katchafire/trinity roots/cornerstone roots/black seeds/hollie smith. His last album 'Maui' features Junior Marvin of Bob Marley and the Wailers.
