The Blues Foundation is thrilled to announce that our band for December will be the Ranchsliders!

The Ranchsliders will play an evening of blues and boogie on Sunday 2 Dec. Doors open at 6.30 pm with the band starting at 7pm.

They will play two sets of original blues as well as their interpretations of some standards and lesser-known numbers.

The band’s impressive line-up features the rhythm section from the iconic Coalrangers band - drummer Allan Cattermole and bassist Geoff Farmar with keyboardist John Sanchez-Lloyd and guitarist Phil Doublet.

Allan Cattermole became interested in playing drums at age four. He has played professionally in both New Zealand with The Newz, and in Australia with the Domino Theory signed to WEA He continues to tour NZ as a session musician.

Bassist Geoff Farmar is a true storyteller. Originally a drummer, he is a multi-instrumentalist and a prolific writer of songs. Geoff was a founding member of Christchurch’s country rockers The Cowboys where he first joined forces with John Sanchez-Lloyd before forming the Tui Award-winning Coalrangers.

John Sanchez-Lloyd began his musical career peddling a harmonium with the band Blues Army Salvation when he was an art student in the late 1960s. A veteran of numerous musical liaisons as keyboardist and session musician, he performs, records and tours in the duo Lloyd & Doublet as well as The Coalrangers.

Phil Doublet is a professional musician and has played in many working bands and provided music as a multi-instrumentalist and backup vocalist for many recording artists. He is at home playing blues and is highly regarded guitarist keeping busy as a music teacher, session player, performer and composer.

Together, these amazing musicians will give you an evening of great blues music.

Cash at the door.
