Gig Information

STEVE and AINSLEY APIRANA

Steve Apirana is one of the finest gospel musicians currently working in Australasia. He is a gifted communicator, highly skilled guitarist and vocalist, with an extraordinary sense of humour. Specialising in blues and gospel, he has played alongside Daddy Cool, Black Sabbath, Split Enz, Osibisa, Fairport Convention and Average White Band, as part of the seventies band Butler. He was one of The Velvettes, sixties spoof rock band from Christchurch and has toured solo for more than twenty years as far afield as the UK, USA, and Europe. Steve captivates audiences in a way that very few can. His honesty, self - depreciating humour and excellent musicianship has audiences totally absorbed. He has released four albums over the 35 years of his career, the latest, This Wretched Man, in November 2011.

Ainsley is mostly known from her performances with Steve but is herself a singer and songwriter. She recorded 12 of her own songs on an album called Autumn in 2001 and has just released a new album Cappuccinos and Vanilla Squares. Ainsley joins Steve with vocals, guitar, whistles and flutes to bring you a collection of songs from their six albums and some of their favourite covers. Their mission is to encourage and uplift your spirit as they share their stories and songs and minister out of thirty years of life on the road, thirty years of marriage and all the triumphs and struggles they have met along the way.

Steve and Ainsley play regularly in churches, cafes, halls, prisons, schools, and homes, traveling anywhere they are invited.
