Gig Information

Kara Gordon & The Wreckage is blues, rock and shred with a punch to the head. The Kiwi guitar hero has, until now, been a live phenomenon, largely in New Zealand but occasionally in Australia, with some of the world’s finest dribbling over themselves at his exceptional ability.

Joe Satriani has described him as ‘‘one of the most prolific guitarists I’ve ever seen’’, Living Colour founder Vernon Reid dubbed him ‘‘Jimi Hendrix reincarnated’’, while Jason Becker, one of the greatest shredders of all time, emailed him after he saw a video on YouTube to say he really thought Gordon’s playing was great. That’s high praise, indeed.


Velvetland is a 4-piece that master a blend of driving 70s style power pop, 60s melodic jangle and 80s US/GB/NZ indie with moments of psychedelic ambience and atmospheric guitars. Debut album currently in the works at Depot Sound Recording Studio with a release date set for early 2018.

Formed from the remains of indie four piece Aspens, Auckland based Velvetland are four members - Steve Wikiriwhi (lead guitar), Owen Bradley (drums), Jordan Bradly (bass) and Alex Baker (guitar, vocals).
