Gig Information

Auckland born and raised, Al moved to Dunedin in the 70’s and gigged with his four-piece Band working the hard yards of the Pub circuit and private functions. In the 80’s was based in Sydney with another line-up which included Jono Lonie and the drummer from the Dunedin band working the Pub circuit there for 18 months. Then the following 12 months still in Sydney as a Duo on the Wine Bar circuit. Throughout the different line-ups the Set Lists always included a high percentage of original songs along with the covers in the kiwi rock genre flavoured with country- rock.
Returning to Auckland, Al took a hiatus to hitch-up, raise kids and grow his property restoration business, then in 2018 after a burst of new inspiration started writing and recording new original songs.
Al’s songs offer a perceptive view about people and events in his life (friendships and work-place) and on a wider scale, about global events of the times as seen through younger eyes. The songs have a strong melodic approach, definitely worth a listen!!
Joining Al on back-up is Scotty Pearson - Drums, Alastair Dougal - Bass, John Olding - Guitar, BV’s and Jono Lonie - Mandolin, Fiddle.

acoustic/solo, blues, country/folk, rock
