Gig Information

To celebrate the life and music of the late Andrew Brough, who died last year, we present a night of Andrew's songs from The Orange, Straitjacket Fits and Bike.

This short tour is in response to many requests from fans of Andrew's music who were unable to attend the sold out gig on May 7th of this year at Auckland's Wine Cellar.

Family, friends, guest musicians and past bandmates will get together to celebrate the music of one of NZ's most-loved songwriters.

The music will be performed by Tristan Mason (Bike) Justin McLean (Roulettes, Bike), Don Brough, Darren Stedman (Verlaines), Tenzin Mullin (Jay Clarkson and the Containers), John McDermott, Peter Bragan (The Orange) and Charlotte Yates.

Justin McLean, step-brother to Andrew, followed Andrew's career closely. Justin played in the first version of Bike in Dunedin in the early 90s. Many of the songs that ended up on Take in the Sun and the EPs were played in this version of Bike, in various stages of completion, says Justin. I spent
many hours learning and rehearsing them with Andrew, and became familiar with his playing style. Over the last year I've spent a lot of time listening to and learning Andrew's songs. This process has been fascinating and challenging. His singing and songwriting ability is widely recognised, but he was also a very innovative guitarist, both sonically and musically. Andrew's songs sound fantastic, live and loud.

Roulettes will support, with a short set. Justin: Andrew was a big supporter of my music in the early years, from showing me how to organise a gig to how to keep working on improving a song, and he produced some of our early recordings. I owe him a lot, musically, and this is another opportunity
to say thanks in the best way I know how. Darren (drums, Verlaines) and I were in our first band together, and we both experienced Andrew's guidance. And we're very happy to have Tenzin on bass. Several songs in Roulettes' set were inspired by Andrew and last year's Roulettes EP 'Rocket to You' was dedicated to Andrew.
