T-Bone Announce 'Good 'n Greasy' Album Release Tour

T-Bone Announce 'Good 'n Greasy' Album Release Tour

Samantha Cheong / Tuesday 24th May, 2022 3:57PM

Fresh off the back of a successful crowdfunding campaign, Aotearoa-based folk / blues / bluegrass crew T-Bone have fried up a batch of good-time Americana (and Kiwiana) tunes to bring to venues across the North Island, celebrating the forthcoming release of debut album Good ’n Greasy on 17th June. Bringing together members from such far-flung locales as New Jersey, the Far North, Dublin, Taranaki and Karori, the five-piece group created their record about “food, playing music, new beginnings, love lost and found” in Newtown’s Surgery Studios after seven years of musical get-togethers. They'll be joined on the winter journey by seasoned US 'punk American' artist John Oszajca — tuck into the tour details below...

Press release:

T-Bone have brought their influences of zydeco, old-time, blues, bluegrass and folk to this debut album, which although has strong Americana flavours, also has a distinct Kiwi folk feel. The close vocal harmonies and fiery instrumentals on guitars, mandolin, banjo and fiddles will have your toes tapping and you’ll find yourself harmonising as you listen.

The members of T-Bone are about as eclectic as the group’s influences; a mandolin playing ex-chef from the Far North, a fiddle playing wine importer from New Jersey, a Dublin-born spearfishing songwriter, a guitar slinging laboratory assistant from Taranaki and a gardening double bassist from Karori.

The band will be touring the North Island promoting their debut album Good 'n Greasy which was recorded in September 2021 after seven years of meeting most Monday nights and eating, drinking, jamming and writing together.

Their debut album will be released on June 17th, two weeks prior to the band heading out on their North Island headline release tour. The seven date tour is set to be the perfect showcase of the magic and energy that comes when these five exceptional musicians are on stage together, performing!

T-Bone are over the moon to be joined on the road by internationally renowned American musician John Oszajca. John has toured across the United States performing with such artists as Jewel, Brian Setzer, Eve 6, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Hillary Duff, Beth Hart and many others. In 2010 John moved to the Far North of NZ with his family, where he continues to write, record, and perform. John will be having some fun with the T-Bone boys bringing a ‘Punk Americana’ sound to the show.
