Gospel According to the Blues

Thursday, 9 March 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Roomfulla Blues invites you to feel some authentic rocking blues gospel with The Gospel According to the Blues this Thursday 9 March.

A truly unique experience. Nothing churchy here. Just plenty of field holla cries for deliverance from hell on earth. The gift those slaves gave us lives on in dark redemptive grooves and a boogie woogie left hand in a rich vein of golden grooves from New Orleans Bo-DiddlyChicago funk, to Memphis Rock. The Gospel According to the Blues will be covering timeless classics through to contemporary interpretations of music from the likes of The Staple Singers, Mavis Staples, Aaron Neville, Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley.

The seven piece band is made up of fine Wellington musicians and singers featuring stunning harmonies from ‘The Tempests‘, and solo performances from Pip Payne, Jade Eru and Lynley Chrisstoffeson.

Full Lineup:

Richard Te One – drums
Miklin Halstead – bass
Chris  Amour – electric gat
Wayne Mason – keys
Vocals: the Tempests are Lynley Christoffersen and Jade Eru
Pip Payne – Vocals
