Lie to Me

Lie To Me are
set to perform at Roomfulla Blues this Thursday 9 April songs from their latest two albums, ‘Lock Up Your Grannies‘ and ‘What The Hell’s‘ in which Wayne Finch returns to his roots playing revitalised authentic blues classics and originals.

Joined by musicians Wayne Mason, Bernard Mesmer and Warwick Halcrow, Lie To Me are stirring the local music scene with live performances in the Wellington region. The group’s sound is influenced not just by blues, but swing, country, and R&B and they play a mixture of originals and classics such as Hootchie Cootchie ManAll Along The WatchtowerSeason of the WitchStormy Monday, and Dylan’s  It Takes a Lot to laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry. Lead guitarist Bernard Messmer says, Lie To Me’s music, “makes you listen, and want to dance sometimes as well”.

Wayne Finch has been writing and performing music for 55 years, starting out in the folk scene. One of his highlights was a solo gig at The Great Ngaruawahia Music Festival  on the same stage with the likes of Black Sabbath, and an unknown group at that time, Split Enz. Finch’s first electric band was, Ginger Bread Head which gained notoriety in the 70’s with residencies at venues such as Chez Paree and Lucifers as well as writing and performing the soundtrack for the Richard Phelps film, Threshold.

Band Lineup:

Wayne Finch – Acoustic guitar/vocals
Bernard Mesmer – Electric guitar/lap steel
Warwick Halcrow – Electric bass
Wayne Mason – Keyboards

The gig will kick-off with an opener by Blues Club favourite, Al Witham playing guitar driven blues originals with a country feel as well as covering the blues of John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters, amongst many.
