The Strait Shooters
Sunday, 14 August 2016 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
When Ramblin’ Rick Stringer and Warwick ‘Electrolux’ Murray first met at the 2011 Fiji Jazz & Blues Fest an instant friendship and musical camaraderie was formed.
Now they are thrilled to bring you ‘The Strait Shooters’ so named because half the band live in Wellington and the others in Queenstown – so a lot of time has been spent shooting back and forth across New Zealand’s Cook Strait!
This band is a collaboration between The Federation and Strange Brew, and brings to life their shared musical stylings in a hot mix of funk, blues and soul.
Lee van der Schuit joins the band to lend her high energy vocals and BV’s to the line-up; Ramblin’ Rick Stringer vocals, keys, harp; Warwick ‘Electrolux’ Murray vocals, guitar, ukulele, harp; Aaron ‘Funky Chief’ Nonoa bass, vocals; Mark ‘Tom Tom’ Thomas drums.
This band will get you ‘Shakin What Ya Mama Gave Ya!’ – and Rick and Warwick both play a mean blues harp so look out for a little duelling harmonicas in their set!
