At Jack Hackett’s this Thursday we present the Fuimaono brand of sweet blues and powerful soul music. Band leader and bass player Elliot Fuimaono is a legend with Capital Blues.
Hopegene line up is:
Hope – vocals
Eugene – gat/vox
Jonathan – drums
Elliot – bass/vox
And Jebidiah Lesa – keys
Elliot says, “My daughter Hope and son Eugene are moving to Auckland for a year of studies, so it’s my last chance to play a gig with them for quite a while. They are both so good to work with.” Hope and Eugene have grown up around the blues club through Elliot and his friends, they have also completed the music course at Whitireia.
Jonathan, will be on drums, although his main focus at the moment is his little family. “He gave music away when his daughter was born and hadn’t played at all last year, so I asked him to play this gig because his brother and sister-in-law were moving away for a while, he sorted out a few important things, baby bath time,nap time, feeding time, and agreed to do this gig, it’s gone well so far” says Elliot. “I’m playing bass, so I have a lot to learn!“
Jebidiah Lesa is a local young man from P-Town who is playing keyboards. “Eugene asked him to play with the band so it’ll be a fun night”.
