Red Dog Saloon Band with Special Guest, Pip Payne

Friday, 14 June 2024 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Wellington blues bands

This will be a special evening with two of our founders sharing the stage; Dougal Speir and Pip Payne.

The Red Dog Saloon Band is one of our regular acts. All four members are hugely experienced blues players, who continue to play really good blues. They’ve got their own arrangements of some classics, and some not-so-classic blues tunes.

Dougal Speir on guitar, Dave Murphy on vocals and guitar, Roger Watkins (drums), and Elliot Fuimaono (bass).

Pip Payne is a tremendous slide guitar player using a resonator guitar, a classic old blues guitar popular in Louisiana, and the Mississippi Delta. It was used by players like Son House and Bukka White (B B King’s cousin).

Pip has some great arrangements of modern tunes, like some Stones and Little Feat songs, using the sound of the Delta Blues. This is what the Stones could have sounded like when jamming the blues.

This will be a fantastic evening of blues.

Come and join us.
