Introducing The Flaming Mudcats
“Blues sunny side up, easy -over, spicy or funky it’s all on the menu with these guys.”

A firm favourite in Auckland’s Blues scene, The Flaming Mudcats are a band that is well versed on what it takes to please a crowd, exhibiting levels of professionalism and musicianship that makes it easy to become a dedicated fan.

It’s as distinctive as it is powerful, and has been influenced by a diversity of musical styles, which manifests itself into a unique musical hybrid as the band swings and shuffles taking you back to another time.
While their music may sound vintage, their attitude is definitely current.

Harmonica ricochets through the mix, incorporated with Jimmie Vaughan and Ike Turner-inspired guitar licks and backed by the band’s hard working rhythm section (who are neither too loud or too showy), prove that the Mudcats are a band attentive to detail and which puts a premium on ensemble playing; a tradition that is rapidly becoming obscured and in a way which is rarely heard today.
They confidently move through different components of the blues — shuffles, soul, funk, four on the floor rock and roll and low down blues.

It’s plain to see right away that these guys love the music they make together.
The Flaming Mudcats play the blues not just like they mean it, but like they have no choice in the matter.
Anyone who argues that good blues is getting hard to find has never heard of this band… chances are you couldn’t find a tighter good time band.

Their mission is to smile in your face and then kick you in the ass, musically speaking.
They succeed.
Audiences have bruises to prove it!

Everyone can identify with the Mudcat’s brand of blues; it’s just that not everyone knows it.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Little Walter, Jimmie Vaughan, William Clarke, George Smith, Doug MacLeod

The band is fronted on vocals and harmonica by Craig Bracken with Doug Bygrave providing the six string firepower. Anchoring these two, is drummer Ian Thomson and “newbie” bassist Chris “Kit” Parfitt. With two highly-regarded albums of mostly original material, – 2011’s Gave You What You Wanted” and 2013’s “Mistress”, these guys are just getting started.
Formed in 2008 in Auckland, the Flaming Mudcats are now regarded to be one of New Zealand’s premier blues acts. They have taken their show to festivals and clubs throughout NZ, Australia, USA and the Pacific Islands. Their energetic live blues sets blend original material and covers drawn from their eclectic influences….a raw life potion of killer grooves, blazing licks and harp wizardry. Butt-shakin belters to soulful grinders with everything in between….welcome to the Flaming Mudcats show.

The Award Winning Recliner Rockers, an immensely entertaining and popular act that have toured NZ, playing at The Hokitika Wild Foods Festival, Whitianga Scallop Festival, Burt Munroe Festival Invercargill,Beach Hop, Kowhai Festival Warkworth, Rotorua Blues Festival Kumeu classic car show,and top corporate events around The Country....and much more!

They have Recently won the Face TV best Group of the Year Award 2016

The Recliner Rockers history begins in 2005 when Al and Geoff were playing together in a covers band and started talking about their love of rockabilly, blues and other roots music.

Putting on a colourful, energetic show just came naturally with Al's seriously dynamic guitar playing and Geoff's crazy spinning double bass acrobatics.

Along with Steve's flamboyant drumming and Bruce's smooth sax style, their flare for showmanship truly matches their musical prowess.

The first gig of note was the Whangamata Beach Hop in 2006, where the venue they played was filled to capacity and people were being turned away from the door. The Recliner Rockers with their

repertoire of covers and originals quickly became a favourite and have been invited back every year since.
Auckland based -Rockabilly-Roots-Rock n Roll Band!
AL LAVIS - GUITAR... & VOCALS. Ex Sly Groovers veteran of stage and studio both here in NZ and the U.S. Al is well known for his smooth bluesy vocals and blistering guitar solos that'll leave you gasping
GEOFF FITZPATRICK - ELECTRIC & UPRIGHT BASS. Geoff has toured and played bass throughout NZ including being part of support acts for the recent Simple Minds tour and with Voodoo Kreepers at ex Stray Cats, Slim Jim Phantom’s Auckland show. Watch out for his energetic double bass balancing act.


A working drummer since the age of fifteen, both as band member and hired session player, Steve has toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe and Scandinavia, playing literally thousands of shows, in venues ranging from clubs, indoor theatres and arenas, to football stadiums and outdoor amphitheaters. Steve has appeared at major festivals including Glastonbury (UK), Latitude (UK) Reggae Sun Ska (France), Graspop (Belgium) and South BySouth West (Austin Texas). His Radio/TV appearances include Channel 4 (UK), Sky TV, BBC Radio1 - Live From Maida Vale studios and BBC2’s Later Live With Jools Holland. Steve has been a tutor columnist for both of the UK’s best-selling drummers magazines, ‘Rhythm’ and ‘Drummer’, and worked on recording projects in Los Angeles produced by two Grammy Award winners, Meredith Brookes and Nile Rodgers. Despite, or maybe because of, all of this, he finds it impossible to retain a pair of sunnies for any respectable length of time.
