Stingray, the Jump Jiive swing bluesy band that’s been playing around Auckland for the last12 years have built up a enthusiastic following.
Stingray have the classic blues band line-up - bass, drums, guitar and harmonica –but they don't do the obvious.
Perhaps it’s the leaning toward shuffles and jump blues with their underlying triplet feels, and no songs about Chicago or the Mississippi. But there’s some rocky tunes to go with the roll and there are original songs about the universal themes of blues – love and loss, trust and heartache, of money to spend and when it’s all gone...
Brian Glamuzina - harmonica and vocals - a genuine and committed long time stalwart of honest, give it heaps, gut-bucket blues - once you’ve seen him performing there is no doubt of his fervour for the genre. Justin Roys on drums - Sandy Henderson bass . Gary Morris – guitar – newest and the youngest in this group – has been a member of the Mojovibe Blues Band and the Jukes and brings to Stingray his sharp biting guitar playing and strong vocals.

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.
Influences 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.

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.

STEVE ROONEY - DRUMS
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.
