They opened for Alanis Morrissette at the 2018 Summer Concert Tour and Bonnie Tyler at 2017 Summer Concert Tour, claimed the RNZ Battle of the Covers Band in 2018 and Outstanding Entertainment at the Wedding Industry Awards in 2019.
Lead singer Bonnie Hurunui is loved for her larger than life stage presence and highly impressive sculpted hair. Her soulful voice and magnetic personality captivate every audience member. The masterful Dean Tinning lays out groovy beats and you can’t help but move your feet. Nicknamed “The Viking” his suitcase bass drum, cajon and percussion practically drives you to the dance floor.
Posessing equal measures of cool and quiet, legally blind Michael White can stand on his double bass while playing big phat funky lines. With a cheeky personality and rather dashing smile to boot, Nathan Boston on lead guitar knows how to truly light up the fret board.
They genuinely love performing and every moment of their journey and dynamic shows reflect this. With a stage that lights up with musical wizardry, laughter and love, it’s easy to see why audiences of every age fall for them wholeheartedly, their music and their story.
