Cool! It's a great little country,lots of winding hilly country with mostly pretty good roads.But having never been overseas i cant compare but,T.V allows me to dream.The South Island is one of the most scenic places in the world,but, I live in the north island and it's damn good here too.There are many organised Hog rides over here aswell,quite a following actually but i've never been much of a follower I prefer to hit the rode alone or with acouple of close mates.

Welcome from Boulder, Colorado, USA! Another lover of the blues here, though my personal guitar playing sticks to the acoustic blues. But don't let that fool you...I try to wail away that way, too. :)

Thats cool, I have been teachng myself fingerstyle slide guitar for a while and i'm now intending to apply myself a bit more,it is great music.I also like playing harmonica and try to combine the two.It can be difficult finding time to practice tho!

We started as a Madness tribute band, but have grown to a classic Ska cover band because we get more gigs that way. We're playing at Lords Cricket ground on Fri 16th May during the England v New Zealand test match!!

Well....thats no mean feat.No cricket lover myself,but thats a pretty cool gig man!I'm into the blues,Chicago style moreso,but in the eighties I used to listen to bands like the SPECIALS and SPECIAL AKA but i'm no expert.BLUES is what i like now and it s just becoming more so as time go by.

I do a lot of finger-picking stuff, though I'm out of practice currently. Style...hmmm...the best way to describe it is playing music on an acoustic that would normally be played on an electric. I like bringing something closer to an electric style to an acoustic sound. I've been playing for around 15 years, but most of that was occasional. I have no formal training and can't read music, but I can play by ear. I just like to mess around, mostly, meaning playing in an unstructured setting. :o

Wow Colin, awesome! That'd be great addition to test cricket and at Lords, no less!

Cheers Trace. We're really looking forward to it...especially a guarenteed audience of many thousand people. We'll hopefully pick up a few gigs off the back of it as well.
