It’s shaping up to be another great WellyFest at labour weekend. The guest list includes some of our favourite musicians and bands, just check out the Wellyfest website and look for 2018 Festival>guests.
At Wellyfest they have the Balladeer tent where you can grab a bite to eat and listen to some of the other musicians who are ready to entertain you. This is our big chance to shine with a half hour spot at 9pm on the opening night, Friday 19th. Although Steve can’t make it, Sue, Holly and Pete, will let fly with the redoubled energy, and if you are there you will surely enjoy it.
Triple layer vocals, vigorously wielded stringy thingies, and some plausible anecdotal evidence will be on trial Sunday, as the Skiffy Rivets unravel musical tales brazenly stolen from bluegrass, folk, old timey, and swing.
We’re excited to bring our music to the Whangateau Hall up near Leigh.
When you’ve got a beautiful wooden 110+ year old hall near Leigh with amazing acoustics what can you do but invite talented musicians to come play there? So asks the Whangateau Hall Folk Music and Social Club.
We’re in for a real treat. Here’s the recipe: take a measure of Americana, Texas swing, folk and bluegrass, and mix with rich harmonies for forty minutes on the Rafters stage to produce satisfying, authentic and entertaining music. What better way to start the weekend than with a meal of live music! Continue reading
We always have fun at cafe One2one and although Pete is usually seen playing bass, when Holly and Sue came over recently, suddenly we had enough of Pete & the Skiffy Rivets band to let fly with a few songs. After a couple of songs at full throttle harmony, there was loud calls for more, so naturally we obliged. That’s why we look at bit weird in this Facebook post – we are providing some vigorous visual cues for audience participation.
It was such fun we were invited back to play a set at guest for Mark Laurent.
