Get on out to see 3 of the best rock acts play the Kings Arms.
Mother Motor is a rock band based in Auckland, New Zealand. They have been quietly perfecting their sound, and are now ready to hit the local and international music scene. With influences like AC/DC, Metallica and Led Zeppelin they deliver high energy rock n roll. A 3-piece band with Dan Lucas on guitar/vocals, Jack Fajner on bass/BV, and Mark Dingle on drums/BV.
Straight out of Henderson Valley, Filth Dog is a raw melting pot of hard driving rock & roll, dirty grooves and slow burnin' blues that will set your bar room on fire and get your mojo working.
"Stone rollin, wind blowin';
the dog and bone in the city of sin;
woman stealin' my high feelin';
medicatin' on the whiskey and gin".
Sagan’s eye is a new hard rock band from Auckland. The 2 founding members, guitarist Daniel Thomas (Confessor, Powerlordz) and drummer Kev Curtin, had previously been in the band “Cosmic Plane”. After recording an album and completing a video, things looked on the up until the boys found themselves without a singer.
Daniel had a chance meeting at the Kings Arms with Brian Wilson, who has been known for years as a bass player and vocalist in bands such as Dry Ice, Naked Blade, Bastet and the Bonnevilles.
As Cosmic Plane had a bass player, Brian auditioned for lead vocalist and was to everyone’s surprise (including his) welcomed into the band. Unfortunately not long after, the bass player decided to leave for personal reasons and the band was back to square one.
Daniel was able to enlist the services of bassist Fui Groovenasty (Confessor, Miho Wada, Ayotollah of Riffolla) and the core of the band was set. Although the band was complete, there was something missing, and it wasn’t until well-known session keyboardist/guitarist Richard Breed joined that the final element was found.
With a new line-up, new direction and new sound, the Cosmic Plane days had well and truly finished and “Sagan’s eye” was born.
A mixture of traditional hard rock and modern funky grooves; the band’s main focus is to simply write great songs that will make you listen, make you think and above all make you boogie.
