The Remarkables are a lively acoustic trio, who will entertain you with a unique mixture of jazz swing, blues, country and bluegrass, sung and played with a bull fiddle, a New Zealand guitar and a smokin’ bluegrass banjo.
Be prepared for a happy surprise when you hear their treatment of familiar tunes and new favourites. Expect anything from bass slappin’ fast tunes, to thoughtful ballads and anything else that happens to have captured the band's imagination.
Neil Finlay and Peter Parnham are known for the foot tapping blues of Stop and Listen, Bryan Christianson is borrowed from award winning bluegrass band Wires and Wood, while the band is named for the South Island mountain range that none of them have climbed.
The guest performance will be preceded by a variety of club singers in the first half. See the organisers if you'd like to sing or play.
