Back Porch Blues back at the Bent Horseshoe
Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band will bring their ‘show’ of high energy, cheek and vocal strength back to the Bent Horseshoe on Saturday 22 June.

Laura celebrates her band, giving them licence to shine and shine they do, Wayne Mason, of course also known for being one of our much-loved singer songwriters, here is the master of boogie ‘burning it up’ on the keys and adding his iconic voice to the vocal mix. Think Fats Domino, think Dr John, think Professor Longhair and you’ll be in the right honky tonk.

John O’Connor will be ‘eating it up’ on lead guitar, never self-indulgent – just soulful and astonishing. He’s played with everyone along the way, from BB King to Kiri Te Kanawa.

The rhythm section brings a warm acoustic volume with George Barris on tasty upright bass and Peter Cogswell on the ‘back porch’ drums proving that you don’t need to be loud to groove.

The lads offer four-part vocal harmony to Laura’s lead, combining often for a lush gospel blues sound.

Expect to hear a little Francine Reed, Fats Domino, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Dixon, some of Laura’s own and others she can put her stamp on, all with their roots in the blues.

This band are dynamic, masterful and all about entertainment. A combination of ‘old hands’ who have been making music a long time, absolutely revelling in the playing.

Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band at the Bent Horseshoe (Hokowhitu Bowling Club), Saturday 22 June, $25 show starts 7.30pm.
