Back Porching at Days Bay

Laura Collins and the Back Porch Band will be back at the Pavilion Cafe in Days Bay on Sunday 12th July, 6 - 8pm.

Laura Collins is a singer, a front person, a songwriter and most importantly an entertainer.

Along with Laura's originals you can expect to hear favourite covers from the likes of Mary Chapin Carpenter and Gillian Welch, some old blues from Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, new-old tunes from Van Morrison and Joni Mitchell and many more with soulful vocals, sweet lap steel, fine guitar and mandolin pickin', zydeco accordion, warm upright bass and percussive drums.

The Back Porch Boys are all journeymen who have played many juke joints in their time, George Barris, a seasoned bass man whose early fame dates back to the days of “Highway” on upright bass and John O'Connor on guitar has worked with many of New Zealand’s well-known musicians and is considered one of New Zealand’s guitar legends. He has played and recorded with many well known artists including the NZSO, Kiri Te Kanawa, Mark Williams, Ron Goodwin, BB King, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley. Al Norman (has worked with Warratahs, Darren Watson, and of course his own band the Rag Poets) on accordion and Paddy Burgin (singer/songwriter and luthier extraordinaire with many albums to his name) on lap steel and mandolin.

Expect a toe-tapping good old southern time on the back porch.
