The Rogue Stage Presents
Callum Gentleman Band Experience
Shout out blues, knee slapping rhymes, tales and other stories and plenty of live music. Joined by band members, Joel Vinsen (guitar) and Sam Loveridge (violin), the three gentlemen will take you to the darker streets of Auckland, Beresford St, introduce you to Jenny and jump planes to Paris – where Callum spent a lot of time as a barman, gathering material for his songs.
Callum Gentleman have visited Rotorua on many occasions before and each time the audience fell in love with his open book performance. A treat to have 2 more men join forces with whom I consider already a magnificent force of endearing story telling and great songwriting.
Opening the stage is Ian Pirrie, a local Rotorua instrumental guitarist.
Tickets are for sale at Musicworks Rotorua or on the night at the door.
Listen here: http://callumgentleman.com/
Live music by Ian Pirrie, Andrew Nisbet, Paul Foulds (Taupo) and False Heights.
Doors open 7pm, first act 7.20pm!
$10 on the door, from Musicworks Rotorua or www.eventbrite.co.nz.
False Heights is a local (Rotorua/Taupo) based duo, ft April Nisbet and Ashley Pirie. Making music since their teens and playing on world stages with bands such as Cornerstone Roots, this duo is working hard to produce an unique local pop rock sound.
In 2016 they recorded 4 demos with Coro Sonic Lab at the recent RLC funded Pop Up Recording Studio in Rotorua. This taster session gave them the confidence to record their first EP at KOG Studios, with engineer Chris Chetland and producer Huia Hamon.
This is a big step and The Rogue Stage is behind them all the way! Supporting original home grown music 100%! Exciting!
Hope to see you there!🙂
