A “musical moveable feast of friends”, known as The Ranchsliders, play an evening of country, roots and blues. They will perform an eclectic mixture of self-penned material, old and new, while taking the opportunity to perform songs by their favourite songwriters.

The band’s impressive line-up features the rhythm section from the iconic Coalrangers band - drummer Alan Cattermole and bassist Geoff Farmar.

Alan became interested in playing drums at age four. He has played professionally in both New Zealand with The Newz and Australia with the Domino Theory, signed to WEA. He continues to tour NZ as a session musician.

Bassist Geoff Farmar is a true storyteller. Originally a drummer, he is a multi-instrumentalist and a prolific writer of songs “filled with simplicity, imagination and charm”. Geoff was a founding member of Christchurch’s country rockers The Cowboys, where he first joined forces with John Sanchez-Lloyd before forming the Tui Award-winning Coalrangers.

John Sanchez-Lloyd began his musical career peddling a harmonium with the band Salvation when he was an art student in the late 1960s. A veteran of numerous musical liaisons as keyboardist and session musician, he performs, records and tours in the duo Lloyd & Doublet with guitarist Phil.

Phil Doublet began playing at age seven and has not stopped since. He is a professional musician and has played in many working bands and provided music as a multi-instrumentalist and backup vocalist for many recording artists and shows in Australasia. He is at home playing blues and country music, genres in which he is highly regarded and also keeps busy as a music teacher, session player, performer and composer.

Together, these amazing musicians will give you an evening to remember.
