The Eastern

Often referred to as New Zealand’s hardest working band, The Eastern has made it a point of pride, as well as a way of life, to pack up their banjo, fiddle, and six string to hit the road. They’ve played everywhere from Timaru to Nashville to Sydney and beyond.

They treat every show as the best one yet.

The Eastern is a string band that roars like a punk band, that swings like a gospel band, that drinks like a country band, that works like a bar band, that hopes like folk singers, and sings love songs like union songs, and writes union songs like love songs, and wants to slow dance and stand on tables, all at the same time. Whether roaring as their big six piece string bad or swinging the loud lonesome sound as a two piece and averaging over 200 shows a year, The Eastern can hold it down in all settings for all comers.

Coming from earthquake damaged Lyttelton, the Eastern offer hope, heart and honesty with an authenticity that raises the spirits.
