Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band are heading back to the Lido for some dressed up, back porch blues on Saturday 15 November.

Laura and the band have been out and about playing in Taranaki including a fabulous iconic hall in Kakaramea, true back porch style with supper included.

Back Porch talent includes Wayne Mason, a well-known Kiwi songwriter in his other life, also one hell of a stonkin’ boogie blues piano player. So look out for wild solos with a wonderful sense of abandon. Matthew Newman, originally from Portland Oregon on guitar, moves between adding funk to handing out heart-wrenching solos with ease.In the engine room George Barris (long time NZ player, of early fame in the band 'Highway') on mellow upright bass and Pete Cogswell on Back Porch Drums.

You can expect a little Etta James, some Bonnie Raitt, some Muddy Waters and many more favourites, a whole lot of cheek, some fine playing and a dressed up, toe-tapping, good old southern time on the back porch.

Saturday 15 November, 8.30 - 10.30pm at Lido Cafe, Wellington, no cover, come in for dinner or drinks.
