Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band warming up the Boathouse Theatre.

Wellington-based Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band are bringing their warm-hearted brand of the blues to the Boathouse Theatre in Blenheim on 22nd July. This band are dynamic, masterful and all about entertainment.

Laura's band are all long-time players in the Wellington and National music scene. Wayne Mason well-known singer-songwriter, also one hell of a fine boogie piano player ‘firing it up’ on their behalf. Think Fats Domino, think Dr John, think Professor Longhair and you’ll be in the right honky tonk.

John O’Connor, a masterful, pedal-free guitarist who’s played with everyone along the way, from BB King to Kiri Te Kanawa. In the engine room George Barris on warm upright bass (in his early days part of ‘Highway) is joined by Pete Cogswell on the ‘back porch’ drums.

Collins, who is known for being an engaging front woman, likes to move between ballsy blues and soulful ballads, making them her own. You'll no doubt hear a little Nina Simone, a little Etta James and Laura's take on some unsuspecting men.

Laura says, "Blues comes straight from the heart and that’s just how I like it, it’s accessible, joyful, heart full music and not only that it makes me want to move – what’s not to like?”

The band have recently made ‘Live at VK’s’ which really captures what this band are all about, making it happen in the room with an audience.

Expect an excellent night out.
Tickets available from Ken Ham’s Music Works $20, remaining on the door.
