All Ages

I first saw Dave years ago and he has always been one of my favourite musicians,his guitar work is amazing.

He has great feel and an authentic sound.
Janet has played for us several times with Gumboot Tango and is always enjoyable to listen to.

She has a vast repretoire at her disposal and the 2 of them together will be something special.

"I have heard really good reports from fellow musicians. There was magic here tonight." (Robbie Duncan, Wellington)

"Awesome musicians, singers. I’d go anywhere to enjoy their performances." (Paul Jonson, Auckland)

Dave Murphy (Red Dog Saloon Band) and Janet Muggeridge (Gumboot Tango), two well-loved kiwi musicians have joined together to form an inspired musical partnership. Their combined experience and formidable musicality has created an exciting buzz and fresh approach to familiar and favourite tunes.

Well-known for his driving blues and finger-style picking, Dave plays a unique 1930s Advanced Jumbo Gibson re-issue with rosewood back and sides and long-scale neck. He lays down a powerful rhythm for Janet’s precise and dynamic playing on her beautifully reconditioned 1914 Gibson mandolin.

Their sound is evocative and compelling.

Vocally they are a perfect match for the songs they have chosen to perform – songs that will tug at your heartstrings or get your feet tapping. Janet’s unique voice and unerring sense of harmony sits well with Dave’s low growly blues and high and lonesome ballads. Whether original tunes or John Prine, Steve Earle, Townz Van Zandt covers, they perform with an energy and joy that keeps their audiences glued to their seats.
