Washboard Kings

The Back Room @ Lotus Realm 714 Pollen St, Thames

Friday 14 May

Mike Garner’s Ragtime Washboard Kings. 


Probably the only band, ever, in New Zealand to feature not one but two washboard players! They also feature acoustic and resonator guitars, upright bass, fiddle, lap steel, mandolin, djembe, Cajon and more.


With a repertoire crossing pre-war blues, ragtime and Americana, Mike Garner brings together his regular duos with Robbie Laven and Warren Houston, plus, (all the way from Te Kauwhata!) the fabulous Stuart Lawrence on upright bass.
