"Wonderful!" - John Campbell, Radio NZ

“The soundtrack to the sepia-toned, sun-washed short film of your dreams... as you would expect from a collective of such talented individuals, the musical genius at play is hard to ignore” - The New Zealand Herald

“They make a fantastic sound... Full of robot bartenders, scary sand-creatures in the desert. There’s a man with a spare face growing out of his shoulder which is a bit alarming… It’s fantastic!” - Grant Smithies

“Some serious instrument playing going on!” - Kathryn Ryan, Radio NZ

 

Finn Scholes - Band-leader Finn Scholes plays almost every instrument under the sun. He has performed with countless top acts including Neil Finn, Katchafire, Avalanche City, Tiny Ruins and Hopetoun Brown. His compositions have been used in settings such as the NZ International Film Festival and his animations have been used by bands such as Hopetoun Brown.

 

Tam Scholes - Tam is widely considered one of NZ's most original guitar players. Drawing influence from guitarists such as Bill Frisell and Tommy Emmanuel, Tam is also the frontman of his own country-calypso trio: Archie.

 

Alistair Deverick - Multi-talented Alistair Deverick has produced the band's recordings and performs with bands such as Neil Finn, Lawrence Arabia and Anika Moa.

 

Oliver Emmitt currently lives in Amsterdam, but has been shipped over expressly for this show. He plays trombone, bass and sings professionally with a number of groups. His own band 'Our Blessed Gertrude' displays his amazing musicianship and personality.
