Band chiefs stage pow-wow
Four top Wellington songwriters are teaming up for an afternoon of original music in Te Horo next month.
Kapiti musicians Andrew London and Wayne Mason will perform with alt-country singer Laura Collins, and Rob Joass of The Shot Band and Hobnail Boots, each performing their original songs.
They had called the gig Too Many Chiefs, a nod to the four musicians leading their respective bands, despite being performers in their own right, said London.
"We're all people with bands, you see, who are used to marshalling musicians, and rallying Indians together.
"There's a famous old saying, 'too many chiefs, not enough Indians', so we thought it would be interesting to get together as four band leaders, without any Indians, and play and talk about our own songs and collaborate with each other on them."
The concert will give each musician their chance to take the stage, sharing their songs and stories, while also collaborating on a few items, London said.
Too Many Chiefs, Sunday, February 10, 4pm at The Winemakers Daughter, Te Horo. Entry is $20 at the door.
