Wellington band The Noodles are wiggling their way to Kapiti for a performance next month.

The covers band are a regular at music festivals and private events, performing songs from many genres.

Lead guitarist and vocalist Nick Fawdray said the band play four or five times a week and have performed all over New Zealand since forming eight years ago.

"We've been right up to Great Barrier Island and down to Wanaka and Queenstown and anywhere in between basically."

Last week the band performed in Taupo on Thursday, in Wellington on Friday and at the Wellington Cup Carnival on Saturday, before playing at a wedding that afternoon.

This Saturday they will perform for the first time at Boundary Tap and Kitchen in Raumati. Fawdray said the set will include a "wide range of favourite tunes" from the 60s to now.

"We basically just read the crowd but play all sorts of genres, you know, rock, reggae, pop, all the works, so whatever people sort of yell at us we play. We've had some crazy times pulling out Gangnam Style just over the last couple of months with all the hype around it."

Fawdray said the band, which includes Samuel Russell on drums and Frazer Jones on bass and vocals, hope to start writing their own songs this year.

February 9, 9pm, Boundary Tap and Kitchen, Raumati.
