WOODEN BOX BAND
OUR FIRST SISTER & MISTER BAND!
Songwriters Emily Clemett, Jessie Moss and Paddy Burgin drive The Wooden Box Band. Together with the full band they create a rich tapestry of folk, country and indie sounds. Influenced by Shona Laing, Gillian Welch and the Wainwrights, their melodies are catchy, harmonies are close and spine tingling and the rhythm section is underlays it all.
Scarlet are Amanda Hanna-Doull, vocals & Andy Mauafua, guitar.
From sultry ballads to sassy 60's jazz & pop, Scarlet inject every song with their unique flavour and soul. Dusty Springfield to Suzanne Vega, Nancy Sinatra to Leonard Cohen, expect tunes you love dished up with style and tenderness to burn.
More sound comes out of Andy's guitar than you'd believe for one person, he slaps, beats and makes it sing - a love affair really, laying the architecture for Amanda's velvet tone and powerful delivery.

THE T-BONE TRIO
The T-Bone Trio present a soulful blend of high-energy Americana music played on guitars, mandolin, banjo and fiddles with close vocal harmonies and fiery instrumentals.
Comprising of Gerry Paul, Cameron Dusty Barnell, and Richard Klein, the T-Bone Trio play an eclectic mixture of styles within the Americana genre, drawing on their backgrounds in Old Timey, Bluegrass, Country, Cajun, Zydeco and Blues. For this performance they will also be accompanied by their friend and legend Wellington musician Aaron Stewart on Double Bass.
Brought together not only by their love of music, but also their obsession with food, wine and beer, the ex-chef, ex-restauranteur and current spearfisherman get together regularly in the capital to cook kai moana, sample Italian wine and play music. The last two years have seen the group playing shows at CubaDupa, Newtown Festival, Wellington On A Plate and Beervana. Join four of the capital’s finest acoustic musicians for a Whistling Sisters first Mister Session!
