Warratahs & Friends
A NIGHT OF COUNTRY, BLUES AND ROCK WITH THE WARRATAHS AND MIDDLEMAN
The Warratahs started life as a covers band in Wellington based around Barry Saunders’ voice and Nik Brown’s ability to set his violin on re. They moved from covers to originals and have since painted the landscape of heartland New Zealand with an incredible body of work. Twenty- ve years down the track, many albums, awards and sales later, they still continue to create and perform. They are New Zealand’s most enduring and loved country band.
In 1992, Barry Saunders and Middleman frontman Chris Williams worked together and formed a friendship that has lasted to this day. Chris now works locally and his band, Middleman, will open for his old mate, playing Chris’ original songs.
Middleman has recorded two original albums and performed locally for the last ve years. This promises to be a special night. Some old favourites, some new sounds and some old friends getting together.
