TOMORROW NIGHT!!! Its going to be an excellent night. I just watched a vid of the Recliner Rockers bass player on the ground playing the bass with his foot! (proof https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pY7V5I13cBY) and also DURTY MURDUR !! These bands are going to go off at The Kings Arms Tavern and that's not counting all the fun off the beard comp! Epic. So stoked to be involved.
OMB playing at this fundraiser sat night in Patoka with our buds Hot Janola. Looking forward to that, but if you can't make the journey there you are spoilt for choice. Detour Cabana Gig is on, who are always great and I'd also like to check out Fraser Mack at Common Room on sat. Another time. Seen him play at Sanctuary open mike. Great guitarist. I don't wanna tell you what to do, but if I were you I'd get amongst it HB!
Not long to go party people! If you're looking for a great night of laid back hospitality and want to help raise some money for an invaluable service then come along. It's only 35 min from town, and us a really cool little venue. Hopefully we'll see you there!!!
The 'I YAM WHAT I YAM' tour is coming to Hamilton this Saturday! 3 of Hawke's Bay's best bands, Detour, Hot Janola and Old Mans Beard invite you to come and bust some moves! One night only! See you there! Only at the Nivara Lounge!!!
Thanks for coming out last night everyone, was a primo night with tears, laughter, new alliances were formed, old ways left behind. (The tears were from when my guitar fell off the stage during soundcheck) it was good to pretend the crowd was just for us, but lets face it Jordan Luck Band are legends. Thanks for letting us open for you! Catch you others next gig aye? And thanks Roy Brown for another stella night.
Tomorrow night two worlds collide in a clash never before seen at The Cabana!!! Detour & Old Mans Beard!! Well, not really collide, more of a friendly synchronistic entanglement and mutual friendly appreciation of music with our friends, and I spose it has been seen before, but not for ages. Anyway, I'm looking forward to it!
As usual, another great offering from Detour. Fully recommend.

AN APOLOGY, AND THANKS: Firstly, I would like to apologise to everyone who attended on Saturday. In my haste to leave Hamilton on friday, I neglected to pack my good gig flannel, and so had to wear my every day casual wear flannel shirt. For this, I hope you will forgive me and perhaps we can work through the issues this may raise. I would also like to thank everyone who came. We had a great night! Awesome to see a good crowd out. And thanks to Hot Janola and Alex Moffat and the Scarecrows. You guys rock! And of course thanks to Nick Blow, our excellent sound guy and Roy Brown at The Cabana. Thanks for having us. Support your local. - Andrew
