Back Porch Bluegrass - 14 December 2016

03_bpbg-2Yippee! The Back Porch Bluegrass crowd are coming to town and bringing some Hamilton-style bluegrass. It is going to be an evening of cracker music – so mark 14 December in your calendar right now.

If you haven’t heard – Back Porch Bluegrass is the growing Hamilton club and radio show created by Paul Trenwith to celebrate bluegrass music in the Waikato. They’re driving up from Hamilton so we’d better make sure we put on a good first half show – before we turn them loose for some fun music. 

What’s more, it’s Christmas. So tie some tinsel to your banjo, don’t forget your Santa hat and we’ll have a few nibbles half time.

Wednesday 14 December 2016 8pm,
The Bunker Devonport
Entry: members $5, non-members $8.

Don’t forget to bring a friend and in the meantime, keep pickin’



RhodeWorkz - 8 March 2017


New Venue: Bldg A13, Fort Takapuna, 130 Vauxhall Rd, Narrow Neck 0624.

The Bunker flunked a safety inspection so we are of to Fort Takapuna.

RhodeWorkz are the family bluegrass band from Te Akatea that have out grown the “amazing kids” label. They deserve your attention, and your attendance at the Auckland Bluegrass Club on Wednesday 8 March at 8pm, for no other reason than they make great entertaining bluegrass music.

Brothers Laurence, Sam, and Nate front the band. They perform with real flair, picking a variety of bluegrass instruments and singing.  Tracy plays a supporting role on bass, and Brucee  joins in on occasional rhythm guitar when all the others have their hands full of other stringed thingies.

Mark your calendar right now because its going to be a great show complete with warm-up performers in the first half.


Auckland Bluegrass Club
Wednesday 8 March 8pm
Bldg A13, Fort Takapuna, 130 Vauxhall Rd, Takapuna.
Members $8, non-members $10 cash at the door.

Revel in applause - Wednesday 9 November

Don’t be a bluegrass loner. Don’t hide under the stairs. Come and make music at the Auckland Bluegrass Club instead!

You can revel in applause by yourself, or better still, share it with some of the other players that will be there.

So get to work on a couple of songs now and if you can’t manage hardcore bluegrass then bring a little old time or Americana.

It’s a social music, so don’t be shy, after you’ve put your name down with AL the MC, ask around – there will be plenty of musicians there to help you sound terrific with some backing.

And if you’d rather just listen  – simply show up at 8pm Wednesday 9 November and enjoy the fun at the world famous Bunker.

To close the evening we’ll have a jam on some bluegrass classics.

Songs to Jam on:
Long Journey Home – Key of A  Chords
I’ll Fly Away Key of D (female lead) OR I’ll Fly Away Key of G (Male lead)  Chords
In the Pines – Key of E Chords

Don’t forget to bring a friend and in the meantime, keep pickin’

The Auckland Bluegrass Club is held on the second Wednesday of the month at the world famous Bunker in Devonport. Directions
