Hey everyone. Carolyn and I have been living here in Auckland for a little while now and we're enjoying the good weather and cheap food. Driving is another issue, but yeah, things are largely cool. We've been on the receiving end of a lot of help and support from various Kiwis here who have supported in our move out, visas, job hunting and of course banding! So in an effort to pay it on... if any bandsmen think a sea change might be a good idea, please get in touch. NZ has a small but lively banding scene that could benefit from a few more enthusiastic players. I conduct a D grade band who will be happy to see anyone who can hold an instrument upright within a few tries, and we play for a young A grade band (one of NZ's finest) that would love a couple of extra recruits. I'll be happy to advise and assist in getting you out here, pointing you towards work and a suitable band! In Auckland winter lows are normally around 12 degrees, and summer is a pretty steady humid high 20s. No scary animals, and only a few scary people. Get in touch with us if you fancy a change!
