Starting a new series of 12 each of them starting with each letter of
Rocks n Flowers. March is R for Rock. This was
an awesome gig with a great turnout, a mix of new people and our local
favourite fans. We have written a couple of
new songs that we will be working on and hopefully play at the April's
Feb is the band's 1st birthday. One year of growing friendship and creativity.
Played the 12th monthly gig to a very nice
crowd and enjoyed every second of it. This year, we will be writing
some more as a band. We just started on a new one.
is having a 5 weeks break playing live and is hitting the studio instead,
starting with the new song they wrote
together a few months back. Tracked it quite quickly but lots of work
has to be done in the box. Playing it live
has helped creating a direction for what they wanted to hear. Chris,
the sound engineer, did a little production
work on it and added touches that will give a fresh direction to live
playing. Spent countless hours editing and mixing
Time for a break, let's
New year 2019
finished the year with their own bang, playing and dancing to welcome
2019. New Zealand always the 1st one
welcoming each new year!
you have to do things the wrong way around twice ;) Having another film
maker in house again, it would
be a crime not to shoot something again. Decided to shoot the footage
for "Nothing to preach" before recording it.

has enlisted the service of a passionate sound engineer for their live
gigs. Ric has brought a new dimension to the
band's sound. Don't have a photo of him, but this is a thank you pic
wrote their 1st song together as a band. Brigitte came up with the music,
Nic with the lyrics, Richard with a cool
bass line and Grant is strong tribal beat. It's called Thunder. Let's
see how it develops over the next few months.
by the fire, love creating music in winter. Gig number 5, finetuning
and still experimenting with who plays
what and how to make each song better and better.
n Flowers keep on rocking on every month at sunset, perfecting the songs
they started with and adding
new onws to their repertoire. They now have 20 songs to play with cool
variations, since each one reflects the
style of their respective writers.
n Flowers kicked off their 1st performance on the 30th of March in a
venue like no other, their
home base in
Tutukaka, starting at sunset, as it is the last place to lose the sun
each evening. They gave themselves the challenge
of a year of monthly home concerts for them to fine tune their original
is growing and developing, been exploring each other's songs and see
what each can bring to the table to
enhance those pretty melodies and meaningful or quirky lyrics.
The flowers meet another flower, Kat and invited her to join the band,
adding her creativity to the mix. It is when
Grant (drummer aka name finder extraordinaire) proposes to call it Rock
n Flowers. No objection, everyone loves it.
2 rocks and 2 flowers decide to collaborate and mix their sounds. They
get to know each other musically. The chemistry
is there, the creativity is there, the complimentary skills are there.
Feels good :)
