Kings Arms Gig!

YES we are playing the infamous Kings Arms on Friday, April 22nd. This will be our first big gig of the year and we are pumped to be bringing you a top quality line up of bands, new material we have been working on, and of course our typical driving live performance. We have managed to secure two awesome acts in support slots: Tequila Mockingbird, and The Jason McIver Collective. Check out their pages, both of these bands are active in the local music scene, and have created a passionate fan base who will no doubt all be showing up at the Kings Arms ready to rock.


Doors open at 8pm, tickets are $10 from the band (just message us, or text Eddie on 022 089 0827) or $15 on the door. We are so looking forward to delivering you an awesome night of original live music, care of The James :)

We have just found out that we are going to be part of a documentary being made about bands in the Auckland music scene. This is a huge opportunity for us, watch this space for upcoming gigs, and updates about the documentary.


We have had an awesome few months since the release of our single Lay Down. In June we put on a gig at the Dogs Bollix in Auckland, over 100 people turned up and we had an amazing time! We’ve had a line-up change, new drummer and backing singer, and we’re working on new songs.

We are also nearly done recording the next single, and we have a photo shoot coming up real soon. ALSO, we have two gigs planned in September, Saturday the 12th at Backbeat bar, and a charity gig on the 18th to support a performing arts tour in Germany raising awareness for human trafficking.

Basically, things are pumping, we are on fire and there is a lot coming in the near future. Keep an eye out here for updates because we are going to be a lot more active online in the near future. Stay true good people, fortune favours the brave!
