Laura Collins & The Back Porch Blues Band
Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band bring blues, ballads, banter and bling to your Friday night.

Wellington based Laura Collins and the Back Porch Blues Band are dynamic, masterful and all about entertainment.

Collins, who is known for being an engaging front woman, likes to move between ballsy blues and soulful ballads, making them her own. You'll no doubt hear a little Nina Simone, a little Etta James and Laura's take on some unsuspecting men.
Laura says "Blues comes straight from the heart and that’s just how I like it, it’s accessible, joyful, heart full music and not only that it makes me want to move – what’s not to like?”

Laura's band are all long-time players in the Wellington and National music scene. Wayne Mason well-known singer songwriter, also one hell of a fine boogie piano player ‘firing it up’ on their behalf. Think Fats Domino, think Dr John, think Professor Longhair and you’ll be in the right honky tonk.

John O’Connor, a masterful, pedal-free guitarist who’s played with everyone along the way, from BB King to Kiri Te Kanawa. In the engine room George Barris on warm upright bass (in his early days part of Highway) is joined by Pete Cogswell on the ‘back porch’ drums.

“Having a pulled-back rhythm section just allows us to be lower volume and bring a really warm vocal led sound. We’ll still make you want to dance though, this band just swings.”

Let the Back Porch Blues Band add some heat to your Friday night.
