The Recliner Rockers history begins in 2005 when Al and Geoff were playing together in a covers band and started talking about their love of rockabilly, blues and other roots music.
Putting on a colourful, energetic show just came naturally with Al's seriously dynamic guitar playing and Geoff's crazy spinning double bass acrobatics.
Along with Steve's flamboyant drumming and Bruce's smooth sax style, their flare for showmanship truly matches their musical prowess.
The first gig of note was the Whangamata Beach Hop in 2006, where the venue they played was filled to capacity and people were being turned away from the door. The Recliner Rockers with their repertoire of covers and originals quickly became a favourite and have been invited back every year since.
