The band has an exceptional line-up of musicians including: Keith Pereira, who has recently announced himself on the NZ country music scene. His unique country voice has been noticed by many established country artists, all of which see him having a big future in country music.
Dan Cosgrove, a well-established musician and one of New Zealand’s premier country guitarists.
Nick Jones, a most popular and exceptional fiddle and keyboard player.
Karl Pereira, on bass who already has 10 years of experience at just 21 years of age.
Jordan Tannen – a versatile drummer who has also worked as a composer and producer in the music industry.
The Trail Benders have delighted audiences in the North Island over the past year, with sell out shows in Auckland. They were also delighted to be chosen to back Australian country duo, Neilly Rich on their NZ tour.
Marian Burns is accomplished fiddle player and one of NZ’s most iconic musicians having thrilled audiences across NZ and around the world. She has shared the stage with country music legends such as Ricky Scaggs and has been highly decorated with awards for her incredible musicianship, most notably being inducted as a “Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit” in the Queen’s Honors list last year.
