Three songwriters argue over headline billing, playing order, and whose shout it is, while talking about themselves and playing their self-selected ’Greatest Hits’.

Wayne Mason is something of a Kiwi icon, having won the 'song of the Century' with his song 'Nature', first recorded in the '60s with The Fourmyula, and also covered by the Muttonbirds in the '90s. Also a founder member of Rockinghorse and The Warratahs, Wayne now records and tours under his own name. When on the road with the Chiefs his job is to deliver philosophical profundities such as ‘music is like water - it just seeps away into the ground’.

Rob Joass leads several groups; The Shot Band, Hobnail and the Hard Core Troubadours. His gritty songs are equal parts Celtic folk and country rock, with the occasional barb of satirical humour betraying a cynical perspective on the human condition honed by decades of constant touring through the highways and back roads Europe, Canada and NZ. Rob calls this ‘repeatedly smashing myself up against a wall’.

Andrew London tours and records with his own trio, imaginatively named The Andrew London Trio. He was previously Chief of swing trio Hot Club Sandwich, whose repertoire consisted mostly of Andrew's whimsical, humourous and satirical ditties. He was also assistant Chief of Kapiti's 'Cattlestops', a five-piece country band whose Tui-nominated album 'Back to Rosetta Road' provided much of the soundtrack to the movie 'Second Hand Wedding'.
