Emerging from the shadows of the Port Hills, One American Justin Rogers on mandolin, guitar and vocals, one Aussie Gary Elford on guitar, acoustic bass and vocals. They meet up with a six toed Kiwi singer, banjo and guitar player Steve Stern to share their love of Bluegrass, Old Timey and Americana music.
Playing together now for over four years they have formed into well-balanced instrumental and vocal trio, driven by Steve’s banjo playing and Justin’s sympathetic and innovative mandolin ornamentation. Gary’s contribution on guitar and bass pulls the whole thing together into the tight unit that is the Port Hillbillies.
They play a range of songs and tunes from toe tapping, recognisable standards to some obscure songs from other genres that are given the Port Hillbillies once over.
