The 'New Variants!' comprise of long-time 'Taihape Musicians Club' members Fred Hammer, Richard Aslett and Cyn Hammer, now joined by 'Rangatua Rocker' Mike Bly!. The 'New Variants!' band name arrived following a huge internet search for a new moniker not already taken and replaces their previous name of 'Fredwood Max'
Going into this, their third concert, the 'New Variants!' repertoire has extended massively following their recent second gig for a private party, where the order of the day was for old school 'Rock & Roll' hits! Many of these highly danceable classics have been joyfully added to their eclectic set list hits from the 50's right up to tantalizing tasty tunes of today!
Don't miss this next LIVE performance booked for Saturday the 11th of June, starting at 7pm at the Taihape Working Men's Club on Kuku Street (opposite the Fire Station).
The 'New Variants!' are...
Fred Hammer - Bass Guitar, Acoustic Guitar & Vocals
Richard Aslett - Drums & Percussion, Vocals
Cyn Hammer - Keyboards, Vocals, Guitar, Ukulele and additional sound effects
Mike Bly - Lead Electric Guitar & Vocals
A new 'Facebook' page is being compiled for 'The New Variants!' and will be up and running shortly, yet for now, visit the Richard Aslett website or search on 'Eventfinder' for more information. Thanks!
