Gael Ludlow and Nigel Major

August 18 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Gael Ludlow and Nigel Major present a highly professional and entertaining duo that truly stands out from the crowd. Nigel is an experienced guitarist hailing from the UK and Gael is a singer, guitarist and well-known Kiwi radio personality.
They’ve both been playing for over a decade in the band Riverhead Slide, with several albums, and many gigs including major NZ festivals and overseas to their credit.
The duo is a change in direction, with a more commercial sound that still retains individuality and a real personality punch that provides plenty of interaction with the audience.
Gael and Nigel both play electric and electric-acoustic guitar. The vocals are truly memorable and the duo doesn’t use backing tracks. The sound is simple, adaptable and easy on the ear for both diners and dancers.
The repertoire is both recognisable and one that provides a point of difference from many other line-ups. It can suit a relaxed Sunday afternoon wine bar set, through to a Friday night party atmosphere.
All songs are arranged to suit Gael and Nigel’s individual sound.
Example of setlist: The Pretenders, Motels, Eurythmics, Tina Turner, Neil Young, Bonnie Raitt, Robert Palmer and George Michael are some of the artists covered, and recent hits feature as well. More songs are continually added.
