Stiff Joints

Local band the Stiff Joints play blues/folk/rock with sparkling originals and inventive takes on Blues and Rock classics.

Southland

Southland is a local band playing covers of their favourite blues and rock songs. They’ve been rocking crowds in and around Richmond since 2015 playing at charity events, school fairs and music clubs.

The Café Racers

Named after British bikes from the 50’s & 60’s with clip-on handlebars & single seats, evoking memories of rock’n’roll, rockers and coffee bars. The band play hot rhythm & blues from this golden era, with just a little rock’n’roll on the side… just for good measure.
