4 Man Bob to Play Cathedral Square
17 February 2003
Friday Lunchtime Concert, Friday 21 February, 12.15pm to 1.45pm,
High-energy ska band 4 Man Bob - a six piece band - will play Cathedral
Square this Friday.
Ska is Jamaican influenced dance music, popular through the 1960s,
revived in the 1980s, and popular again today with the likes
of The Special Beat and No Doubt bringing this unique style of music
into the charts.
4 Man Bob are a local act, who performed at The Op Shop Ball last
year - part of the Rapid youth festival - and have played all over
New Zealand at festivals, pubs and University events.
Noel Hungergford is the initiator of the band. He describes the
band thus: " I play a loud guitar and sing in a loud gravely
voice. Brendan Grant is another loud guitarist. This guy has the
moves as well as the grooves and has been known to appear onstage
wearing nothing but dungarees over his briefs, with a babys
jumper on his head. Tim Gillon is the bass man and king of all things
groove. Fraser Hungerford is my baby brother and trumpet player
extraordinaire. Phil Wooding on sax is the real talent behind the
band, and Chris Head tries real hard to play drums."
4 Man Bob will be mixing ska with a touch of old school swing this
Friday lunchtime, in Cathedral Square.
