Ray Woolf

Ray Woolf With The Mike Walker Trio
One of our greatest entertainers, Ray sings the great swing hits made famous by acts such as Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Dean Martin and more recently Michael Bublé, but expect some good old rock and roll when Ray gets back to his roots

The Mike Walker trio features Bruce King and probably the best all round bass player in New Zealand, Billy Karaitiana, (Christian). Mike, Bruce and Billy worked together for over 40 years, & with Steve Garden toured with Ray Woolf for 15 years. They also toured with Ray Columbus and Peter Posa, as well as backing the great Chuck Berry.
 

Billy set the benchmark for bass players in the 60s, was in numerous TV shows in the 60s - 80s such as C-mon, Happen Inn & a TV special with Ricky May. He has played on over 30 albums/cds as well as producing cds /albums for 12 bands including "Herbs". His first bands were Max Merritt and the Meteors, Ray Columbus and the Invaders as well as Billy Thorpe. He has also played in Headband & Filthy McNasty Night. It will be a night not to be missed, as you will feel many years of musicianship playing for you.
