SOUTHERN trio Left Or Right will be bringing their “A game” to Invercargill’s Tuatara Cafe on Saturday night, bassist Steve Marshall says.
The Invercargill gig is the last stop on the band’s New Zealand Winter Tour.
“We’ll definitely be bringing our A game and finishing off the tour in a highly energetic way.
“It’s always a really appreciative honest audience, they get right into it. We feel the love down there.”
All three members of the band are originally from Invercargill, with Marshall and Callum Hampton now based in Dunedin.
Marama is still based in the southern city, and Marshall said they often returned south to write new music.
So far, the band has produced three albums Nuggety (2009), Buzzy(2012) and Trippy(2015) and Marshall describes the music as a psychedelic reggae rock fusion.
“It’s a bit of a mash up of genres really.”
He said they were looking forward to playing at the Tuatara for the first time and hoped to pack out the venue.’
“I think it’s exciting for everyone to have a new venue for people to go and see bands at, we’re certainly really excited about playing there.”
The band has been together for more than a decade and celebrated 10 years since performing its first gigs in Dunedin and Invercargill last year.
“That was a cool wee milestone to bring up and just sort of prove that we still love what we’re doing – bring on another 10.”
Although they had had a bit of a quiet spell on the writing front, Marshall said they would be getting back into it soon.
“The rest of this year we’re going to be working on material for a new record. We’re keen to get another one happening.
“While everyone is still passionate we’ll definitely keep doing it.”
