The Recliner Rockers live at the Huapai Tavern


Sun May 22 2022 at 03:00 pm


Huapai Tavern | Auckland, AU

The Recliner Rockers history begins in 2005 when Al and Geoff were playing together in a covers band and started talking about their love of rockabilly, blues and other roots music.
Putting on a colourful, energetic show just came naturally with Al's seriously dynamic guitar playing and Geoff's crazy spinning double bass acrobatics.

Auckland based -Rockabilly-Roots-Rock n Roll Band!
AL LAVIS - GUITAR... & VOCALS. Ex Sly Groovers veteran of stage and studio both here in NZ and the U.S. Al is well known for his smooth bluesy vocals and blistering guitar solos that'll leave you gasping
GEOFF FITZPATRICK - ELECTRIC & UPRIGHT BASS. Geoff has toured and played bass throughout NZ including being part of support acts for the recent Simple Minds tour and with Voodoo Kreepers at ex Stray Cats, Slim Jim Phantom’s Auckland show. Watch out for his energetic double bass balancing act.

Steve Rooney - DRUMS
A working drummer since the age of fifteen, both as band member and hired session player, Steve has toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe and Scandinavia, playing literally thousands of shows, in venues ranging from clubs, indoor theatres and arenas, to football stadiums and outdoor amphitheaters. Steve has appeared at major festivals including Glastonbury (UK), Latitude (UK) Reggae Sun Ska (France), Graspop (Belgium) and South BySouth West (Austin Texas). His Radio/TV appearances include Channel 4 (UK), Sky TV, BBC Radio1 - Live From Maida Vale studios and BBC2’s Later Live With Jools Holland. Steve has been a tutor columnist for both of the UK’s best-selling drummers magazines, ‘Rhythm’ and ‘Drummer’, and worked on recording projects in Los Angeles produced by two Grammy Award winners, Meredith Brookes and Nile Rodgers. Despite, or maybe because of, all of this, he finds it impossible to retain a pair of sunnies for any respectable length of time.
