Ginger Brown- Saturday June 23rd Live at The Matterhorn, Wellington

Playing another one of their free Matterhorn shows, Ginger Brown again distracted the audience from their pretentious political debate. Crashing out their own hazy blend of psychedelic blues to a small intimate crowd (most of whom were sitting drinking wine and cocktails), can be quite a frustrating task, but it doesn't seem to bother the duo of Lawrence Taula and Joe Dobson. It's never takes long for everyone to turn around their chairs and tune in. This gig was no exception with half a dozen people dancing and the rest sitting with eyes firmly fixed towards the stage. Dobson did however inform me after the show that it isn't his favourite place to play, for that very fact, lack of audience participation.
For many in the room, and many who have witnessed the Ginger Brown experience it's hard to believe the band haven't been given a chance to record. The bands next show this coming Friday at Tupelo is a small fundraiser, hopefully funding some recording time to store the magic for permanent memory. If you want to help one of Wellington's best undiscovered treasures I suggest you get to this gig. Ginger Brown never fail to disappoint, the demographic of Ginger Brown's fan base is one of the most diverse in the city.
