Details of Gravel Road
Gravel Road is a Wellington-based country music band with a difference. The band has blended together an eclectic group of instruments including electric and acoustic guitars, papoose (smaller sized acoustic guitar), banjo, harmonica, and fretless acoustic bass. Together, these instruments create an extraordinarily unique sound that has been adapted by the band to suit a range of excellent and memorable music.
Lead guitarist and vocalist Dave Allen has also played in many bands through the past few decades. He plays regularly with London Underground featuring top Wellington musician Andrew London. Dave's guitar artistry combines great feel with spectacular technical skill to deliver solos and riffs that speak to the soul.
Papoose, guitar, keyboard player and vocalist, Peter Allison is another institution on the Wellington music scene, having commenced his musical career playing in such legendary New Zealand bands as Dave McCartney and the Flamingos. Peter provides much of the unique sound of Gravel Road through the ringing treble tones and rhythms of the papoose guitar.
Bass, accordion and keyboard player, and vocalist Wayne Mills has been around the Wellington live music scene since the eighties. Originally a keyboard player with the popular Wellington covers band Four on the Floor, he changed to playing a fretless bass. Wayne also plays in popular Wellington bluegrass band Dixie Lix. His Breedlove acoustic / electric fretless bass provides a woody bass tone ideally suited to the unique blend of sound offered by Gravel Road.
