If you're really lucky you'll get to see his beautiful flowing hair down. But only at the rock'n'roll, bohemian folk gigs we're afraid. Windon also teaches guitar privately in Auckland Central.
Bass / BVs
Eamon is the bomb diggity at bass, some would say "a
Jazz Kat from way back" but he loves ALL the music, rocking either double bass or electric depending on the occasion. Have you seen his vintage Double Bass yet? It's dreamy. Ask him how old it is. He's also getting into BV's and it's a real treat for the band.
Eamon has a Jazz Degree from The University of Auckland and plays in multiple bands including Ruckus, Shindig, Ijebu Pleasure Club, Essential Fifth Elements, Rocking Roller Coasters and CJC Creative Jazz Club Aotearoa. He is currently working on making his own Synthesisers for an art installation and yes...he teaches Bass part-time in the Auckland area.
