“This was the classic pub gig, with a snug corner accommodating AJ’s newly-minted band: Cam Sutton and Paul Fleming, guitars; Aidan Corlett, drums; Simon Laracy, bass; and Mark Lewis, keyboards;. The sound was a bit of a fight, but the band conveyed the light and shade of AJ’s material, which ranges from introspective to in your face, always with a ‘hook’. And the vibe more than made up for the compromised sound: the spontaneous dancing that erupted midway through the 14-song set confirmed that AJ’s crew were truly in the pocket.”

“The bill included Paraparaumu musician and music teacher AJ Crawshaw accompanied by Mark Lewis on keyboard, with his popular style feel-good songs and pleasant voice”
