Neil, Maurice and Stephen have been playing the blues together on and off since 1987 when they were all living in Gisborne.
Maurice Priestley was operating a recording studio and music production business in Gisborne through the ‘80s and was already playing music with his brother-in-law Stephen Carlyle in a variety of bands and settings. Neil, Maurice and Stephen came together in The Customliners with other Gissy musos, the first of a series of… liner bands. The Customliners recorded some of Neil and Stephen’s original material at Maurice’s Capture Recording studio.
Neil, Maurice and Stephen currently play together in the Kelburn Viaduct Municipal Ensemble Jug Band(KVMeJB) which recorded a CD album ‘Stomp Around the Floor’ in 2015.
The kaupapa of the tour is to perform, live, material from the various recording projects along with newer material which naturally springs from Neil and his cohorts. The repertoire also includes examples of the music that inspired the individual members of the group to start playing and creating their own material.
The TimeLiners are performing a free LIVE at Gisborne's best live music venue, Smash Palace Bar at 6pm.
