Dukes

Bio

Dukes, hailing from the musical south of Christchurch, return to Auckland for two quite different shows in support of their second single release, 'Mornin' from their debut album 'Lil' Sunshine'.

“'Mornin' is something like a burst of sunshine, its cruising down a West Coast road in an old XR Falcon with windows partly down, wind in your feathered hair, listening to a scratchy push-button AM radio, while the buttons on your western shirt gleam in the late afternoon sun.” Matt Barus, writer and lead singer of Dukes.

'Mornin' is the second single to be picked by New Zealand On Air for radio play and with a self-funded video directed by Richard Bell of Shuriken, the single is set to become a household toe-tapping favourite.

'Lil' Sunshine' is the debut album from the Dukes, recorded in Christchurch, mixed in London, mastered in Auckland, and is a timeline of a band formed in early 2003.

Why should someone of your calibre love this band? Check lyrics, check music, check very live show and what about oversized grins, a little self-deprecating humour and genuine talent? Now that’s novel.

Band Members:
Jo Barus (bass, vocals)
Dan Kennedy (drums)
Brad 'The Kid' Banks (guitar)
Matt Barus (vocals, guitar)
Lauren Mitchell (keyboards, vocals)
