The Freight loco delivers the goods again in 2021.             

The crew is the same - Mr Nigel Bioletti on sax/vocals; Mr Marcus Wilson on guitar/harmonica/vocals; Mr Kevin Hartey on guitar/vocals; Mr Lloyd Macomber on drums/vocals, and Mr Ian Kettle on bass.

Freight roots go back to 2006, when the band that Marcus Wilson and Nigel Bioletti were part of, played some great gigs for the Auckland Blues Club - especially so at the Naval and Arms in KRd.

Freight delivers Chicago-style blues -  from slower grooves (“Who’s Been Talking?”) to full on rocking numbers (“Soul Fixin’ Man”) - with a selection of other bluesy numbers thrown in for good measure.

The band plays regular gigs in Auckland, with a good following in Devonport.

Go to the following link to see the band in action at the Horse and Trap (pre-Covid!!) for the Auckland Blues Club.

Freight congratulates Shirley and the festival team for putting another great festival together.
