Pres­i­den­tial rock­ers

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The Pres­i­dents of the United States of Amer­ica are coming to Auck­land for one show only and the Auck­land City Har­bour News has tick­ets to their K Rd con­cert to give­away.

The 90s pop rock group is known for songs Lump and Peaches and will be play­ing its clas­sic, five­times plat­inum self-ti­tled de­but al­bum in its en­tirety along with all their great­est hits.

The Pres­i­dents of the United States of Amer­ica launched their first al­bum in 1995 and took the world by storm with their unique take on gui­tar-based pop rock.

Whilst there was no doubt­ing the ex­treme catch­i­ness of the band’s songs it was the un­de­ni­able sense of hu­mor and fun with which they were de­liv­ered that won the af­fec­tion of mu­sic lovers.

Child­hood friends Chris Ballew (lead vo­cals, two-string ba­sitar) and Dave Ded­erer (three-string gui­t­bass, back­ing vo­cals) formed the band and played to­gether in a num­ber of projects be­fore form­ing The Pres­i­dents of the United States of Amer­ica in 1990.

Drum­mer Ja­son Finn joined the band in 1993.

The Pres­i­dents of the United States of Amer­ica are per­form­ing on March 18 at Stu­dio The Venue, 340 Karanga­hape Rd. New­town.

One show: The Pres­i­dents of the United States of Amer­ica are per­form­ing on K Rd and we are giv­ing away tick­ets to the con­cert.
