Named af­ter the strik­ing fea­tures on Welling­ton’s rugged south­ern coast­line, Welling­ton Heads have been play­ing in and around the cap­i­tal city for 20 years.

Welling­ton Heads con­sists of three core song­writer-mu­si­cians (Ge­off Keith, Neil Wor­boys, and Bill Wood), who some­times play as a three-piece but more of­ten play with a drum­mer and horn play­ers to form a larger live and record­ing band. Their songs com­ment on life ex­pe­ri­ences with a dis­tinc­tive Welling­ton flavour.

Welling­ton Heads has evolved their own sound through the in­flu­ences of Kan­sas-style blue jazz, the swing­ing rhythm ‘n’ blues of Louis Jor­dan and Ray Charles, Chicago blues and in­fused with Pa­cific/Hawai­ian rhythms and Latino feels.

Welling­ton Heads has recorded five al­bums, their last South­ern Night Sky in 2016. This al­bum con­tin­ues their unique sound with a mix of rhythm ‘n’ blues, swing, soul and latin. Com­bin­ing this with their pre­vi­ous al­bums Welling­ton Heads have built an ex­ten­sive reper­toire of eclec­tic orig­i­nal songs.
