Over the past two years the Gunslinger’s Ball has grown from the occasional evening of country-fried revelry to what the NZ Herald has described as a full blown ‘wild musical feast [of] alt-country, cowboy, punk, folk and country blues bands.” Sell-out shows and rave reviews are now the order of the day, and it seems the usual Auckland venues can no longer contain such a musical behemoth. Therefore, October sees the Ball taking it to the towns and provinces of this proud island we call North. On board are some of the bands that have become synonymous with all things Gunslingers…The Broadsides, Bernie Griffen & The Grifters, Steve Abel.
Several of the Gunslingers came up to The 13th Floor and recorded exclusive performances. Here is the first of them…Bernie Griffen & The Grifters performing Sometimes I Feel So Sad, recorded live at The 13th Floor…watch it here:
