Good Oil

Good Oil was formed in 2006 and quickly established a solid playlist of jazz/blues and easy-listening covers, and original music. Our name, Good Oil, represents our love for red wine and the smooth sounds that we play.

We play a variety of standard well-known blues and jazz covers from the greats like Burt Bacharach, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Eric Clapton, Diana Krall, and Amy Winehouse.

Our current four-piece line-up has been together since May 2015 - Dave Peryman on Keyboards/Vocals, Katrina King on Vocals, Keith Rowlands on Drums, and Peter Jackson on Bass.  All have a long and varied musical history - from rock, blues and jazz to opera and musical theatre!

We are excited to be back for our sixth year at the Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues festival.  We’re also delighted that Gavin Law from ‘That’s Life’ will be joining us to add some brass flair to our tunes.
