River Rockers


The Riverrockers was initially formed in 2000 with four members of the Hamilton Blues Society and subsequently, with various musician replacements over the years.

The Riverrockers are excited to bring the following line-up to the 2019 Paihia Jazz & Blues Festival:

  • Bryon Steenson on drums (seasoned musician and founder of the Riverrockers).
  • Chris Dunn on guitar/vocals (proficient and respected musician who has intermittently played with the Riverrockers over the years).
  • Neil Ransford on vocals/harmonics (veteran musician of the Hamilton Blues Society).
  • Johnny Berich on keyboard (John has played with the Riverrockers previously and, over his long professional career, he has played alongside various international artists, including Neil Finn.)

An appropriate bass player has yet to be selected from the Hamilton Blues Society members.
