Good Oil

Good Oil was formed in 2006 by Dave Peryman (aka Mr P) and quickly established a solid playlist of jazz/blues and easy-listening covers and original music. Our name, Good Oil, flowed out of our love for fine wines, especially red wines that mix so well with the smooth sounds we play. 

The band currently has six members: Dave Peryman on Keyboards/ Vocals, Katrina King on Vocals, Keith Rowlands on Drums, Peter Jackson on Bass, Simon Berry on Saxophone and Luca Cipolletta on Jazz Guitar.  All have a long and varied musical history – from jazz and blues to rock, pop and opera to musical theatre!  Luca can’t make it to the Festival this year so Simon and Dave get to do more solo’s! 

We have a repertoire of over 20 original songs, written by Dave Peryman, plus an extensive list of well-known blues and jazz covers from the greats like Burt Bacharach, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Eric Clapton, Diana Krall, and Amy Winehouse.

We are thrilled that this is the 11th year in a row we have played the annual Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival!

We have played at numerous festivals and venues including the Mission Bay and Whangamata Jazz&Blues Festivals, The Uxbridge Theatre, Hamilton Jazz Society, Coopers Creek Winery and Sky City.

We are passionate about our music, love to play live and entertain you at your corporate or private event , bar or festival.
