Good Oil

Good Oil was formed in 2006 by Dave Peryman 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 red wine mixed with the smooth sounds that 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!

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 regular performers at the annual Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival and have played at numerous other festivals and venues including 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.
