International recording and performing artists The Chaps are currently recording and mixing their new CD at Albany St. studios, under the guidance of producer and NZMiC member John Egenes.
The Chaps have entertained audiences with their unique mixture of music and humour. The music has its roots in folk and bluegrass, but is flavoured with calypso and swing: they’ve labelled it “Cowboy Lounge”. Tight, four-part harmonies (occasionally sung in Maori or Japanese) are supported by skilful playing on guitar, fiddle, mandolin and double bass and other instruments.
Look for their new (as yet untitled) CD to be released later this year.
