THE COWPOKERS: Foot-tappin’ Onekaka Swamp Rock, World Famous in Golden Bay!
Golden Bay’s finest local boys are rounding up and riding North to bring their unique brand of rock, blues and ska to the capital.
What if swamp rock wasn’t born in Louisiana, but in Takaka you ask? What if Iggy Pop and the Stooges had been Marlborough dairy farmers? What if Hendrix had settled in a Tukurua art gallery selling homemade jewellery crafted from shells and bone?
The answer to all these questions and more can be found at a Cowpokers gig: a raw, barn-storming, rural-rock-and-roll sensation that 17 years of gigging has utterly failed to hone, polish, or refine.
