Ukaka Band at Whitegate

2010   78 x 118 cms.   NFS

The Coulthard Brothers are the Ukaka Band. In from their home at Kings Creek station for a friend's celebration, they summoned me the following day to Whitegate, and asked me to bring my camera. The men wanted a painting of themselves performing. Eden is on the keyboards, Rodney (married to Norleen Hayes from Whitegate) plays lead, and composer and bass player, Trevor, is thrumming away at lower right. They played a tight set of original rhythm and blues for over an hour, a private concert of the material they'd performed the previous evening.
