Ukaka Band at Whitegate
2010 78 x 118 cms.
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.
