Hello Sailor has been busy in recent years sharing stages with the cream of Kiwi music, playing to over 70,000 people alongside Hammond Gamble, th’ Dudes, Citizen Band, Anika Moa, Dragon, Jordan Luck, Midge Marsden, Stellar*, Gin Wigmore, Zed, Stan Walker, Devil Skin, Jon Toogood, The Black Seeds and Blindspott.
In June 2023 they supported English legends 10cc on the NZ leg their Ultimate Greatest Hits Tour. The Butter Factory show will feature Hello Sailor as the full sail plugged in five piece rock’n’roll band, playing a set packed with hits. Harry Lyon says; “We haven’t played in Whangarei since 2006. That’s a long time between drinks and we want to fix that by playing a Friday night rock’n’roll bar gig. The Butter Factory seems perfect.
” Hello Sailor in 2023 is dedicated to the music and memory of Dave McArtney and Graham Brazier. The current line-up is as close as fans will get to the band’s classic sound, powered by the energy and attitude of Rick Ball on drums and Paul Woolright on bass. Harry Lyon has stepped up as lead vocalist with he and Jimmy Taylor taking care of weaving guitars. Stephen Small on keyboards and saxophone completes the package. Their shows feature Hello Sailor, Pink Flamingos and Graham Brazier favourites, hit songs from Harry’s back catalogue and his 2018 critically acclaimed hit solo-album “To the Sea”.
