The Pineapple Lumps show
Rocky Rhodes has developed a unique theme under the name "The Pineapple Lumps," where we perform a complete night (4 hours) of nothing but Kiwi and Oz classic tracks!
See the link below for our song list, there is a broad range of Kiwi no. 1 chart hits and classic winners with a predominance in the 70's and 80's, during the days of the "DB circuit" when we were spoilt for choice with top original bands touring freely throughout NZ!
Relive those days with a performance from us, suits many themes such as Kiwiana, 70's, 80's, Down under, Anzac etc.
We will surprise you with the depth of good songs from our shores, plus we can provide pineapple lumps prizes for correct answers to our quick questions on artist and song knowledge of the era!
