Details:
âThe Cattlestopsâ began in 2004 when Kapiti musicians Andrew London, Dave Berry and James Cameron discovered that Colleen Trenwith, fiddler with the legendary Hamilton County Bluegrass Band, had recently moved to Otaki. London, Berry and Cameron were all playing together in various pick-up bands, and had talked about playing some country music âone dayâ. Trenwithâs arrival seemed karmic and she was immediately roped in and, with the addition of Evan Williams on drums, the Cattlestops were formed.


By early 2005 the band has already played several local venues, a concert at the Organic River Festival in Levin, support for Wayne Mason at the âSounds and Natureâ concert in Waikanae, and made an appearance on TV Oneâs âGood Morningâ show.

They had also begun recording their debut album, tentatively entitled âCattlestoppinââ, which features original tunes from both London and Cameron and some favourite standards from the live repertoire which by this time was revealing a decided move towards the jazz/country hybrid known as âWestern Swingâ. In this very traditional genre, jazz standards like Louis Jordanâs âChoo Choo ChâBoogieâ and Bobby Troupeâs âRoute 66â are given the âWesternâ treatment of a chugging two-beat rhythm section over which soloists perform jazz-style improvisations.

It is purely a fortunate coincidence that the blend of vocal talent in the âCattlestopsâ provides almost a perfect four part section. Cameronâs velvet Ray Benson-like baritone sits just below Londonâs tenor, complimented by Berryâs fluent bass and Trenwithâs smooth alto. Four-part harmony is becoming an increasingly prominent feature of the bandâs performance.



The Cattlestops are:

James âJimmy Rayâ Cameron: double bass and vocal. Spent the last few years fronting his own swing band, the âVelox Brothersâ who were resident at Wellingtonâs Parkroyal Hotel for the best part of a decade. At 6â 4â Jamesâ is the only bass player in town who can make a double bass look small, which has as much to do with the way he throws it around as the way he towers over it.

Andrew âLuckyâ London: guitar and vocal. One of the busiest musicians in the Wellington region and well-known to National Radio listeners for his smooth renditions of jazz standards. Also fronts acoustic swing trio âHot Club Sandwichâ, who have played almost every Arts and Jazz Festival in NZ.

Dave âDogsâ Berry: guitar and vocal. Dogs has recorded and toured with many top local and international acts including The Drifters, Shona Laing, The Holidaymakers and Bo Diddley. A dry and laconic performer who delivers consistently scorching lead guitar and some mean lap steel. Referred to by Wellington musicians as the âKing of Toneâ.

Colleen Trenwith (aka âDolly Beanâ): fiddle and vocal. Founder member of the legendary Hamilton County Bluegrass Band, first and only New Zealand act (to date) to play Nashvilleâs Grand Ole Opry. Toured extensively throughout the USA and Australia, and member of Australian country icon Slim Dustyâs band for several years.

Evan Williams (aka âDonny Ruckusâ): drums and vocal. At 31, Evan is the youngest member of the band by several decades, Evan keeps rock-solid time just as he did in his previous band âSouthside of Bombayâ who won several national awards and had great commercial success in the â90s.
