NEST FEST | BLACKBARN VINEYARD, HAWKE’S BAY | JANUARY 11th | Tickets on sale now
Joe Ghatt is a band from Auckland NZ. Dreamt up by Joe himself, the band came together through serendipitous means. A slow simmer on low heat, Joe Ghatt’s groovy music stirs together a listening feast for all with delicious riffs, tasty hooks and a pinch of percussive herbs and spices.
Tangled in nostalgia and feel good flavours nodding towards 60’s Psychedelia, it’s a diverse offering that elegantly trips the line between Country and Garage rock with a host of unexpected surprises along the way. Joe Ghatt are sure to please fans of bands like the Babe Rainbow, Mystic Braves and earlier groups like The Seeds and The Notorious Byrd Brothers.
The band’s debut album ‘Banana Sludge’ is available to listen on Spotify and Apple Music. Released recently under Third Eye Stimuli Records, ‘Banana Sludge’ is the perfect introduction to the Joe Ghatt experience. The record encapsulates hazy summer days, taking listeners on a journey to times past through weird and wonderful valleys and peaks, under trees in sunset fields, along river beds, around waterfalls, to sandy beaches and the sound of the ocean waves first falling back then crashing forward
