Baby Boomer Girl – a Boomer of a Band!

A triumphant Baby Boomer Girl, the band, rocked Wellington fans at their launch,  Saturday 12th June, delivering an energetic set of pithy & humorous original material to a boomer audience. From crowd-shouter, Black – (Gothic metal topped with a black wig) –  to ‘play it again’ Baby Boomer Girl signature song, the audience was right there relating to both groove and lyrics. General feedback: Great songs!

The programme opened with a close sound in the first set by Baby Boomer Girl duo, Bernard Wells & Radha Sahar. And yes, the audience feedback  confirmed “there were tears in our eyes” during DNA,  senses touched by Roll On and Captured, and knowing laughter during I Won’t Forget You and Wardrobe Full of Shoes. Thanks to engineer David Antony Clark’s skill on the desk, we enjoyed a resounding  “we could hear every word!”

During break people sipped mid-winter wine & punch and stocked up on Baby Boomer Girl tee shirts, singles and a memoir Live EP of the duo. Then a hushed audience adjusted their trilbys as the band juxtapositioned Radha’s ‘mother’s apron’ look with the rebellious Not Gonna be Invisible lyric, to a driving rock pace.

Evan Williams, an excellent drummer, and Matt Parlane on a mean bass, are known for their talent in bands such as  Pearl, the JediNites and the Cattlestops. Bernard Wells is a well known and much loved multi-instrumentalist in acoustic bands such as Chilli Jam, Ballyscully, Dargaville and his duo with Peter Daly. In his move to electric guitar in Baby Boomer Girl Wells gets a great  sound in tasteful licks and raunchy rock lead breaks. Together with Radha’s strong vocal sound and energetic rhythm guitar, the band earned an enthusiastic ‘Cool!‘  from boomers, teens & twenties alike.

Look out for the Baby Boomer Girl band and duo.  Be there – introduce yourself – we’d love to meet you!
