One of the latest real Bands on the scene consists of 3 experienced Musicians from North Canterbury. Epicenta is looking for work, preferably in the region, and are sure you won’t be disappointed.

The group is all real and therefore everything you hear apart from percussion is actually played and not coming from artificial backing tracks that are common these days. Music is from the 60’s to the 90’s and beyond in some cases.

Epicenta produce a big sound unlike what you would expect from a 3 piece band.

Roger Hanson
First started playing in dance bands in the mid 60’s on guitar, bass guitar and trombone at various stages. Played in Pub bands in the 70’s in many Christchurch venues. In the 80’s did most of his work as a session player and also backed many artists the like of Billy T James, Eddie Low, Ray Columbus, Frankie Stevens, Yandel sisters and Rob Guest. Played for many years as Bass player for the corporate Band “Affirmation” and continued up until recent years as guitarist, bass player and Leader for Solpak which has recently disbanded.

Kevin Frewer
Commenced his musical Career at the age of 15 playing at nightclubs in Christchurch. Played Keyboard in Craig Scotts Band before joining North Island recording band “Tom Thumb” under the guidance of legendary producer Peter Dawkins. Returned to Christchurch and joined Pub Band “Fifth Edition”. Later in the 70’s performed as a Duo with the late and great Stu Buchanan and then various Solo gigs in restaurants and the like. Sings and plays keyboards at the Canterbury A&P show every year and now looks forward to hooking up with Roger and Daughter Celine as a 3 piece.

Celine Graham
Lead singer and daughter of Kevin has featured on various tracks for Dance producers based in the Netherlands, also released a single called Colour my Eyes which made the top 10 in Holland. She is now back into music and is also a vocalist for the Christchurch based band “Paper Creatures”

Epicenta have played in approximately 20 different venues with repeat performances many times, since their formation.
