The Mike Garner Band

Electric Blues


The MGB (The Mike Garner Band) is a four or five piece ensemble led by Mike Garner. The repertoire covers post-war electric blues and original songs.

The Mike Garner Band
Tauranga blues artist, Mike Garner and his band play authentically styled post-war blues. The band features local, in-demand guitarist, Trevor Braunias who began his career as a blues player, and brings the stylings of Peter Green and early Fleetwood Mac to the show.

On tenor sax, Robbie Laven has a long career, going back to the Red Hot Peppers, signed to PYE and RCA Australia in the 70s!

On upright bass, Stewart Lawrence from Te Kauwhata, has worked with the Whangarei Big Band, and for many years with the Joe Carbery Swingtet. He has also been Mike's bass player of choice for nearly 20 years.

On drums, long-time associate Warren Houston, from Rotorua, has toured with Mike in Australia, New Caledonia and Nepal, as well as recording on most of Mike's albums for more than two decades.
