Name of project: The Butlers

Real names: Walt Robberds, George Berry, Jordan Kennedy, Bradley King, Stingy Hooligan.

Age: We’ve been a band (as five of us) for a year and a bit.

Hometown: Christchurch

Musical guilty pleasure: Sheesh… Everyone usually has so many different answers to this question in the band, but right now if there’s Spanish dance music on, then you’ve got us.

Formative musical experience: We’ve all got super different musical experience formatively. Our masked man on the sax is jazz trained with a degree in jazz music too, he’s a genius. Walt, George and Jordan started playing music together in high-school, but it wasn’t until about 2 and a bit years ago that Jordan taught himself the bass. Bradley’s been shredding the frets for years on years and started jamming with Walt when they used to work together a few years back.
