Farewell to Gavin Law and Chris Sang who have gone on to other musical adventures.  And welcome to Jeff as bass guitarist and Nigel as saxophonist.

June/July 2010 - Some feedback

Comments from Glenda & Ivan

Thank you and the Band so much for the great night. Everyone was commenting how great you all were and kept asking where we had heard of you. Everyone we spoke to was very impressed by you all.

November 2009 - CD released

Our long awaited first CD release entitled “Shallow Water” is due to be completed in the next few months. We have produced and recorded the CD ourselves and are about to start the Mastering phase. It will showcase some of our original songs like Shallow water and Night shifter. We’ll let you know once it’s available.


August 2009 - Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival

We played at four venues during the weekend: Cruza Bar, Duke of Marlborough Hotel (Russell), Paihia Pacific Resort and Haruru Falls Resort. Check out what we got up to at the festival from the Gig guide page.

Check us out on their website

. Watch out to see if we are playing here this year.


Gav joined us this year (view his bio well worth a read) to add to the colour and variety of Good Oil and he has passed the test, he likes a nice red wine or two, great to have him aboard.

Chris Sang joins Good Oil for his gig as bass guitarist at Art in the Park, Albany.
