RDU’s 40th Anniversary, Canterbury Museum, 2016
Songs from soon to be released “The Deep Set” album got the live treatment.
Most recent show for the Bats was to celebrate our Christchurch student radio station, RDU’s 40th anniversary at the Canterbury Museum which was transformed into a venue. We were surrounded by the excellent RDU exhibition.
We enlisted John Chrisstofels and Mikey Summerfield to accompany us on strings on the night and hope to do so again when we tour. They also recorded on The Deep Set sessions (new album) with The Bats and we featured a few songs from that live which went down very well.
