Auckland based covers band
Mark Rimington and Linda Redwood are the nucleus of the band X-STATIC and pride themselves on having been the right choice for many functions of various types and sizes from small intimate audiences to 20 to 2000 plus. They have travelled extensively in New Zealand and overseas to Bali, Fiji and Australia for both corporate and private events. They can be a 2, 3 or 4 piece band.
MARK RIMINGTON (guitar, vocals and sequencing) has been an active professional musician for 19 years in bands and on stage in theatre starring as "Rocky" in "The Rocky Horror Show" in the 1986 production and as a priest in "Jesus Christ Superstar" in 1994. Previously a frontman for 80's band Echoes, Mark has also worked in bands overseas in the U.K, South Africa, Australia and the South Pacific Region. Mark is also considered one of the top musical sequencers in the business and when you hear the music you will know why!
LINDA REDWOOD (vocals) has been a professional singer for 10 years but her early grounding was through musical theatre. Linda has sung with bands including Fatal Attraction, Absolutely and the Sugarbabes and has worked as a studio session singer. She is considered by many to be one of the best female vocalists in Auckland.
HOLLY DUNN (vocals) Holly is originally from Leeds in the U.K. She has had a varied musical background which includes opera and jazz. After moving to N.Z she joined the band Pulse and performed regularly at Sky City and for many private functions before joining the Xstatic team.
The ability to offer X-STATIC in varying sizes has made it possible to cater to varying budgets, physical constraints of venues and client needs. They have a diverse range of material from pop to rock, reggae to rock ‘n roll, show tunes to Frank Sinatra. Interaction with their audience is a major part of their appeal. Wireless equipment allows members of the band to leave the stage and interact with the audience. On many occasions members of the audience have found themselves invited onto the stage to perform along with the band.
X-STATIC is able to provide great music by using state of the art equipment that achieves a big band sound but is compact and their volume is very controllable.
