Noel in Poland

Noel's music is attracting quite a following in Poland where they refer to him as "The Kiwi Johnny Cash". He often plays with legendary keyboard player Jacek Prokopowicz and they've played some impressive gigs.


Noel and the band


Noel and his friends built a loyal fan base playing gigs throughout New Zealand's South Island for many years. As Custer's Last Band they usually brought the house down with their unique country blues style which Noel calls "Rockacowblues".

A modern travelling minstrel

When he's downunder Noel's often based on his boat, a stunning fifty foot schooner called Lady Sterling. She makes a great home and gives Noel the opportunity to travel and perform at some out of the way locations.
