Custer's Last Band



Noel and the band Noel and the boys played together for more than ten years with regular gigs in Queenstown. The photo on the right shows Noel and the band.

On the left that's amazing guitarist Brian (honeyboy) Harley. Noel's in the middle and his son Joseph is on the right. And down the front is the late Kevin Thomas - one of the tightest drummers you'll ever have heard.

The band's final performance was on 1st December 2007 when they released their new album, "Coming Home" at the Dux de Lux. Ned Webster was playing base and the gig was so successful they even sold out of CDs. Ssome photos of the event follow.

This was to be the late Kevin "KT" Thomas' last live gig. You can read Noel's tribute to KT.
