Long-time host of the The Dose, George FM's slice of everything that's good about Saturdays, Selecta Sam is a renowned vinyl fiend and a deep head of soulful, funky music - among many, many other kinds of music. Sam's also a bit of a guitar god, shredding the stage on a regular basis with his band Luger Boa. When you see him, throw him the goat from us, will ya?
LANCE FERGUSON (The Bamboos/Lanu/Menagerie)

Lance Ferguson is the bandleader and guitarist for The Bamboos, one of the most accomplished and respected deep funk outfits on the face of the planet. Thing is, there are so many strings to this man's bow that the opening line of this paragraph doesn't at all do him justice. Check out his own work as Lanu, or Menagerie, and his production work with Kylie Auldist; or his sideman gig in Cookin' With 3 Burners, or... you get the picture?
Issue #2 of the 'zine will be available for FREE at the next NZ Soul All Dayer event - also FREE, from midday til midnight, Saturday 17 August, at the Britomart Country Club.
