Without a doubt Cropduster are one of Christchurchs most well known rock cover bands, rocking hard on the scene in all manner of venues with an energetic, ballsy mix of hits, delivered with passion and professionalism.


Crop duster is by far the best covers band I have ever watched. The enormous energy they have lasts from the first song until the last. Thier music is tight and the vocals are strong. They hold the audiences attention with their lead singer often wandering through the crowd. It is a great experience! They sing a whole range of songs from modern rock through to the old sing along classics. Where ever these guys are playing I recommend getting a ticket and going along, you will not be disappointed.

Cropduster are a hard rock covers and originals band from Christchurch New Zealand.

Formed from the still glowing embers of the bands Dirtyfrank, Kingfish and Sciatic, the boys from the 'Duster got together in an effort to reintroduce the balls to the floor, no bullshit approach of cranking out some dirty filthy energetic rock to an unsuspecting public, seemingly drowning in a wash of bubblegum-radio-friendly-pop-rock-lite. Since then the band has managed to establish its way into the scene via many gigs at some of the South Islands lesser, and better known spots, and has has surely stamped an indelible mark in the covers and originals scene in Christchurch.

Classic blues rock influences such as Zeppelin, The Doors and The Stones mixed with harder hitting more modern legends such as Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Nirvana, Sublime, and Kiwi pub masters such as Th' Dudes, Dragon and The Exponents, matched with more contemporary dittys by The Killers and the like ensure the Cropduster experience has something for everyone…

Cropduster live shows are always full of energy, and normally this is reflected back by the punters:

"With everyone having had a decent skin-full, Cropduster rolled on stage and absolutely brought the house down. Practised at Mickey Finns, this local covers band knew exactly where it was at to get even the most rhythmically retarded of us out there up and pumping. A bit of Rage, G n R, Sublime, these guys had it all and did it well, packing out the dance-exclusive circus ring."

(ENSOC website ball report, Westpac Arena 2007)

The band plays mainly balls, pubs, functions, parties, corporate events etc. An active show, varied setlist, professional approach and good equipment to cover most sized venues help set the band apart from the rest.
