The Self-Righteous Brothers are Derek Jacombs (vocals/acoustic guitar) and Nigel Masters (vocals/upright bass), moonlighting members of Tauranga blues & roots favourites Kokomo and old-timey sensation The Bay City Ramblers.

Their music has been described as comfort food for the ears, offering an eclectic mix of blues, folk, country, jazz, Americana and anything else that takes their fancy, ranging from Bessie Smith to Bob Dylan and their own songs.

Despite being shy folk who rarely venture far from home, The Self-Righteous Brothers have performed at various arts and blues festivals and other hi-falutin' events around New Zealand. They have also released two albums.
