"Soul, country-soul, rockabilly, big band swing , everything serves the extraordinary Tami so that in the end, joy and
power are duly shared."
Now just announced, blues-Americana-folk rockers The Miltones will join theSASSAFRASS! tour for four of the shows

The Miltones are an Auckland-based act who have been sending ripples through the Kiwi music scene since their inception
in 2014. Their self-titled debut album - recorded in Lyttelton with renowned producer Ben Edwards, who also co-produced
SASSAFRASS! - was released in 2017.
The Listener awarded it 4.5/5 and the New Zealand Herald called it “The freshest sound in New Zealand popular music right now”.
The Miltones were also recognised at the 2018 Taite Music Awards, where they received the Auckland Live Best Independent
Debut Album award.
The Miltones are also a band that clearly thrives on playing live.
“Their enthusiasm and joy is infectious, sweeping over the crowd as smoothly as their sweet, soulful sounds. This was
hands down the most enthusiastic crowd I have seen to date at The Tuning Fork...If there is one band that should feature
on your ‘must see’ list, it is The Miltones – they are certainly destined for great things!"
