New Zealand's most entertaining band consists of five of the most unlikely Rock Stars you have ever seen.
Live, the boys take you on a high-energy musical journey of outrageous fun and wild fashion (Nerd fashion that is!).
None the less, when Club Nerd play at your event or function, there will be fun - guaranteed!
Club Nerd play all those songs that everyone loves, but are just too afraid to admit.
Their music covers a versatile range, from the disco 70's, right through to those popular synth sounds and glam rock of the 80's.
They even throw in some favourites from the 50's and 90's for good measure!
One thing guaranteed, you and your guests will know the music and want to dance and sing along.
Club Nerd started in 1997, after it's ringleaders, Melvin and Barry (Who prefer to see themselves as visionaries for modern music) decided that New Zealand needed a band like them. They travelled extensively throughout the country, but saw only bands that took themselves too seriously. Melvin and Barry quickly saw an opportunity for a "cool" band. That is, 'Retro Cool', the way 'Cool' should be, complete with long socks, pocket protectors and horn rimmed glasses! (If you ask me, what they actually formed was a band that exacerbated all the panache of a Ukrainian Goat Farmer). Because Melvin and Barry came from academic circles (both multiple degree holders and specialists in subjects that most normal individuals haven't even heard of, nor really care about) they promptly assembled the most bizarre team of musicians one could ever imagine.
DO YOU LIKE THE 80s?
An obsessive fascination with Pacman, Don Johnson,
from Miami Vice, and the Rubics Cube has kept these boys-timewarped,
mostly in the 80's.
They love all the music from the 'New Romantics'
(bands like Depeche Mode and Human League), 'Glam Rock' (Kiss and
Europe) and pop that became popularised in the 80's, and frankly are
specialists in it. There is no other band in New Zealand that boasts
a stronger repertoire of 80's songs. But that's not all
Club Nerd are very
interest in Mirror Balls and Flared Pants got Club Nerd also hooked
onto Disco. Look out for Melvin's John Travolta impersonation, it's
a real laugh. But it doesn't end there. When Melvin wanted to be
like Ricky Martin, Club Nerd did Ricky Martin. When Melvin wanted to
be Jon Bon Jovi, the boys did Bon Jovi. We drew the line at Nana
Club Nerd perform hits from the 70's, 80's and 90's
and to keep the older audiences happy, they even throw in the odd
slow song, country number and 50's
