The Drab Doo-Riffs

The Drab Doo-Riffs were a surf punk, rock and roll and 'spockabilly' quintet from Auckland. Formed in 2007, the group grew out of a series of songs written and demoed by bandleader Karl Steven in 2006 while he was living in the UK.

Since formation, the band line-up has been Karl Steven (harp and vocals), Lucy Stewart (guitar), Caoimhe MacFehin (vocals and percussion), Michael Vincent Sperring (drums) and M.F Joyce (bass).
