BATTALION


BIO: Battalion is an 8 piece band, with it's members residing in Auckland, Ngaruawahia and Te Awamutu. The name Battalion is derived from the band's respect and admiration of the Maori Battalion and their contributions to Aotearoa. It is their own way of honouring and paying homage to not only those from the Maori Battalion but to all of our fallen soldiers of Aotearoa New Zealand. Battalion or Batta-Lion as they are also known, are primarily a reggae band but appreciate all types of music. Preferring not to be anchored to one particular type of music their repertoire and influences also include Rock, Blues, Jazz, RnB, Country and of course Cultural and Ethnic music.
