We perform as a four piece band, but share lead guitar duties. This consistent lineup has earned CTRL ALT ROCK a reputation for always delivering a great show.

Alister George
Bass Guitar, Vocals, Sound Engineering

“I don’t see the point in a five-string bass. What would I do with the other four strings?”

As the elder statesman of the band Alister brings a perspective and experience that comes from 30 years of playing live shows. His background in classical piano, synthesisers, and choirs, combined with his qualification in audio production gives him all the technical and musical ingredients that combine to make a great show. As the bass player, he is the most important member of the band.

Zaine Harding
Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Ukulele, Electrician

“How does this one start?”

Zaine started singing at the tender age of three and hasn’t stopped since. With years of experience singing in a number of genres from barber shop to heavy rock, Zaine has the versatility and charisma to really put on a show across an exceptionally broad range of songs. His skills as an electrician contribute to the smooth running of CTRL ALT ROCK events. As the lead singer and rhythm guitarist, he is the most important member of the band.

Nigel Tucker
Drums, Cowbell, Catering

“Too much cowbell?”

Specialising in energetic and refined playing, Nigel brings an energy that few drummers can match. He has the flexibility to play everything from acoustic ballads to heart-pounding rock. After the show, Nigel likes to save the caterers the hassle of cleaning up. As the drummer, he is useful for heavy lifting and is the most important member of the band.

Nick Burson
Lead Guitar, Saxophone, Vocals

“Did you hear when I introduced that Phrygian mode in the middle of my solo?”

In 2009 Nick completed his music degree and his soul filled guitaring was recognised with Massey University’s ‘Most Outstanding Guitarist Award’. Nick has played in all-sorts of groups from award winning choirs to full on original rock bands. Along the way he has picked up several other instruments, his Saxophone now an integral part of CTRL ALT ROCK. As the lead guitarist Nick thinks he’s better than Jordan and is the most important person in the band.

Jordan Mclean
Lead Guitar, Vocals, Long Hair

“I’m sure I can play it faster.”

Jordan has been studying and playing guitar from the age of 5. Having completed a Bachelor in Musical Arts he pursued creating his own guitar tutorial DVD ‘The Shred Method’ sharing his musical prowess with his guitar students. Using his sound knowledge of musical theory and technique Jordan rips through the most complicated solos with ease and knows just how to cut it back for a delicate love song. As the lead guitarist Jordan thinks he’s better than Nick and is the most important person in the band.
