BOP Blues Club Inc.
PO Box 1482, ROTORUA 3040


President - Paul Hindrup

Originally born and raised in Rotorua, Paul has been playing drums and percussion in bands of various sorts since he was at high school.  His influences have come from multiple genres that have encompassed blues, rock, and jazz.  Paul is currently involved in a local blues trio, and also continues to play in pub cover bands for the fun of it.   He has also previously taught at schools as an itinerant music teacher and is always keen to pass knowledge on to the younger generation.  If not working or jamming, he can found with either a wakeboard on the feet, or a fishing rod in the hand.


Vice President - Peri Grant


Secretary - Di Riddel

Treasurer - Sue Baker
“Hi I'm Sue. I have always had a strong interest in all types of music. I was asked to assist with the 2015 Blues Festival Committee with the planning and marketing. A very successful Festival. After this our then Club Secretary was required to return to South Africa and I became the back-up Secretary. One thing leads to another and now I am the current Treasurer. I do come from a background of banking and accounting.
I thoroughly enjoy my involvement with the BOP Blues Committee - a strong mix of individuals whose commitment to the Club is admired. Our Muso's and members. It's great to catch up with all on Jam nights and see what a our Team can organise.. I Look forward to meeting up with you all.”
