Ascension Band was formed by Dave Edwards (see http://www.fiffdimension.co.nz/davemusic.htm) for the Meatwaters Festival at Happy in 2003.  We performed a structured improvisation loosely based on 'Ascension' by John Coltrane.
 
 
The first lineup was:
 
Dave Edwards & San Shimla - guitars

Sam Prebble & Antony Milton - violins

Sam Stephens & Tim McVicar - bass guitars

Nigel Patterson - keyboards
