Rock / Hard



SCARPA FLOW, is a collaboration of three local Hawke’s Bay musicians who have decided to combine their musical talents to form a band with a distinctive ambient and acoustic rock vibe.


All having a keen interest in rock bands and easier listening groups, SCARPA FLOW have skilfully transformed their songs into an acoustic flavoured repertoire and are able to entertain anyone young and old.


SCARPA FLOW are also about testing their creative fibre, and are currently writing their own material which they intend to play amongst their repertoire of well-known covers. 



Dale Grant

Dale has been in local music circles for a number of  years. He has sung for covers bands such as Mansize Rooster and Pulse. More recently Dale was in the local original rock band Valve and is now singing in Verdant Blue and Metallicover. Dale is regarded as one of Hawke’s Bays most versatile rock vocalists.  For Dale, SCARPA FLOW represents a more relaxed and laid back feel.




Mike Carian

Mike is the solid rhythm guitarist for SCARPA FLOW. Having only played guitar for a few years, Mike thoroughly enjoys entertaining any and every audience with a “just do it” approach to pretty much everything. SCARPA FLOW is Mike’s second musical endeavour having also played in the band Valve previously. Mike is the master of enthusiasm with a wicked sense of fun to match. Smiles, laughs and good times are a given when this lad is around.


Eugene Valler

Eugene is a well-known Hawke’s Bay musician/guitarist. Sharper than sharp with all things guitar, with a bit of vocals thrown in the mix also add to his many years of experience in various musical line-ups. You might recognise him from the local band Verdant Blue, or from his lead guitarist skills when playing for Metallicover.  Two words sum him up …guitar master… that’s Eugene in a nutshell.


Let SCARPA FLOW entertain your function/party/afternoon/evening, with their professional, yet laid back musical prowess. They will play something for everyone and leave your audience impressed and wanting more.  Talented, tasteful and something a little different, that’s us, that’s SCARPA FLOW.
