Today's band on New Zealand Live, comes accompanied by a love story.   Two people from opposite sides of the Tasman whose musical worlds collided at the Sydney Conservatorium.  Both Andy Keeghan and Toni Randle had independently settled on music careers when they found they shared many of the same philosophies.  A musical partnership was formed which has since developed into a life partnership and soon blossomed into a band.

Eyreton Hall have recorded their second album but are awaiting some more crowd funding to complete post production and they aim to have the project finished by October  .
