Gavin Marriott JP is a retired New Zealand music promoter and former London paramedic, born in Christchurch NZ. He wrote the lyrics and arranged the NZ Army’s only original march –Hauraki. He organised the centenary of NZ’s most famous march, Invercargill by Alex Lithgow, and re wrote the lyrics. Gavin’s research shows that Invercargill was initially composed whilst Alex was conductor of Woolston Brass in 1901. Gavin has written an autobiography, Get A Life, which features the manuscript of this tune.
