Rusty Greaves started the first Country Music club in New Zealand in the 1950's, then in the early 1970's they started to spread round New Zealand. Bruce started going to the club every week where he learnt to get up on stage and sing in front of an audience. He learnt to play a guitar by watching others, going home and practicing the chords he saw. At the age of 19 he formed his own band called the "Trend Setters". The band was very successful, booked out every week for 15 years playing in the (expired link) sport, socials, weddings etc. Bruce became a very good yodeler and went on to win The New Zealand Golden Guitar awards.
