Connan and the Mockasins started as a "blues-pop" band from Wellington, New Zealand.
The group consisted of Connan Hosford (vocals, guitar), Ross Walker (upright acoustic bass) and Seamus Ebbs (drums).

In April-May 2006, the band released their second EP, 'Uuu It's Teasy', and toured New Zealand to promote the album. They played a fund-raising New Zealand show in Wellington on the 26th of May, 2006, before relocating to London on the 30th.

After a series of successful concerts in London, the band visited New Zealand again for a national 2006/2007 Summer tour.

In 2007, the band moved from London to village in East Sussex south of England. Ross Walker was replaced by James Milne, of Lawrence Arabia and Reduction Agents fame, on bass guitar. The band then played CMJ festival in New York. Towards the end of 2007 Ebbs left the band to pursue his career shortly before Hosford returned to New Zealand for a national tour in 2008 with a new lineup and changing his name to Connan Mockasin.
