Fancy some gritty blues and hard
rock n roll?
Then head along to the Old Library
Community Art Centre on February
23.Auckland based band The DeSotos,
supported by Whangarei act Cake and
Eat it, will be performing.
Delivering a powerful blend of rock-
infused country blues, The DeSotos
combine rich harmonies with reverber-
ant guitar sounds, chunky bass runs
along with warm flourishes of a genu-
ine Hammond organ.
JAM TV recognised the dynamic feel
of the band when it featured its music
in the TVNZ South to North series.
Their debut album Cross Your Heart
(2008) was picked as album of the year
by leading critics and its follow up,
Your Highway For Tonight's fat sound
provided more delight with every spin
while garnering more great reviews.
The DeSotos are well-heeled travel-
lers on the Americana highway.
Vocalist Paul Gurney plays the
guitar and blues harp combining his
singing skills with insightful lead
guitar and songwriting duties. He uses
a mix of Gretsch and Fender guitars to
deliver his distinctively rootsy sound.
Paul is accompanied by Stuart
McIntyre on the bass and vocals, Ron
Stevens on the Hammond organ, key-
board and vocals and Michael Burrows
on drums and vocals.
We did a show up in Whangarei
last year and had a wonderful time.
The acoustics at the Old Library are
amazing and we were told it was the
best show many of our fans had atten-
ded all year , Paul says.
Admission is $15. Tickets 430 6432

Grey weather failed to stop the
action and sounds of the Classic
Hits Winery Tour at Tutukaka.
More than 1700 people of all
ages attended the concert at Tutu-
kaka s Marina Reserve on Febru-
While the numbers might have
been slightly lower this year
because of rain, those who did
attend the concert were rewarded
for their bravery with the rain
holding off until the very end.
A short solo performance by
New Zealand's Got Talent winner
Clara van Wel warmed up the
audience. The charming 15-year-
old singer, song writer and guitar-
ist performed original music and
Next up was The Adults featur-
ing Shihad frontman Jon Toogood,
Julia Deans from Fur Patrol, and
Shayne Carter from Straitjacket
Fits and Dimmer.
With an almost psychedelic rock
sound, the band impelled plenty of
people to get up and dance, led by
a couple of enthusiastic child fans.
Ultimate girl band Anika, Boh
& Hollie thrilled the large crowd
with their awe-inspiring voices.
Anika Moa, Boh Runga and
Hollie Smith were lively and the
interaction among the three art-
ists, all major music figures in
their own right, was matchless.
The evening finished with the
seven-piece masters of dub, Fat
Freddy s Drop, as the headline
The band s unrivalled reggae,
soul and R n B sound was enhan-
ced by a light show which had the
audience on their feet.
Although the venue in Tutu-
kaka is not a vineyard like nearly
all of the remaining 16 venues,
concert co-promoter Campbell
Smith still calls it one of his
What an amazing night. The
weather held on, the bands
delivered and the crowd was bril-
liant, he says.
He vowed to return. We love
coming to Tutukaka and after a
night like tonight we can t wait to
get back here next year.
