The Desotos

About The Desotos:

‘A powerful blend of rock-infused country blues.’

The DeSotos have cemented their place as one of New Zealand’s leading exponents of the Americana / country blues genres following the release of two albums that have been universally embraced by the critics.

2008’s ‘Cross Your Heart’ was voted Manu Taylor’s no 1 New Zealand album of the year, and the 2011 release ‘Your Highway For Tonight’ has received glowing reviews nationally and in the US.

Both albums have supplied the theme and continuity music to the TVNZ South and North series presented by Marcus Lush.

And their live show steps it up a notch further – 4 part harmonies, rootsy Gretsch guitar, Hammond organ with Leslie, and a rock solid rhythm section make for a tight and dynamic live sound that is as
exciting as it is unique.

Band members are:

Paul Gurney – lead vocals, guitars
Stuart McIntyre – bass, vocals
Ron Stevens – Hammond, keyboards, vocals
Michael Burrows – drums, vocals

Delaney Davidson

About Delaney Davidson:

Hailing from Lyttelton, New Zealand, part man part wheel, Delaney Davidson is part wandering minstrel, part travelling salesman.

One hand holds a small brown suitcase; his trade, his ghost orchestra, the other holds his guitar. One foot firmly in the Blues Trash corner of the ring, the other on the road, you could say Delaney sees music as he sees geography, and that although he has certain preferences, in fact all territories are up for grabs. Ireland, Germany, Italy, Brazil, UK, Switzerland, Mexico, Austria, Romania, Belgium, Holland, Russia, France, USA, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand, all destinations on the ten year Solo Tour with which Davidson has turned homelessness into a success of its own.

Man of a thousand faces, his work with paint, music, film and concept all has traces of his unique take on life. Part new world and part old world, this duality is echoed in the flavours he evokes with his work; Past VS present, too loud for folk VS too quiet for rock, Light VS Dark, Davidson’s restless work refuses to be still for the portrait it is asked to sit for. A pattern we see in his own restless life, indeed, the apple never falls far from the tree.

Dad Jokes

About Dad Jokes:

Auckland’s Most Obnoxious Garage Rock 2 Piece. This dynamic duo is: Matthew Wall and Ian Brown.

Born in 2011, Dad Jokes were brought together by their shared love of drinking bargain bin beer, eating pepperoni pizza, being jerks and bad jokes. Some of those interests may explain why Ian was kicked out of Canada and banished to the ends of the earth (Karangahape Road in this instance).
