One of New Zealand’s foremost harmonica players, Neil Billington, will be returning to the Blues Club, backed by the consummate skills of Deane Hunter on guitar, Ross McDermott on bass and Richard Te One on drums.
Neil is a regular performer at festivals around the country and overseas – he is a long-time performer in Japan – and brings to the stage his repertoire of electrifying Chicago blues, combined with a swinging West Coast sound, a touch of jazz and a few other musical surprises thrown into the mix. Deane Hunter is one of the most individual and inventive guitar players on the local and national scene, while Ross McDermott is a master of the electric bass, and Richard Te One on drums is a true “shuffle king”, holding together a rhythm section of unsurpassed feel and drive. Fasten your selt-belts for a night of high octane blues.
