Virtual Blues



To remind you that we are here – a weekly YouTube playlist of NZ blues gigs. 
Yes, we know you can do it all by yourselves, no doubt – but it’s fun. Each playlist will be about an hour long. Unless I get carried away…Online (usually) blues gigs with an NZ focus. 
On Saturday from 5-9.45 Cuba Dupa are giving us in home entertainment with their Go Home Stay Home initiative… link

Keep an eye out for the Bluz Club dad, Pip Payne – he’s been doing some live work on facebook too. https://www.facebook.com/paynepip

The very clever Under The Radar has put up a section of Online gigs. They’re not all blues, but they are gigs!

 This week:
Took a (Wellington-centric) trip around the North Island found some songs, buskers, jams, Londons at their home, and a guitar lesson for all of you that have enough strings for your guitars!
Thanks for all of the emails of encouragement, you’re all stars! This week I looked for NZ blues selections including many of our faves and a couple of furriners from Up North.
I get lots of interesting things in me inbox, including Andrew London’s newsletter – a highly recommended read. It prompted me to add his Live at the Londons’ gig onto the playlist – So while you’re watching – perhaps hit the sign up link! (Music starts at about 3 mins with the very funny Appliances)
This week we have fab single songs from Jake Stokes, The Tempests; Jams from from Mainstreet in the 80’s (I was probably there…but I’d never remember!) and the Realm in Hataitai (I remember this one); Street work from Auckand and Rotorua; A concert from the London’s and a lesson from Chris Armour! Phew – after that I felt like I’d played a gig meself!
Also don’t forget to look for sign up links, tip jars etc – Musicians are a bit “not earny” at the moment – so perhaps put the price of the pint you’re saving into the tip jar!
 Enjoy please, and please stay well!
