This event features artists from Wellington's Capital Blues Club, which celebrates it's 10th anniversary in 2011.

‘Manalishi' pay tribute to the wonderful blues of early-era Fleetwood Mac. Their set list covers the full range of material from that time, ranging from two songs performed by Peter Green while still with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers all the way through to the last songs recorded by Peter with the band, ‘Man of the World' and ‘Green Manalishi'. Along the way, there's a whole range of blues material to be enjoyed, ranging from straightforward blues shuffles featuring slide guitar in the style of Elmore James to the complex jazz based ‘Jigsaw Puzzle Blues'.

Dave Murphy: Well-known Wellington-based blues guitarist/singer Murphy fronts the Red Dogs Saloon Band, delivering his impassioned interpretations of classic as well as lesser known Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Louis Jordan and Mississippi John Hurt songs in his inimitable style. Murphy cut his teeth with the Juke Jivers and Hot Leftovers, and is also a regular on the solo/duo performance circuit with his acoustic guitar. Expect a mixture of pre-war blues, a smattering of country blues as well as some solid, wailing and rocking blues - bring your dancing shoes.

Dougal Speir: After finding notoriety and some fame with the legendary Mangawekas, Dougal has played with just about everybody from Sonny Day to Darren Watson and then some. Known for his uncanny ability to wring harmonics from even a ukulele (!!), his free-ranging lead guitar work is what makes him a stand out player. His guitar duels with Murphy can be incendiary.

Elliotte Fuimaono: The 'Big Easy', rock solid and so, so musical, the in-demand bass player for every occasion and a great singer to boot. Currently also the bass player of choice with Darren Watson's blues band, Elliotte anchors the Dogs with consummate ease and taste.

Roger Watkins: Mr "Two-and-Four Rules" - don't expect solos and flash, just a solid groove and great feel that comes from years on the scene. He's most at home these days with nailing down the blues groove of the Dogs.
