'Billy TK Jnr and the Groove Shakers' have been touring Australia and New Zealand since October 2012 on their Australasian Blues Benediction Tour to critical acclaim following the release in NZ of Blues Benediction.

This coming visit to the Mangawhai Tavern will be one of the last chances for people to see Billy perform before heading overseas for international touring.

The great reviews come hot on the heels of Billy’s acclaimed performances at the Sydney Blues & Roots Festival in October and four major shows in Melbourne including a standout performance at the legendary ‘Espy’ Esplanade Hotel music venue in St Kilda.

Following the Australian tour Billy TK Jnr and The Groove Shakers toured New Zealand with USA blues band ʻThe Mofo Party Bandʼ from California in a grueling 10 date tour of the North and South Islands of New Zealand of festivals, wineries and venues. A recent appearance on TVNZ’s popular ‘Good Morning Show’ confirmed his status as one of NZ’s best blues based performers. ( extra-181012-billy-tk-video-5140445)

Billy TK Jnr & The Groove Shakers have released their new album the amazing ‘Blues Benediction’ through MGM Australia and via Southbound Records in NZ in October 2012, just in time for the tour.

The album will be released across Australia in April 2013 followed by another Australian tour, 2 festival performances in Europe and dates in the USA.

Billy TK Jnr feels he has a totally polished album ready for the global market place.

“They say that everything is about timing and this album feels like it has 'arrived' at the right location at the right time - I have recorded 2 albums in the past but none of them have ever felt or sounded as good as this - it is kind of a reflection of where I am at in my life' - I am very proud of this album and what I now have for the world to listen to is up there with the music of my heroes who inspired me to play.” Billy TK Jnr.

Special guest support act for this tour is up and coming blues kiwi guitar star Robert Lock and his power blues trio 'Third Degree'.

Auckland based Robert Lock counts Peter Green, Muddy Waters and Billy TK Jnr himself as influences on his playing career. Robert passes comment “This is a real opportunity for me and I look forward to supporting Billy to make this a great show - it’s really exiting’.

Billy TK Jnr and The Groove Shakers with The Robert Lock Power Blues Trio will be performing at selected venues across New Zealand.
