The Rotorua Blues Festival - 29 May to 3 June. Continuous bands playing in various venues in downtown Rotorua over Queen's Birthday Weekend. See festival website for full details.

EastSlide Blues - Raw East Coast blues at its best delivered by Ernie White and Doug Snelling - two East Coast musos who know, live and love the blues. Both are frontman for what most East coasters say are the best blues bands in the region and have joined forces to create a duo dedicated to blues. Influences are primarily from the Chicago blues scene - more Westside than South - Magic Sam, Otis Rush, Buddy Guy with plenty of other greats in the mix.

Although an excellent blues guitar player, Ernie has a superb voice and has been focusing on singing the blues. Doug Snelling was born in Canada's steel town, Hamilton, Ontario and has been playing guitar and harmonica since mid teens. The two have appeared either solo, in the duo or band formats throughout the Eastern North Island as feature acts at the Rotorua Blues Festival (2011 and 2012), Eastland’s Harbour the Beat Festival (2011 and 2012), and at smaller cafes and bars.
