About the artists:

“Nigel Gavin is one of New Zealand’s musical treasures. The eccentric range of his musical projects is matched only by his astonishing virtuosity with stringed instruments and his prodigious musical imagination. Guitarists will be simply astonished by the technique on display here. Nigel’s finger-picking is so fast, so smooth, and so laden with sudden virtuoso explosions that it is damn near impossible to work out either what he’s doing, or how he’s doing it.” - Tauranga Weekend Sun

The DeSotos - “A powerful blend of rock-infused country blues.”

The DeSotos have cemented their place as New Zealand's leading exponents of the Americana / country blues genres following the release of two albums that have been universally embraced by the critics. 
2008's “Cross Your Heart” was voted Manu Taylor's no 1 New Zealand album of the year, and the 2011 release “Your Highway For Tonight” has received glowing reviews nationally and in the US. 

Both albums have supplied the theme and continuity music to the TVNZ South and North series presented by Marcus Lush. 


And their live show steps it up a notch further – 4 part harmonies, rootsy Gretsch guitar, Hammond organ with Leslie, and a rock solid rhythm section make for a tight and dynamic live sound that is as exciting as it is unique.
