It’s no surprise that the prestigious Black Rose Acoustic Society in Colorado USA describes Australian guitarist, Nick Charles, as “a world class stylist and composer”. His dazzling, melodic fingerpicking on 6 and 12 string guitars, stinging slide and a lifetime’s stories and songs from the musical highway has him labelled by the Melbourne Age as “Australia’s virtuoso of acoustic roots and blues”

During an extensive and acclaimed career, Nick has released many albums on major roots and guitar music labels. He has garnered world-wide recognition for a series of releases on Black Market Music, beginning with “My Place” and now his most recent albums, “Closer to Home” and “Return of the Travelling Fingerpicker”. This recognition has succeeded in having Nick signed to the Grammy award winning label, Solid Air Records USA (“Home of the world’s finest guitarists”). Averaging 150 shows a year in Australia, New Zealand the USA and the UK, his music encompasses an eclectic mix of acoustic roots including blues, folk and early ragtime jazz.

Mike Garner is a well respected BOP acoustic blues musician with a string of albums and overseas tours to his credit and is a regular favourite at Brew - in both Rotorua and Tauranga. The last time these two played together was opening for the 2010 Mission Estate concert -"The Motown Event" in February. The headliners were The Four Tops, The Temptations, The Miracles, Martha and the Vandellas and Jimmy Barnes.

"Part of the fun of going to New Zealand for me is getting to hear Mike Garner. He's one of my favorites." - Doug MacLeod

"I’ve been enjoying, the latest offering from Rotorua bluesman Mike Garner, Why a Woman Gets the Blues - Mike’s fine voice and ability to write songs that are new yet sound like recently unearthed lost treasures." - SunLIve, Tauranga Aug 2011
