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.

Fuelled by a powerful blend of rock country blues, The DeSotos combine rich harmonies with reverberant guitar sounds, chunky bass runs and warm flourishes of Hammond organ. chunky bass runs and warm flourishes of Hammond New Zealand style – Americana delivered with tasty Americana blends of rock and rocking blues. A sonic thrill to see live!

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.

The DeSotos:
Paul Gurney – lead vocals, guitars
Stuart McIntyre – bass, vocals
Ron Stevens – Hammond, keyboards, vocals
Vic Singe - drums, vocals
