Kickstarting a spring live music series at venerable Waiheke institution The Oyster Inn is calypso-blues guitarist Tom Rodwell. Expect a tasty and witty afternoon of vintage rhythm & blues, soul and calypso music from the man described by the NME as “Sheffield’s answer to Lightnin’ Hopkins.”

Fresh from an acclaimed album and tour project with legendary NZ songwriter Don McGlashan, Rodwell has toured extensively in the UK, Switzerland, Holland and the US and has opened with his band Storehouse for artists including Leon Russell, Charles Bradley, C.W. Stoneking, Son of Dave, John Butler Trio, Trinity Roots, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, and Derek Trucks, who remarked “You don’t hear that anymore; beautiful tunes, beautiful groove!"

His uniquely dance-orientated take on rhythm and blues music takes influences from calypso, slave-era spirituals and West African juju music - making his playing thoughtful, hard to categorise, yet instantly accessible, and bursting with salacious and surreal lyrics.

"By turns wild, angry, hypnotic and sensual, it’s as uncompromising as it is funky and some of the best live music I’ve seen,” remarked Blues in London.
