Introducing Tony Painting and the Power.

Tony Painting and The Power have become firm favourites with the music loving public and musicians alike. Fronted by UK born guitarist and vocalist Tony Painting their special brand of blistering guitar based boogie blues/rock is a real show stopper. But don't make the mistake in thinking this band only plays it fast and loud. There is a liberal sprinkling of songs with soft melodic blues jazz fusion undertones that can’t help but impress the hardest rockers.

Notably known for their blues/rock styling's Tony and The Power can and do cover a wide range of musical genres or styles and depending on the venue or function for which they have been hired you could expect to hear them play anything from Stevie Wonder to Dire Straits,Santana to The Beatles. Unlike other blues stylised bands the depth and collective experience within The Power mean they can just about play anything. The key to this is a lineup of seasoned musicians with diverse musical backgrounds (see bios).

Tony Paintings UK roots are well known having spent the better part of the '70s, '80s and '90s as a working musician (see bios) touring the many pubs and clubs in the UK and later after the release of his “Band of Gypsy's” album where Tony penned all but two of the songs was invited to either support or play with some of the UK’s best-known artists including UB40,Jools Holland Big Band, Ozzy Osborne, Ruby Turner and Robert Plant.

Tony and the band have played at prestigious events including the Fiji Jazz and Blues Festival, the Samoa Jazz and Blues Festival, and has toured the country with the NZ Jazz and Blues Festivals shows in Whangarei, Matakana and Ngatea and is a regular at The Kings Arms, Biddy Mulligans in Hamilton, and The Juice Bar He can also tour this act as the NZ Stevie Ray Vaughan Tribute show.
