Originally from the UK, now based in Wellington, the versatile, talented and award-winning, internationally touring Blues & Roots singer-songwriter Mike Dr Blue brings you old classics, original songs, guitar, harmonica and a 'swinging bluesy pulse to accompany his raw-edged vocals' (Adelaide Advertiser). Expect to sing along, tap your feet, and maybe even dance in the aisles as you enjoy an evening of 'Authentic Blues mesmerising'(Broadway Baby).

Mike has played guitar in a folk band, flirted with Punk and played Country Folk and Blues, before fronting a band called 'Dr Blue & The Prescription'. 'The Prescription' played a mix of classics of Chicago-style Blues alongside Mike's original songs, and spent 10 fabulous years playing a variety of venues. This included a residency at the iconic 'Ain't Nothing But' in London's West End, where the band also recorded a live album in 2004. The band toured venues and festivals in the UK and Ireland, including Castlebar Blues, Blues Bar Dublin, Charlotte St. Blues, Round Midnight, and supported Nine Below Zero a couple of times at Wanstead Music in the Park.

In 2010, Mike wrote his first solo album, 'Heaven Bound'. Featuring all original songs, the album was written together with Sameena Zehra, over a summer spent in Kashmir (India) with the sound of birdsong and gunfire all around. The album was released at Arch 1 in London, in 2011. Mike has been touring solo ever since, at venues and festivals around the UK & Ireland and further afield to Europe, Australia and bringing him to New Zealand as well.

Dr Blue first came to Wellington in 2017, with two shows. ‘Nothing But The Blues’, (which does what it says on the tin), and the award-winning ‘Fiery Tongues’, a narrative poem set to his original music, played live by him on stage. Having fallen in love with Aotearoa- who wouldn’t?- he is here to stay. And what better way than a musician’s road trip to introduce himself to, and discover the delights of the country he now calls home.

Head over to their Bandcamp page to sample the songs, and then come and enjoy them live, with the man himself.

If it ain't the truth, it ain't the Blues.
