Guitar virtuoso Paul Ubana Jones and blues legend Bullfrog Rata team up for a night of riveting soul and toe tapping richness.
Paul Ubana Jones was playing guitar by the age of 11, beginning a three decade career that would see him cross continents, record seven albums and become a New Zealand institution. His unforgettable acoustic style and heart-rendering vocals are not to be missed.
Bullfrog Rata is one of New Zealand's premier blues artists and has played with an impressive list of acts including Tina Turner, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Charley Pride, Junior Wells and Canned Heat. His brand of earthy, primal blues will take you back to the heart of the Mississippi.
