Greystone Wines sponsor. International Kiwi blues guitarist Billy TK Jnr to close Rock Gas Hanmer Springs 2012 Jazz & Blues Festival!

Limited tickets: $25.00 - part proceeds to local Volunteer Fire Brigade.

Greystone Wines Waipara Valley proudly presents International Kiwi guitar sensation Billy TK Jnr and his band The Groove Shakers at the Hanmer Springs 2012 Jazz and Blues Festival at a festival finale just confirmed.

Billy TK Jnr is on a roll - he has just co headlined the Fiji 2011 International Jazz & Blues Festival, The Sydney Blues Festival with performances in Australia as well as being only a small handful of NZ artists invited to perform at the 2012 Tauranga Jazz Festival with Keb Mo and Earth Wind and Fire.

“I closed the Sydney festival on the main stage which is awesome for a little Kiwi fella like me,” he laughs during a recent interview. He says that as he prepares for more shows over New Zealand, Australia and in the Pacific and finishing an album.

Billy has toured widely in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. Supporting Jimmy Barnes at the 'A Day on the Green' concert series, Billy was invited to play lead guitar with Barnesy as special guest on two songs after recording critically acclaimed albums and touring with George Thorogood, the Neville Brothers, Junior Wells, Mississippi Willie Foster and Joe Satriani.

According to George Thorogood, “Billy has got the whole blues guitar thang down.” Aussie guitar hero Ian Moss has described Billy as playing “like Stevie Ray Vaughan on steroids!”

So what can people expect from a Billy TK Jnr show? Billy says 'The best thing to say is they can expect to hear some passionate and powerful blues guitar playing of the electric kind'!

All this at the Heritage in Hanmer Springs to end what is going to be a great festival for Hanmer Springs and lucky guests!
