Ever heard ‘He’s the answer to ‘who is the next Jimi Hendrix’? Well all those other guys fail in comparison! Because in Aotearoa we have not one but two answers to that question and you'll get to see both of them in action when they take each other on!

Aaron Tokona and Kara Gordon will be shredding, picking, and playing like music is their religion.

So if you want to see a guitar duel that will rival Slash and Zakk Wydle’s and put tears in Ralf Machio’s eyes, then be there.

Aaron Tokona
“He is incredible, phenomenal and amazing!” - Kim Dot Com

People make music for a variety of reasons, to make money (little musician’s joke there), to pick up girls or boys, because they like travelling in confined spaces in vans for extended periods of time or simply because they view life as a musician as glamorous.

Others do it simply because it’s as natural to them as breathing - it’s not just something they do, it’s a part of who they are. For these people, to do anything else but meld beats, lyrics and melodies together with their time is a foreign concept.

Aaron Tokona is such a musician.

In his hands a guitar talks. It’s the reason he’s also been dubbed "New Zealand’s answer to Jimi Hendrix" in the media multiple times.

His heart and soul punch you in the face every time he opens his mouth and sings. He strives to serve the song, not himself.

Kara Gordon
Joe Satriani; One of the most prolific young players I’ve ever seen

Gaanz; With an explosive yet sensitive style

Garry Sharp; Karas playing style is stunning to behold, a mix of dazzling virtuosity, impassioned emotion and hummingbird accuracy.

Kara Gordon is called all sorts of things at his gigs, a Maori gypsy, the white Hendrix, a musical genius, part man - part guitar, a mystic playing straight from his soul. One thing is for sure - the man can play. Kara has been making people take notice both in New Zealand and internationally. He left the audience screaming for more when opening for Slash at Vector Arena, played to a sold out crowd at the Jazz Café in Camden with Alabama 3, and made a definite impression at a festival in Frankfurt. The last six months has seen him play London, and Europe and as part of New Zealand’s Fly My Pretties and this summer he’ll embark on his first solo tour.
