Only once before have these two crossed paths before and it was like a couple of brothers that had never met, seeing each other for the first time.

The music was inspiring, fresh and without limitations. They were meant to perform together!

Don’t miss the chance to witness this special experience from two of NZ’s prolific performers as it may be some time before this happens again.

Kara Gordon

Joe Satriani; "One of the most prolific young players I’ve ever seen".

GAANZ; "With an explosive yet sensitive style".

Garry Sharp; "Kara's 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 twelve months has seen him play London, and Europe and as part of New Zealand’s Fly My Pretties.

Aaron Tokona

Kim Dot Com; ““He is incredible, phenomenal and amazing!”.

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.
