Master blues man joins New Zealand big band.

American Bluesman Chris Cain joins The Rodger Fox Big Band in September for a series on concerts in New Zealand, before going into the studio to record a CD of the material performed on the tour.

Chris Cain hails from the USA and brings to the stage, a power packed performance of blues guitar and down home vocals. Add the full power of Rodger Fox’s 18 piece Big Band, this is going to be one helluva concert and CD.

Chris Cain’s bio is long, from touring New Zealand with the World Blues Revue, to being nominated for 6 “W.C. Hardy” awards, which is the blues world equivalent of receiving a Grammy nomination.

“One of the best blues men we have today” – Robben Ford

“Chris Cain’s a hot-shot guitarist and a singer with a relaxed style and mature expression of the old blues masters like Bobby Bland and B.B.King” – The Washington Post.

“His full-bodied tone and surprisingly big voice packed a punch that had me and other witnesses reeling” – Guitar Player Magazine

“More than anyone else, anywhere, Cain represents the future of the blues.” – San Jose Mercury News

“Hearing Cain, I get the same goosebumps that I used to get when I heard Albert King and Albert Collins perform.” – Bob Vorel, Blues Magazine

The Rodger Fox Big Band needs no introduction as being New Zealand’s premier jazz orchestra and is known for performing with a wide-range of artists and musical styles from Charlie Musselwhite – Midge Marden – Hammond Gamble - Randy Crawford – Michael Brecker – Freda Payne - Mike Stern – Joey De Francesco – Steve Smith – Dave Weckl – Gregg Bissonette – Kurt Elling – Patti Austin – Eric Marienthal – Bob Sheppard just the best band in the land.

And Erna Ferry – vocalist / blue harp player – Toured with the World Blues Revue – Robben Ford and Long John Baldry plus performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival.

Blending these high powered performers can only deliver a power packed show of big band blues / down home blues / electric blues – the blues.
