Legendary Blues rock powerhouse duo Swamp Thing returns to the Naki for a one night only concert.

Swamp Things energetic live performance are re-known - playing like it was their last, making a sound that reaches far back into the musical DNA of roots music. Formed by former John Butler Trio drummer Michael Barker in 2010, with fellow Kiwi Grant Haua on vocal and guitar, the two man Blues/Roots explosion and ability to entertain and captivate an audience is a testament to the dedication and passion Barker and Haua have for their music.

Haua's unique vocal sound is deep and gravelly in timbre and has earned praise from his contemporaries, his guitar style on both electric and acoustic exudes passion for the blues. Baker's multi-tasking instrumental skills lay a solid foundation and full sound that drives Swamp Thing through soundscapes from brooding tension to high energy dance-inspiring groove. They have captivated audiences around New Zealand and the Globe - Tickets are guaranteed to go fast for this winter gig.
