Embracing the spirit and sounds of the 1960s and 1970s, Taranaki band The Blistered Fingers will serve up a sizzling and soulful show.

In this lunchtime concert, the group will perform rock ‘n’ roll blues from those decades, including songs from The Beatles.

They will also play original songs, some of which are bluesy and cruisey and others that are upbeat and energetic.

Karl Raubenheimer, Jimmy Hick, Kerr Sharpe-Young, Ashley Gesterkamp and Waru Hetet are the crew, who play everywhere, from 80th birthday parties to pubs and clubs.

During the past four years, they have performed gigs in London, Europe, and some members have even played in Africa. The band has supported groups like Cornerstone Roots, but these days they headline their own shows.

The Blistered Fingers have one self-titled 12-track album, which showcases their own songs.

To the point: Spirit of 1960s and 1970s, sizzling and soulful, upbeat and energetic, bluesy and cruisey, covers and originals.
