Midge Marsden is back by popular demand and joining him on the Blues at Blockhouse Bay bill are the talented Kendall Elise and The Solomon Cole Band.

Midge Marsden is a legendary Kiwi rhythm and blues performer whose musical beginnings started in the 60s with The Breakaways. Midge has toured locally and internationally and is a top-notch performer – don’t miss this show!

Born on the wrong side of the tracks in a town called Papakura, Kendall Elise brings a magic blues-country vibe that’s slow-burning or foot stomping, with flawless vocal delivery and a hint of darkness.

The ultimate blues-trance, rock ‘n’ roll crossover, the music of Waiheke's The Solomon Cole Band rides the knife-edge of desire and desolation. The quartet dishes out roots-based songs that capture the essence of traditional-meets-modern, all wrapped up in vocal-driven malady.
