The DeSotos - “A powerful blend of rock-infused country blues”

The DeSotos have cemented their place as New Zealand's leading exponents of the Americana / country blues genres following the release of two albums that have been universally embraced by the critics. 2008's “Cross Your Heart” was voted Manu Taylor's no 1 New Zealand album of the year, and the 2011 release “Your Highway For Tonight” has received glowing reviews nationally and in the US.

Both albums have supplied the theme and continuity music to the TVNZ South and North series presented by Marcus Lush.

And their live show steps it up a notch further – 4 part harmonies, rootsy Gretsch guitar, Hammond organ with Leslie, and a rock solid rhythm section make for a tight and dynamic live sound that is as exciting as it is unique.

Paul Gurney – lead vocals, guitars
Stuart McIntyre – bass, vocals
Ron Stevens – Hammond, keyboards, vocals
Mike Burrows – drums, vocals
