This October - exciting new kid on the Blues Block Jack Broadbent makes his first appearances in New Zealand with three shows
in Christchurch, Wellington, and Auckland.

This talented singer/songwriter started his career with humble beginnings busking and has since been leaving audiences spellbound with his live shows and unique style of slide guitar. Raised in rural England and with a musician father, Jack was brought up on a diet of music that could later be described as his main influences, including acts such as John Lee Hooker, Peter Green, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. In a modern day context, Jack draws inspiration from these blues legends but also adds a more current songwriting sensibility with a sound that sits comfortably amongst such acts as The Derek Trucks Band and Government Mule. With both feet firmly planted in an authentic blues style, Jack Broadbent is now making waves globally as one of the most exciting modern bluesmen of our time. Jackís slide performances are attracting millions of views online and a rapidly expanding fan base. Experiencing Jack Broadbent live is an opportunity not to be missed.
