Glenn Ross Campbell is a bit of a legend, & not just in New Zealand. Here's some of what Wikipedia says about him:
Glenn Ross Campbell (born April 28, 1946) is a child prodigy steel guitarist, most noted for being lead guitarist of cult band, The Misunderstood, a psychedelic rock band that originated in Riverside, California in the mid-1960s. The band moved to London early in their career, and although they recorded only a handful of songs before being forced to disband, they are considered highly influential in the then-emerging genre. Influenced by The Yardbirds, the distinctive feature of their sound was Campbell's steel guitar. Rolling Stone Magazine, in a September 2, 2004 review describes Campbell as Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page rolled into one..

When The Misunderstood disbanded, British backing musicians were recruited and the name was changed to Juicy Lucy, who made the charts in the UK in 1970 with a rendition of the Bo Diddley song Who Do You Love', and released two successful albums.

After the break-up of Juicy Lucy, Campbell was hired to play back up for Joe Cocker, with whom he toured the US. He also played with Sammy Hagar, and with Steve Hoard, and also with Rod Piazza's Dirty Blues Band.

Glen & Mark will be playing an eclectic mix of covers & originals. There's no cover charge (just a koha jar on the counter) & Cafe One2One has a wonderful atmosphere, with good food & beverages on hand too.
