Gig Information

Dr. Marigaux plays twisted, original interpretation of blues and gospel with a searing intensity. The doc began playing blues back in the 1970s, and nowadays is knocking out audiences around Dunedin. Marigaux’s inspiration comes from Delta Blues, but his take on the genre is unusual and refreshing, transplanting the genre to New Zealand and finding new twists in traditional materials. Whether playing resonator guitar or baritone sax, his performances are full of passion and poetry. His rough vocals range from a gravely bark to an eerie falsetto and tell tales of fast cars, dinosaurs, lost women and Babylon. Dr. Marigaux is actually the stage name of film maker and musician Phil Davison, who originally created the Doctor’s character as an animation - until the character took on a real life performing role. This tale is told in the new film “Dealin’ with the Devil” premiering at the 2018 Doc Edge film festival in Auckland and Wellington.

As always Mark L will anchor the evening. There's no door charge but the koha teapot is on the bar (& will probably be passed around at some stage) & you're most welcome to place your contributions towards the music in there. The cafe fireplace will keep you nice & warm, as will delicious home-made winter soups & snacks - not to mention the friendly atmosphere.
