We are thrilled to announce The Dirty Tones as part of our 2023 lineup! The Dirty Tones based in Auckland New Zealand are one of NZ’s best blues bands. They’ve recorded four EPs, had international radio play, headlined festivals and their song Can’t Stop Drinking Blues went to number 4 on a global blues chart. They keep a great tempo and will be sending you home with happy memories of a great time. They’re not just music, they’re entertainment and showmanship; delivering a whole river of party.
Big T sings vocals and plays guitar, Mad Dog drives the bass line and Wilksy hits the skins. They are joined by regular guests: Sean Lurman on lead guitar, Joy Halliday on keys and vocals; and the amazing Neil “Harp Man” Clarke who will rock the blues harmonica till you cry.
Sean recently won five gold medals and was overall winner in the open category for all instrumentalists at the World Championships of Performing Arts – WCOPA 2023 recently held in Anaheim, California.
