The Blues Room # 302

In this episode we are honoured to have in the studio, Hamilton musician, Max MacDonald and his mokopuna Lakeisha along with President of HBS, Tony Kaye. Max talks about his new EP which is out now and Tony fills us in on all the Blues happenings coming up in November, and what a lot of Blues happenings there are coming up too!!! Check Max's website for updates on what he's doing with the harmonica and check HBS's website for all the details on the upcoming gigs.

Then I interview Paul Wilson via the phone, Paul is the keyboardist for the Blues Buffet band.

Wanganui based R & B band, The Blues Buffet, incorporates a mix of popular and original compositions, putting on a never-stop, dance party featuring the styles and music of luminaries like Lucky Peterson, Eric Clapton, The Steve Miller Band, The Isley Bros, Johnny Winter, Little Charlie and the Nightcats and The Rolling Stones. They recorded their first CD last year called “Appetiser” with a second in the can.

The band has appeared in Blues, Brews and BBQs in Tauranga, and Jazz and Blues Festivals in Tauranga, Bay of Islands, Church Road, Manawhatu and the Hawkes Bay. Be warned, you won’t sit still when this band hits town.

Featuring: Fred Loveridge, Lead Guitar and vocals: Paul Wilson, Keyboards and vocals; Murray Loveridge, Bass and vocals and Nigel Bateman, Drums and vocals.
