SHAYN HURRICANE WILLS

Sunday 9th September | 4pm
The Thirsty Dog
469 Karangahape Road, Ponsonby
All Ages

An awesome afternoon of acoustic blues with Hurricane Shayn Wills right in the middle of Auckland City!
Albert King, Junior Wells, Robert Cray, John Hammond Jnr, Canned Heat, Duke Robilard. These names form the basis of the Blues as we know it today. To play support for one of these musicians could be a musician’s career highlight, but to have played support for all of them, you have to agree that musician would be of world class standard. Well, between 1992 and 2005 Shayn Wills played support for each one of these legendary innovative musicians.
Watching Wills play it becomes glaringly obvious he is something special. For starters his ability to play harmonica, guitar and sing at once is astounding and entertaining. His complex guitar rhythms, innovative harmonica riffs and melodic voice make him a must see act.
