Borich Band Rocks On

Borich Band Rocks On

Who: Kevin Borich
Where: Premier Hotel
When: Sunday June 19, 2005

I FIRST saw Kevin Borich in Newcastle as a young guitarist with a band called The La De Das as the support act for The Manfred Mann Earth Band in the early '70s.

Since then Borich has forged his musical style with energy and dedication.

He has performed with legendary players such as Carlos Santana, Joe Walsh and, more recently, as support for Peter Frampton during his Australian tour.

Originally from New Zealand, Borich has stood the test of time as a vital part of the rich, live music heritage in this country while establishing himself as one of our finest blues/ rock performers.

Fresh from a memorable live performance, with guest Mal Eastick, at The Empire Hotel's Sydney Blues Stage, Borich will return to Newcastle to play favourites from past releases such as Live At The Big Kahuna as well as music from his latest release Nomad. It will be an opportunity to catch a rare glimpse of The Kevin Borich Express, including son Lucius Borich on drums and legendary bassist Harry Brus, at the Premier Hotel on Sunday from 4pm.

Tickets are limited and only available at hotel. CDs will be on sale at the gig or at kevinborich.com.au ql By MIKE MAHER* bif* Mike Maher will present his next Bluesnight show on 2NUR FM 103.7 on Friday, July 1, from 8-11pm.
