Legendary NZ blues man, Bullfrog Rata, lays it down!
His brand of earthy, primal blues has been a work in progress, from standing on street corners, busking in towns like Levin and Wairoa to jaunts on jet planes to play in some of London's most packed bars.
Though known as a bluesman his tastes are many and varied and like all good amphibians he is at home on water or land. This could mean a driving Texas shuffle, or a sly West Coast swing, maybe a riveting acoustic ballad or a stinging slide solo perhaps?
"I do all sorts of things depending on what feels right, with me, and the vibe in the crowd at the time!" say's the man himself 'But blues is definitely the glue that holds the gumbo together!"
