June 20, 2008

Legendary vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) will perform with a unique, Kiwi-based band when he plays the G-TARanaki International Guitar Festival on July 19 at the New Plymouth TSB Stadium in New Zealand. Although the erstwhile DEEP PURPLE star will be utilizing his regular Swedish keyboard player Anders Olinder, he will also be joined by three New Zealanders, guitarists Kara Gordon and Simon Koretz, plus drummer Nathan Koretz. Gordon is a winner of the recent Rock2Wgtn guitarist competition while the Koretz siblings regularly perform with their own Hamilton-based band 8FORTY8 as well as regularly performing tribute sets to LED ZEPPELIN, DEEP PURPLE and DREAM THEATER.

Other G-TARanaki performers include SCORPIONS legend Uli Jon Roth, Joe Satriani, ex-GUNS N' ROSES man Gilby Clarke, the ALEX SKOLNICK TRIO, fretless harp guitarist Tim Donahue, Kiwi icon Gray Bartlett, Vernon Reid of LIVING COLOUR, Matthew Marshall, Brian Hatcher, Darren Broughton, Ross Halliday, Frank John and a host of others.
