Toni Swain Band

Toni Swain Band featuring Pete Cornelius

Fabulous rhythm and blues diva Toni Swain returns to the Bay of Islands after wowing the crowds last year.

Toni has been described as “world class” and “sophisticated”. An incredible voice and music that “defies categorisation” (Rhythms Magazine), blending blues, r & b, soul and jazz effortlessly in her original compositions.

Toni’s touring band features the cream of Australian jazz and blues players, lifting this band to the international stage. This tour will see one of Australia's top blues guitarists on board - Pete Cornelius, joined by the masterful Dave Folley on drums (Mick Thomas, Archie Roach, Vika & Linda), the mighty grooves of NZ's own Hal Tupaea on bass (LRB, Renee Geyer), and the gorgeous lounge sounds from George Bibicos – keyboards (Psycho Zydeco)

With musicians of this calibre you are guaranteed that the music will be outstanding, and delivered with style and panache.
