My Honey Bunny and I saw the South Island Rhythm Kings at the Osborne Bay pub last evening and they were great! Mike is rocking as hard as he ever has and part of that is due to his son Carson tearing it up on guitar and vocals. Carson plays without a pick and has great tone. He's really nailing the sound for these guys and plays tons of tasty licks. He's not flashy but a true Blues band doesn't require that or really even need that! Carson plays all the right stuff at the right time with the right tone. Gotta love that! Now that he's getting older he's starting to look like a Blues veteran (wearing shades helps with that). 

 I had a nice conversation with Carson and told him how much I liked his style and playing.

four stars -VERY GOOD / TRES BON
