The Back Room, Lotus Realm, Thames


Blues 'n' roots favourites Kokomo have a new album - Sunset Claws - and are itching to get on the road again. And it's been a long time since they visited Thames.


With a full six-piece band, Kokomo will present a bunch of new songs along with favourites from through the years, from old Delta blues to the band's own.


This is a small venue and numbers are strictly limited - get in quick!

KOKOMO  Hailing from the sunny Bay of Plenty, Kokomo (originally “Kokomo Blues”) has been together now since the 1990s, and has become renowned for dynamic live shows and smart distinctive song-writing, as well as the band’s unique harmonica-trumpet horn section.   During this time Kokomo has toured extensively throughout New Zealand, performing at the country’s major rock, blues, jazz and folk festivals, and the band has grown in size to a full-on six-piece while still dipping back into its roots as an acoustic guitar/harmonica/bass trio.  


Between touring the band has released twelve albums and a live concert DVD. The first two were collections of traditional blues, while subsequent albums predominantly feature the band’s own songs. 


Tickets $25 from Eventfinda or at Lotus Realm 07 868 5341 - 714 Pollen St, Thames.
