Bluesman set for debut

Thursday, May 01, 2014

NEW Zealand bluesman Jesse Valach will kick-off his international music career at the Royal Suva Yacht Club when he performs at 6.30pm today.

His debut at the 2014 Fiji International Jazz & Blues Festival also marks his first-ever performance outside of New Zealand and Australia.

Originally from Tauranga in New Zealand, Valach resides in Melbourne, Australia. Although new to the international circuit, Valach has toured relentlessly amassing about 200 shows last year.

What makes this bluesman different from the others is his soulful rhythm and blues approach to the 12-bar jam.

Together with his outstanding band, Blues Mountain, Valach will take local music lovers and international guests on a musical journey from lights-down-low ballads to energetic shuffle romps.

One of the biggest moments in his career was when Valach performed alongside legendary US guitarist Robben Ford in 2011.
