The Shop Solo
The Shop (formerly Guitar Shop), a phrase coined by Marcus Roebuck and Louis Bragg of The Boogie Train Blues Band, Nelson.
Denny “The Shop”, guitarist, vocalist, and general provider of equipment and stuff for Coyote Blues Band and other Blues bands.
Lover of The Blues, guitars, dogs, sunshine, calm seas, archery, Coca Cola, olives, capsicums, Ducati, and a good syrah.
The Shop Solo Good-Time Blues performances are a quieter option to that of the whole band. Played on a BedRock Cigar Box acoustic guitar, Gibson ES137 Custom electric, Gibson Les Paul, and a Fender resonator guitar, as well as several other BedRock custom shop guitars. Shop also uses “Thumpa”, a small stage, 4 inches high with a tambourine and microphone inside, primarily to provide percussion. Shop does not use any backing tracks or drum machines etc, but occasionally uses a looper and all material copied to the looper is played live during the performance. Much of the material is similar to Coyote Blues Band. Amplification ranges from a tiny amp to a full PA system depending on the requirements of the client.
Artists covered include Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howling Wolf, Kym Wilson, ZZ Top, Eric Clapton, Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, The Doors, The Rolling Stones, Cream, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Led Zepplin, and more. Several Jimi Hendrix songs grace the set list at solo gigs. They lend themselves to acoustic interpretation so well, fun to play and fun to listen to.
Performances range from quiet and ambient to full-on party sound. The Shop is ideal for smaller venues such as dinner parties, small weddings and engagement parties, etc where a full band may take up more space than you wish.
The Shop is available for small to large private functions, bars, cafes, parties, weddings, corporate functions, house parties, etc. Please see contact page or call 027 444 5181 or email email@example.com
