Hurricane Shayn Wills on guitar, harmonica and vocals, the unstoppable Bullfrog Rata on bass and vocals and the indomitable Des Mallon on drums, add Zephyr Wills as a mighty support act and your nights entertainment is secure! So we know about the “old guard” – but here’s a little about Zephyr:
Zephyr Wills is a student of classical viola under the tutelage of New Zealand String Quartet violist Gillian Ansell, at the New Zealand School of Music. Growing up the son of a Blues musician, it would be virtually impossible NOT to pick up some guitar interests. In a ‘worlds colliding’ moment, Zephyr has finally been persuaded to put both acts together. Zephyr plays guitar and sings original and compelling tunes and often plays with Shayn as one half of the father and son duo Wills and Wills. Zephyr playing support for the Zephyr Hunters is the perfect start to an awesome night of live blues.
