Fresh after opening for Slash at Vector arena, touring Germany and England, Kara Gordon and the Wreckage come to you with a homecoming show.
Joe Satriani: "One of the most prolific young players I've ever seen".
GAANZ: "With an explosive yet sensitive style"
Garry Sharp: "Kara's playing style is stunning to behold, a mix of dazzling virtuosity, impassioned emotion and hummingbird accuracy. For the G-Taranaki event, Kara has been especially invited to perform alongside the legendary Glenn Hughes, a first for a Kiwi musician",
Kara Gordon is called all sorts of things at his gigs, a Maori gypsy, the white Hendrix, a musical genius, part man - part guitar, a mystic playing straight from his soul. One thing is for sure - the man can play. Kara and his band The Wreckage have been making people take notice both in New Zealand and internationally. They left the audience screaming for more when opening for Slash at Vector Arena, played to a sold out crowd at the Jazz Cafe in London with Alabama 3, and made a definite impression at a festival in Frankfurt. Their new album has dropped and they're bringing it to Napier.
Kara Gordon and the Wreckage are set for great things, and this is just the beginning.
