    "White was not long out of school and living in Hamilton when he discovered the blues. He was in a low mood one evening and while walking past a porch where two blokes were having a beer, he heard Eric Clapton’s live version of Double Trouble on their stereo. The music was an epiphany. He phoned a Gisborne musician friend to say he’d found God. “At that moment I switched from rock to blues.”

    Right, we’re back down at the Brew bar again, to give it its common name, on The Strand and a bit of warming winter blues. A couple of visitors are coming to town, a blues duo from down Gisborne way. Eastslide Blues are Doug Snelling and Ernie White who play raw driving blues, two electric guitars with plenty of nods to the likes of Howling Wolf and John Lee Hooker. They’ve played at blues festivals in Gisborne and Rotorua and popped up last year as special guests in Mount Maunganui at a Hop House Blues Friday Session and are well worth a look. Kicking off at 4pm, no charge.
