THE KEVIN BORICH BAND
November Last was very busy for Kevin – playing the New Zealand version of “The Last Waltz” 22nd November Christchurch – 23rd Wellington & Auckland 24th then his own Annual Sydney Harbour Cruise on the 25th – the main scoop the New Zealand version of the last Waltz show was that the promoters Liberty Stage, had Garth Hudson the original Keyboard player at 79yrs. playing in the show, an amazing experience along with Ace musical Director – Keyboards & Producer John Simon added authenticity.
