The DeSotos

The DeSotos are a four piece band based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Paul Gurney - guitar & lead vocals; Stuart McIntyre - bass & vocals, Ron Stevens - Hammond organ, keyboards, acoustic guitar & vocals and Michael Burrows - drums & vocals.

The DeSotos have cemented their place as New Zealand's leading exponents of the Americana / country blues genres following the release of two albums that have been universally embraced by the critics.

2008's “Cross Your Heart” was voted Manu Taylor's no 1 New Zealand album of the year, and the brand new “Your Highway For Tonight” is receiving glowing 4 star reviews nationally.

Both albums have supplied the theme and continuity music to the TVNZ South and North series presented by Marcus Lush.

And their live show steps it up a notch further – 4 part harmonies, rootsy Gretsch guitar, Hammond organ with Leslie, and a rock solid rhythm section make for a tight and dynamic live sound that is as exciting as it is unique.
