JT + Agnostics with Holly Shepheard on Rakino, hell yes!

This February 5th 2022 you’re in for a special treat, Rakino!

It’s Waitangi Weekend and JT + Agnostics will be wending their way up from the Waikato to play a blues gig at the Rakino Hall. Rakino’s Holly Shepheard is featuring on vocals. It’s an outdoor gig because of ongoing covid restrictions, and I urge you to get along, because it’s going to be another memorably excellent Rakino event. Tickets are available here: https://www.rakino.org.nz/product/jt-agnostics-with-holly-shepheard/

John Thomson

John Thomson is the JT who sings and tells jokes and writes and arranges the songs with Maciek for JT+Agnostics.

I play bass – a 1972 Precision – I’ve played with known and unknown bands for 40 years and more. Looking back they were all about the blues – the musical and mental affliction we all suffer from/are attracted to.

A while ago I started writing songs for myself to perform when I could. Then Holly started singing with me – that’s what you’re going to hear on Saturday night in Rakino – with some of the best musicians from Sth of the Bombay Hills.
