Lloyd Spiegel brings the blues to town
Melbourne based bluesman Lloyd Spiegel is one of Australia’s leading blues exponents and highly respected guitarists.
This ‘‘veritable force to be reckoned with’’ is heading to Palmerston North, playing Cafe Royale in Square Edge next Thursday, September 10.
Renowned for his command of the guitar, powerful voice, showmanship and high energy performance, Lloyd is guaranteed to captivate any audience.
Extensive tours of Australia, especially for the 2010/11 album release of Tangled Brew, resulted in rave reviews, full houses, three Victorian blues awards and a host of new fans.

The Aussie bluesman has made frequent visits to Germany, Italy and Japan and has clocked up six coast-to-coast tours of the USA. In the States he has performed at some of the world’s best known blues venues and festivals, sharing stage time with the likes of BB King, Buddy Guy, Etta James and Ray Charles. He’s also sought after for non-blues gigs having played for concerts by Bob Dylan, Peter Frampton and Willie Nelson.
Lloyd has briefly visited New Zealand before but never played in Palmerston North, making his Manawatu debut at Square Edge next Thursday from 7-9.30pm. Tickets are $20 at the door, with a pre-show dinner option available by booking at Cafe Royale on 354 7479.
