Would you like to hear Jimi Hendrix covering Nirvana at Elton John’s 27th Birthday Party? The Aleister James Incident might be the next best thing.

Led by one of the most exciting young guitarists to come out of New Zealand in recent years, The Aleister James Incident is a classic guitar/bass/drums combo which pushes the limits of what the format is capable of. Many of the tunes are originals, and the rest are drawn from the far flung corners of Aleister James’ musical influences which include blues, rock and experimental jazz. Always intent on capturing the sprit of the music, not churning out note for note renditions, the Incident’s performances are replete with improvisation and joy.
