Wow guys and girls, its been a while but great to be back. Promise I wont be missing anymore.

Soooo.....Boxstock is back on for 2019 folks. The event will be hosted by the Auckland Blues Music club and will be on in June / July. Just sorting a date and a venue and we are rolling.

2019 will be the year for the very first NZ Boxstock and I am planning to take it around the country as well.

For those of you that do the Facebook thing, I will be setting up a NZ CBG Facebook Group which will have all the details as well as this group.

Thats that for now folks, stay tuned and keep twanging
