With sheer guitar-driven ecstasy loaded with passion and raunch, Kevin Borich will take you on a musical epic from the deepest blues to the potent force that made him one of our hottest rockers and a phenomenal axeman.

The Kevin Borich Express thrills blues enthusiasts and wins new music fans at every gig! Their show delivers a set of laid back acoustic blues with Kev’s beautiful 1930s National Steel Guitar.

Over the years, Kevin has teamed up with the ‘cream of the crop’ of Australian musicians.
