The Legacy Band

Legacy is a 3-piece band from Whangarei that plays a huge mixture of Blues, Soul, R & B and Funk. Introducing Shilo Barbarich, a phenomenal guitar player-singer-song writer who ignites this power-trio. His influences range from Stevie Ray Vaughn, Joe Bonamassa, Dereck Trucks, John Mayer, William Bell; just to name but a few. Featuring on Bass guitar, we have Paul Barbarich who is a true musician that knows his craft and how to hold down a solid groove. Henry Beattie, a “long-time friend” of the Bay of Islands Jazz & Blues Festival is on drums and vocals. Over the years, Henry has featured with Roy Phillips, Bob Denham, Mike Netmen, Fifth Ave, Bunny Walters and more recently with Auckland based Band-Juice on the Loose.
Legacy takes their music seriously – They have recently played at the Frings-Festival of Blues where they played with the likes of 2 K, Tony Painting and the Power and Billy T.K. Junior and the Groove Shakers. This year they also performed at the 2016 Ngapuhi Festival under “Shilo-B and Ta Moko” where they helped release Shilo’s original songs live to Northland. Legacy’s goal is to provide you with pure entertainment that won't be forgotten, and their style of Blues will have you dancing all night long!
