The DeSotos are a four-piece band based in Auckland, New Zealand

The DeSotos have cemented their place as New Zealand's leading exponents of the Americana / Country Blues genres following the release of two albums that have been universally embraced by the critics.

2008's Cross Your Heart was voted Manu Taylor's no 1 New Zealand album of the year, and the 2011's Your Highway For Tonight album received glowing 4 star reviews nationally.

Both albums have supplied the theme and continuity music to the TVNZ 'South' and 'North' series presented by Marcus Lush.

The live show steps it up a notch further - 4 part harmonies, rootsy Gretsch guitar, Hammond organ with Leslie, and a rock solid rhythm section make for a tight and dynamic live sound that is exciting and unique.

The DeSotos are Paul Gurney - lead vocals, guitars, Stuart McIntyre - bass, vocals, Ron Stevens - Hammond, keyboards, vocals, Michael Burrows - drums, vocals.
