As well as his usual solo guitar virtuosity, his new ensemble Rhythm Express, featuring percussion, ukulele/charango, guitar and double bass, will take you on a roots ’n’ rhythm journey by injecting world sounds and a lot of himself into some of the renowned songs by composers as diverse as Sting, U2, Duke Ellington, Peter Gabriel, Muse, Robert Palmer, Deep Purple and of course Bruce Mathiske.

Released through MGM, his album Guitar-Uoso is available in stores now and every track of the CD will be performed at the show. Expect an entertaining night of stringed excellence with infectious rhythms from far-flung corners of his guitar and beyond.

See Bruce at the Gold Coast Arts Centre tonight
