The Just John Show is Nelson's All Acoustic Rock, One-man-bandy-ness at its finest! Spitting out classic after classic from Ben Harper to Metallica, Johnny Cash to Taylor Swift the classics keep comin atcha like a freight train!
John Hendry fronts the band, chunking away on an acoustic guitar, packing a voice compared to the love child of Johnny Cash, Eddie Veder, Robert Plant and Dave Grohl, and a healthy dose of funky, funky Bass all thrown in for good measure!
"An extremely talented Tasman man, dragging out all of your favourite tunes, as well as some exciting alternative numbers that will take you by surprise! His polished and master like skill mixed with his ability to seemlessly invoke different improvisations make his shows performances to remember!"
- Motty Malones, Motueka

"Music is a wonderful way to express yourself, to relieve unwanted stress, organise thoughts and a great way for people to find a common ground. I teach people of all ages, from different walks of life and from many different situations, from Business Professionals wanting a way to de-stress after a busy day to people wanting to extend their skills and people hoping to meet new people with a shared passion. But most of all for a love of music."
