NZ Music Month Rotorua is concluding with live music on the 27th of May with the final and last show at Sir Howard Morrison Performance Art Centre. The event will take place in the smaller Concert Chamber and is sponsored by The Rogue Stage, Rotorua Lakes Council and Rotorua Energy Charitable Trust.
There is two parts to the event – an early concert from 6pm to 7.30pm open to all public and free of charge and then a second concert, which is ticketed and will start at 8pm.
The first concert will host local bands from Rotorua – The Intricate Melody, Steamrolller and John Hamilton Trio. It is a full band line-up with a full sound. Invitation is open to all to come and have a look and a listen.
The later concert will host local and guest artists – Lloyd Akroyd (local), False Heights (local), Waiariki Students, Rio Hemopo (guest), Ed Zuccollo (guest) and Justin Firefly (guest).
150 tickets will go on sale and can be bought online from Ticketmaster.co.nz, starting next week. Flava Radio is running the promotion for the event. Tune in and listen for their daily promotion and ways to enter for ticket give-aways.
Dave Alley is a NZ fingerstyle guitarist, percussionist, writer, composer and singer. A genre defying artist whose mostly acoustic guitar based music stems from roots, world, blues, rock, reggae, funk, folk and south pacific styles.
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience great live original music at the fine bistro of Stacey and Sheldon, the Sequoia Eatery Rotorua. You can order tapas beforehand and book a table, ready to enjoy the live music concert starting from 8pm.
Tickets are sold here on this website and also at the venue. They are $10 each.
