Eastern Courier - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - LIU CHEN

Eight skilled mu­si­cians are band­ing to­gether to present a unique con­cert to East Auck­lan­ders this Satur­day night.

Uxbridge Arts and Cul­ture in How­ick holds its first Show­case Evening, pro­vid­ing a plat­form for lo­cal per­form­ers to pa­rade their tal­ents.

Peo­ple will be able to en­joy a broad gen­res of mu­sic, in­clud­ing folk, con­tem­po­rary, pop and even some coun­try-rock in­fu­sion.

‘‘There are not many op­por­tu­ni­ties for artists that are try­ing to get their foot­ing in the mu­sic industry to per­form to a live au­di­ence, and we wanted to give them that op­por­tu­nity,’’ Uxbridge’s Holly Muller says.

‘‘These per­form­ers are se­ri­ously tal­ented and de­serve to be able to take the stage and bring their tal­ent to the com­mu­nity.’’

Eastern Beach res­i­dent Sara Frigell, a singer-song­writer orig­i­nally from Swe­den, feels ex­cited about the show.

She’ll sing two of her own songs while play­ing gui­tar.

‘‘It’s go­ing to be in­spir­ing and fun. What a great op­por­tu­nity for us per­form­ers. The au­di­ence will have a good evening.’’

Rob Sadd , of Kauka­pakapa, is go­ing to play his ‘‘hy­brid of coun­try and South­ern hard rock’’.

‘‘I’m happy to be a part of it, per­form­ing to a new au­di­ence.’’

Show­case Evening is at Uxbridge The­atre, How­ick, on Septem­ber 23, 8pm. Phone 09 535 6467 for tickets.
