Shad­ows trib­ute com­ing

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Two for­mer Mata­mata lads have picked up their gui­tars for the first time in 45 years.

Broth­ers Ron and John Daw­son grew up in Mata­mata in the 1960s, at­tend­ing Mata­mata Col­lege.

Both played in lo­cal rock and roll bands.

The broth­ers were huge fans of British pop group The Shad­ows and made plans to start a trib­ute band, which never even­tu­ated.

That is, un­til they were at a re­cent fam­ily func­tion, when they de­cided to give it an­other shot.

They bought gui­tars and am­pli­fiers, found a drum­mer and a bass player and formed band, Cast­ing Shad­ows.

The band will be per­form­ing at the Bureta Park Mo­tor Inn in Tau­ranga on Satur­day, Au­gust 11, and en­cour­age fans of The Shad­ows to go along.

Jam­ming again: Ron and John Daw­son per­form as Cast­ing Shad­ows.
