Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page - By KA­T­RINA TANIRAU

Ha­muera aka Humz, Len­nie Brooky and Joel Fal­lon from Da Kause had no idea that muck­ing around hav­ing a few beers and writ­ing a horse song was go­ing to take them on the jour­ney it has over the last year.

It’s been a whirl­wind year for the boys who have also writ­ten songs about cham­pion race horses and the Waikato Chiefs Su­per 15 rugby team.

On Thurs­day night Da Kause will per­form their new song writ­ten for the Skycity NZ Break­ers – Can’t Be Stopped to a sold-out au­di­ence at Vec­tor Arena in Auck­land.

‘‘We don’t want be pi­geon-holed as the band that writes songs for teams,’’ Len­nie said.

‘‘We’re just a group of guys hav­ing fun do­ing what we love.’’

Along with re­leas­ing their new tracks, the boys have also ap­peared on Maori Tele­vi­sion and IAMTV on TV2.

They have also scored plenty of air time on Ra­dio Tainui and Auck­land’s Flava FM.

‘‘We get a bit of a buzz hear­ing our­selves on the ra­dio. It’s like, that’s us. We can’t quite be­lieve it some­times,’’ Humz said.

‘‘ Usu­ally we’re just muck­ing around and the songs just come.’’

There are a num­ber of de­vel­op­ments in the pipe­line for Da Kause in­clud­ing air time on ZM which Humz said is huge for them.
