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.
