This year’s event fea­tures Kiwi songstress Jamie McDell along with her sis­ter Tess as Dunes, jazz and blues band Kokomo, the Tim Arm­strong Bea­tles Trib­ute band and lo­cal gui­tar wizard Bryan Rawiri.

Ro­tary Mata­mata di­rec­tor Lynette Stan­ley said ticket sales to date for this year’s event had been slower than the club hoped they would be.

‘‘We are re­ally hop­ing that peo­ple are leav­ing it un­til the last few days to pur­chase tick­ets for the con­cert be­cause we are still a way off reach­ing our tar­get num­bers,’’ Stan­ley said.

‘‘This is a lo­cal fundrais­ing event with pro­ceeds go­ing to Starfish So­cial Ser­vices, Pohlen Hos­pi­tal and other Ro­tary Mata­mata projects so we hope that mem­bers of our Mata­mata com­mu­nity will get in be­hind us.’’

Stan­ley said the acts would ap­peal to a wide range of mu­si­cal tastes and peo­ple would cer­tainly en­joy the beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings for the show.

‘‘It will be a won­der­ful af­ter­noon of en­ter­tain­ment,’’ she said. ‘‘We would en­cour­age you to get a group of friends to­gether.’’ Tick­ets cost $45 each. In the event of bad weather forc­ing a can­cel­la­tion, please check out the Ro­tary Mata­mata Face­book page for can­cel­la­tion de­tails.

The event, at 162 Jon­dor Road, RD2, Mata­mata starts at 1pm on Sun­day.
