Two spot­light acts for birth­day month


Sharon McIn­tyre, Ali Blue (Watkins) and Denise Rod­dis aka Short N Sweet and The Hantlers are com­ing to en­ter­tain you at Mor­rinsville Coun­try Mu­sic Club’s Novem­ber Club night, this Fri­day.

As mem­bers of the Mor­rinsville Coun­try Mu­sic Club, the trio ‘ Short N Sweet’ was formed in the early 1990s.

They en­joyed play­ing around with har­monies and blend­ing their voices which was to be the be­gin­ning of many years of suc­cess in the Coun­try Mu­sic Award scene from Whangarei to Gis­borne.

They gained en­try to per­form at the New Zealand En­ter­tainer of the Year fi­nals three times.

When they de­cided to go their own way in the mu­sic world, Ali did very well as a soloist.

Sis­ters Denise Rod­dis and Sharon McIn­tyre as a duo un­der their maiden name, The Reidy Sis­ters were reg­u­lar back­ing singers at the Mor­rinsville Spec­tac­u­lar, Kiwi Pro Am and En­ter­tainer of the Year. Sharon con­tin­ues to be a val­ued mem­ber of the Mor­rinsville Coun­try mu­sic club, as a bass player, vo­cal backer and mem­ber of the com­mit­tee.

Denise and Sharon have made many life­long friends through their mu­sic over the years, and the club is de­lighted that they are com­ing to share their tal­ents once again for the 41st year as the Mor­rinsville Coun­try Mu­sic Club.

The Hantlers, Renny & Jenny are life mem­bers of the Mor­rinsville Coun­try Mu­sic Club. Renny was raised in Hawkes Bay and Jenny in Can­ter­bury, so theirs is a com­bi­na­tion of both North and South tal­ent.

They met through coun­try mu­sic, mar­ried and lived in Napier be­fore mov­ing to Christchurch in the early 1980s. Renny was a mem­ber of the well known Laredo Show­band tour­ing with Patsy Rig­gir, pro­vid­ing back­ing at Gold Gui­tar Awards as well as play­ing at many clubs around the area.

In 1994 they moved to Hamil­ton with their three chil­dren and shortly af­ter­wards they joined the Mor­rinsville Coun­try Mu­sic Club.

They have per­formed at the Pai­hia Coun­try Rock Fes­ti­val for sev­eral years and, af­ter much en­cour­age­ment, have re­leased their own fam­ily CD. It dis­plays the tal­ents of them all col­lec­tively and as in­di­vid­u­als.

Renny and Jenny’s per­for­mance will leave you want­ing to hear more.
