We’re famous for musicians of both yesteryear and today, along with our unique environment inspiring both musicians and artist.
Despite all this, it’s relatively surprising that the live music scene isn’t exactly booming around town. Thankfully, we have the Rogue Stage, who, bucking the trend, are frequently bringing incredible act after incredible act to Rotorua to play in unique venues and giving local musicians a chance to perform in front of others. I was lucky enough to see their last show at the Princess Gate Hotel, where Hamilton folk duo Looking for Alaska supported the captivating Tiny Ruins. The show ran smoothly and it had the kind of atmosphere where everyone was welcome and encompassed in the warm glow which can only be experienced when music is being created in front of you.
Thanks to Karin Vincent and the Rogue stage team for putting together a great show. I would encourage everyone to look up the Rogue stage and to make a point of heading along to one of their shows, to not only support more great music in our city, but for a great night out.
