South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

THE Schools Out For Sum­mer tour ended on a high at the South Waikato Arts Cen­tre at The Plaza in Pu­taruru on Satur­day night.

New Zealand Mu­sic Awards best male solo win­ner Dane Rum­ble rocked the house ac­com­pa­nied by groovy girl group Ivy Lies.

A crowd of 450 ea­gerly waited while the re­ver­ber­at­ing sounds from DJ Danny G charged the at­mos­phere.

Ivy Lies kicked off the show and sent the once seated crowd down front cen­tre stage in true mosh pit style.

The girls banged out 10 great songs, end­ing with their most pop­u­lar hit Ad­dicted, with vo­cal ac­com­pa­ni­ment from the fans.

The girls had a cam­era­man cap­tur­ing footage so if you got up and joined in you may be lucky enough to see your­self in their mu­sic video soon.

Next on stage, the man him­self – Dane Rum­ble.

Rum­ble cer­tainly did not dis- ap­point with a set of 13 tunes per­formed with his su­perb band.

This evening will not be for­got­ten in a hurry and was an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity for the young fans to ex­pe­ri­ence and en­joy the mu­sic with­out trav­el­ling to the big­ger event venues where these gigs usu­ally take place.

I’d like to thank ev­ery­one who helped make the event run smoothly, you know who you all are. Here’s to more great mu­sic in the South Waikato in 2011.
