Ocea­nia Storm brew­ing nicely

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

If their sound did not con­jure im­ages of a sul­try and fluid style, their name cer­tainly would.

The Toko­roa Cos­mopoli­tan Club will host Ocea­nia Storm on Au­gust 20 and it is ex­pected to be one of the high­lights of the en­ter­tain­ment sched­ule.

Ocea­nia Storm is a 10-piece reg­gae band, orig­i­nally formed in 2006. The band has deep re­li­gious roots with the name given by the min­is­ter of the church which most band mem­bers at­tend.

Ocea­nia refers to their ori­gin com­ing from the small Pa­cific Is­lands in the large Pa­cific Oceans and Storm which refers to the com­mon hur­ri­canes and storms in the Pa­cific Is­lands.

The band has three lead singers, who have unique vo­cal ranges and com­bine to give full har­monies.

Join­ing their line-up are pro­fes­sional mu­si­cians Richard Tali from Ardi­jah on sax­o­phone, flute and gui­tar and Lisi­ate Langi on drums from Three Houses Down. The group has also shared the stage with top New Zealand artists such as Katchafire, 1814, Stan Walker (Aus­tralia), Smash­proof, P Money/ PNC, Tiki Taane, Sweet Irie, Three Houses Down, Tahuna Breaks, Sons of Zion and Maisey Rika. The South Waikato News has two dou­ble passes to give­away, sim­ply tell us how many mem­bers make up the band along with your name and con­tact de­tails to go into the draw. Sub­mit your en­try on the back of an en­ve­lope or email swaikato.edi­tor@wrcn.co.nz.

OCEA­NIA STORM: Will play at the Toko­roa Cos­mopoli­tan Club next month.
