Oceania Storm brewing nicely
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.
