South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Box Juice is tak­ing their sound to the Rugby World Cup.

The reg­gae band, which in­cludes mem­bers from Toko­roa, has lined up more than 20 gigs to showcase their sound to na­tional and in­ter­na­tional at­ten­dees.

Box Juice man­ager Ray Bishop said the group would en­ter­tain thou­sands of ex­cited fans walk­ing into Eden Park in Auck­land. ‘‘We put for­ward an en­ter­tain­ment con­cept fea­tur­ing the six mem­bers of Box Juice wear­ing full length tuxe­dos, top hats and half fa­cial moko and singing a spe­cial se­lec­tion of Ki­wiana songs as well as leg­endary reg­gae clas­sics,’’ he said.

The band is made up of six of New Zealand’s finest reg­gae artists.

‘‘ There is an an­tic­i­pated crowd of twenty thou­sand train com­muters wait­ing to use the Auck­land train sys­tem and we will be rock­ing songs from our three al­bums as well as more clas­sic reg­gae tracks,’’ Bishop said.

Bishop also said Box Juice would per­form for two hours as pre-match en­ter­tain­ment and 90 min­utes af­ter­wards.

‘‘This is a mas­sive op­por­tu­nity and we are very thank­ful and ap­pre­cia­tive.’’

AMPED: Box Juice will play more than 20 gigs dur­ing the Rugby World Cup.
