Reggae for rugby fans
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.’’
