Soul sounds re­turn to Toko­roa

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Maori Ne­sian are bring­ing their sound back to Toko­roa when they per­form at the Toko­roa Cos­mopoli­tan Club on De­cem­ber 2.

The band plays a soul­ful blend of reg­gae orig­i­nals and cov­ers by bands and mu­si­cians such as House of Shem, Katchafire and Bob Mar­ley.

The group came to­gether af­ter Dez Brown left pop­u­lar reg­gae band 1814.

Brown, Vin­cent Tate and other mem­bers of the band have played in var­i­ous line­ups for more than 20 years.

Now the band com­prises Brown, Tate, Ani Tate on ukulele and vo­cals, Ngaps and Ramika Wha­rau and El­lis Brown. The group of tal­ented mu­si­cians per­form all those good feel­ing sounds, from tra­di­tional reg­gae to rhythm and blues, soul and rock.

As well as per­form­ing cov­ers from 1814 and Ardi­jah, the group will show­case orig­i­nal mu­sic.

The South Waikato News has a $40 meal voucher to the club’s restau­rant Frangi­pani’s to give away.

Sim­ply tell us when the group will per­form along with your name and con­tact de­tails to go into the draw.

You can ei­ther sub­mit your en­try on the back of an en­ve­lope or email swaikato.editor@

FEEL­ING GOOD: Maori Ne­sian are back and will per­form at Toko­roa Cos­mopoli­tan Club next month.
