Che Fu to perform at Cosmopolitan Club
He is one of New Zealand’s most successful recording artists and he is on his way to Tokoroa.
Che Fu will display his supergroove at the Tokoroa Cosmopolitan Club on February 11 and you have the chance to be there.
The rhythm and blues/hip hop performer was originally one part of the band Supergroove, as a solo artist he has gone on to sell thousands of albums both in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.
He began his music career at Western Springs College with a group of friends in forming the Low Down Dirty Blues Band, which went on to change their name to Supergroove. The group’s awardwinning debut album Traction went triple platinum in New Zealand.
However, it was as a solo artist that he found mammoth success.
Within weeks of leaving Supergroove, Fu was invited to record a single with DJ DLT. The result, Chains, focused on French nuclear tests in the South Pacific and was a New Zealand number one hit.
Fu released his debut solo album 2b S.pacific with BMG and at the 1997 New Zealand Music Awards received the single of the year, songwriter of the year and male vocalist of the year awards.
He then signed to Sony Music and began work for his next album, Navigator, released in 2001. He also formed an eight-piece live band called The Krates.
At the 2002 New Zealand Music Awards, Fu walked away with top male vocalist, people’s choice award, single of the year and album of the year.
However, in 2009 he became a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit.
