Reg­gae hol­i­day

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Clas­sic Kiwi reg­gae band 1814 will be head­lin­ing this year’s Wai­tangi Day fes­ti­val in Taupo.

The band will per­form at Wai­tangi- Taupo Moana 2014 on Fe­bru­ary 6 at Ton­gariro Do­main.

The band be­gan as a three-piece in 2004, with a fa­ther and his two sons cov­er­ing bass, drums, gui­tar and vo­cals. It has since ex­panded to in­clude another five peo­ple, sax­o­phone and key­boards.

Build­ing on the suc­cess of the in­au­gu­ral fes­ti­val last year, Wai­tangi-Taupo Moana 2014 is a celebration of the com­mu­nity and will fea­ture plenty of Ki­wiana, cul­tural and mu­si­cal acts.

Last year a large con­tin­gent from Man­gakino made use of free buses, a ser­vice which will be avail­able again this year. But num­bers are lim­ited and those in­ter­ested must reg­is­ter at the Man­gakino Taupo Dis­trict Coun­cil of­fices.
