Plaza con­ceert

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT - By PET­RICE TARRANT

Coun­try bands and mu­si­cians from all over the Waikato will flock to the Pu­taruru Plaza for this year’s South Waikato Coun­try Mu­sic con­cert.

The an­nual fundraiser will help put money in the pock­ets of the Phoenix Va­ri­ety Coun­try Mu­sic Club for the 2015 Clas­sic Gold Awards.

South Waikato com­mit­tee mem­ber Bill Turner said the free con­cert has been a hit ev­ery year, with more than $1000 raised for the vol­un­teer fire brigade in 2013.

The re­cip­i­ent of this year’s pro­ceeds was cho­sen be­cause of its on­go­ing com­mit­ment to the club, he said.

Bands have been in­vited to the walk-up con­cert from most coun­try mu­sic clubs in the Waikato re­gion. At the event, to be held on Fe­bru­ary 2, af­ter­noon tea will be free.
