Hello Sailor back at the be­gin­ning

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Hello Sailor is com­ing to Toko­roa in Novem­ber and ev­ery­one is in­vited to the party.

The New Zealand band, orig­i­nally formed in 1975, is fa­mous for its dis­tinc­tive South Pa­cific rock ’n’ roll sound.

Hello Sailor’s self-ti­tled de­but al­bum was the first New Zealand made record to achieve gold sta­tus and the band’s de­but per­for­mance was right here in Toko­roa at the Trees Tav­ern in 1975.

They will re­turn to Toko­roa to per­form at a con­cert on Satur­day, Novem­ber 8 at the South Waikato Sport and Events Cen­tre, after the third an­nual Tani­wha event.

‘‘The suc­cess of the Tani­wha, one of the dis­trict’s premier sport­ing events, pro­vides coun­cil with an op­por­tu­nity to dove-tail an added-value event for our com­mu­nity and for those vis­it­ing,’’ coun­cil com­mu­nity group man­ager Amanda Hema said.

Many peo­ple will recog­nise the smash hit Gut­ter Black, the ti­tle mu­sic for Out­ra­geous For­tune. ‘‘The Tani­wha event and the throngs of peo­ple who visit our dis­trict as a re­sult has pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for coun­cil to put both fund­ing and ef­fort into a sup­port­ing event,’’ Hema said. ‘‘If you haven’t done the Tani­wha yet, en­ter this year.’’
