Hello Sailor back at the beginning
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.’’
