Sol3 Mio stand and deliver

It was the last chance to be wooed for a while too, with baritone Moses MacKay announcing a two-year hiatus while the trio go sing their separate ways.
The acoustics were another surprise. Despite a speaker buzz , the sound quality in the big shed was excellent, but there were 4000 pairs of absorbent ears to mop up any unwanted resonance.
The first 50 minutes with the more emotionally satisfying stuff, passed all too quickly, though that was something only realised during the musical variety second half. While the musical clowning was clever, with the boys showing their versatility on the baby grand, guitar, double bass and ukulele, it did become ever so slightly silly, detracting from the calibre of those wonderful voices.
A touching moment was the tribute to fathers ‘‘who forced us to sing’’, part of a supercharged night that ended in several standing ovations.
Musical merrymakers Sol3 Mio from left Moses Mackay, and brothers Pene Pati and Amitai Pati captivated an audience of 4000 on Friday night.
