The Tribune (NZ) - - WELCOME -

Kiwi mu­sic icon Suzanne Lynch, is the (ahem) lynch-pin of Oper­atu­nity’s lat­est Day­time Con­cert. Quintessen­tially Kiwi is a whirl­wind tour through the great New Zealand songbook – the mem­o­rable New Zealand mu­sic we all grew up with, live!

At four­teen years old, as half of the duo The Chicks with her sis­ter, Suzanne had her first al­bum re­leased and the duo spent the next five years per­form­ing reg­u­larly on the New Zealand tele­vi­sion mu­sic pro­gramme C’Mon. In 1970, Suzanne be­came a solo per­former, was a res­i­dent per­former on Hap­pen Inn and was voted NZ En­ter­tainer of the Year. In 1972 she won a Lox­ene Golden Disc Award.

For Quintessen­tially Kiwi, Suzanne is joined by ‘‘The 3 Kiwi Blokes’’ – ex­pat Palmy per­son Karl Perigo, Robert Enari and Alex Mil­li­gan – and a live band, as they pay tribute to some of New Zealand’s most trea­sured en­ter­tain­ers – Ray Columbus, the Topp Twins, Maria Dal­las, John Rowles, Billy T. James, Fred Dagg, and Peter Posa among them.

Th­e­ses are songs that have earned their own spe­cial place in New Zealand his­tory and in our hearts. From 1949’s Blue Smoke to Sir Howard Mor­ri­son, here are the hits along with the ban­ter.

Quintessen­tially Kiwi is at 11am next Wed­nes­day May 11, at Life Church, 590 Feather­ston St, and in­cludes a light lunch af­ter­wards where au­di­ence mem­bers will have a chance to chat with the artists. Call toll free 0508 266 237 to book, or on­line at day­timecon­certs.co.nz
