Party time at Rangi­houa

Waiheke Marketplace - - Front Page - ROSE DAVIS

Five mem­bers of Waiheke band Ra­dio Re­belde will leave the is­land af­ter a mu­sic fes­ti­val on March 3.

Drum­mer and vo­cal­ist Raul Sar­rot said the event would be the last chance to see the 12-strong Latin ska band in its cur­rent form.

The Ra­dio Re­belde and Friends Sum­mer Party from 3.15pm to 8.45pm at Rangi­houa Es­tate will fea­ture four Waiheke bands and DJS and two main­land acts.

Waiheke singer and songwriter Nikki Ngatai will layer sounds with a loop pedal and sing with guest mu­si­cians.

Is­land DJ Chikaa Li­cor­ica will of­fer trop­i­cal beats and lo­cal mu­si­cian Aaron Car­pen­ter will per­form with Dave Al­ley and Kiri Eri­wata.

From fur­ther afield, singer and multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist Leighton Fair­lie will per­form and DJ Mu­fasa will close the night with a bang.

Sar­rot said Ra­dio Re­belde mem­bers Ash­ley Blair, Greg Cos­sar, Magico, Juan Silva and Syl­vain La­boriere are leav­ing the is­land, but the heart of the band will con­tinue beat­ing.

The band has been through many in­car­na­tions over the past nine years and fans have hailed each line-up as the best ever, he said.

‘‘The new band mem­bers bring new en­ergy and it shapes what we do - it’s a nice evo­lu­tion and very pos­i­tive cre­atively,’’ Sar­rot said.

Sev­eral Ra­dio Re­belde shows have sold out on the is­land re­cently, so Rangi­houa Es­tate was cho­sen as a large, out­door venue.

Tick­ets are $30 from www.un­der­ther­adar.co.nz or $35 at the door.
