An entertainment professional I have returned to the South Island music scene after a 5 year stint in the North Island.
During my previous musical career in Christchurch which started as a regular entertainer on the Ballins circuit, I was resident entertainer at the Gainsborough Motor Lodge, Ye Olde Cask & Cleaver, Phoenix Tavern, Mongolian Marquee and still managed excursions into Dunedin, Blenheim, the West Coast, Wellington and Invercargill to entertain.
In the early 80’s I promoted several big scale talent shows for Lion Breweries and Ballins Breweries and produced the 1992 Christchurch Entertainer of the Year Awards at the Cashmere Club. Today several of the entrants for those shows are singing solo or in groups around town.
As a Show Producer I provided big show events for the Woolston, Hoon Hay, Riccarton, Kaiapoi, Richmond and Musicians Clubs also the Theatre Royal, Hurunui and Cust Hotels.
On Tuesday 11 & Saturday 15 May I’m teaming up with Shane Ngaia & Mita Edwards to perform on the ROCKONZ series of shows at the Cashmere Club. The next day Sunday 16 May I am co-producing and performing on “The Mita Edwards Entertainment Extravaganza” celebrating NZ Music Month at the Woolston Club.
Although I have composed several originals of my own, the music I play in the public forum is mainly from the great recording artists of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s & 80’s. Should the occasion require it I can sing the much earlier dated music or front up with some of the later songs. If a special song is required for a particular function I will feature it in my performance on the night.
The equipment I use is brand new and features modern technology which makes it capable of being set up for large venue functions, medium sized venues and house parties.
This all culminates to me being a must to book for your next function.
