SunLive Competition

Reggae to rule Totara St next Friday

Expect a reggae-fuelled night next Friday, May 20, at the Totara St venue at Mount Maunganui Performing Arts Centre.

Totara St – dubbed as “the Bay’s newest hot spot for live entertainment” – is hosting a collection of Kiwi reggae artists and Raglan-based group Cornerstone Roots is headlining the night.

The band has been known to “pay respect to the colossal world of Jamaican reggae, while confidently bringing their own influences and uplifting messages to the mix”.

Joining them are Regan Perry and the Evolutionaries. Regan is a critically-acclaimed Kiwi-born and raised singer-songwriter.

He’s off touring the States in October, so catch him while you can jamming with The Evolutionaries for a mix of “huge grooves, evolving lyrics and beans and the catchiest choruses known to man”.

Reiki Ruawai and son of the Cornerstone Root’s frontman Brian Ruawai, is joining the line-up with his very own acoustic set.

If you fancy enjoying original Kiwi reggae music, grab tickets for $15 on Eventfinda or $20 on the door.

The Weekend Sun has two double passes to give away to one lucky reader who can tell us where is Regan Perry off to in October this year?

Entries must be received by Wednesday, May 18.

Opinion Poll

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
