SunLive Competition

Warm reggae beats at Totara St

Escape the winter’s gloom and bask in the warmth of reggae beats and beautiful harmonies when Tomorrow People hit Mount Maunganui next week.

After a busy schedule of touring the Pacific Islands and Australia this year, the seven-piece Wellington band is back home soil and bringing the sunshine to Totara Street on Saturday, July 9.

Founded in 2010, Tomorrow People has captured the imaginations of people all around the world with their self-described ‘sunshine reggae’ and a sound built on strong vocals, infectious hooks, aggressive ragga raps and feel good rhythms.

Along with three albums, two of which reached #1 on the official NZ music charts, they’ve won a slew of awards including the Waiata Music Award for ‘Best Roots Reggae Album’ as well as played New Zealand’s biggest festivals like One Love,  Rhythm n Vines, and Raggamuffin to name a few.

Tomorrow People is also one of six Kiwi acts who are joining forces on July 17 to help raise funds for South Auckland’s Te Puea Marae which has opened its doors to feed and house families suffering serious hardship.

SunLive has one double passes to give away to one lucky reader who can tell us how many musicians make up Tomorrow People? 

All entries must be received by 12pm on Friday, July 8.

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
