SunLive Competition

Brilleaux's 'fabulous and groovy' gig

Get down and get loose with “the fabulous, most groovy” Brilleaux in Mount Maunganui next weekend.

Having just returned from a recent tour of the United Kingdom and Italy, the hard-hitting four-piece rhythm and blues band is bringing their high-energy act to Totara Street on Saturday, July 30.

It’ll be the band’s first show on home soil since their latest tour – and Brilleaux’s Graham Clark, Brian Franks, Bruce Roland and Ian Gilpin will show local fans why they’ve gained such a following overseas.

They’re also back with the brand new album ‘Brillcream’ – the Cream of Brilleaux which will be available for the first time in New Zealand at the show.

Opening the evening’s festivities will be Tauranga blues band Lounge Dogs, “who’re keen to deliver their own edgy version of the genre and will blow you away”.

Brilleaux, with support from Lounge Dogs, play at Totara Street in Mount Maunganui on July 30. Doors open 8pm. Tickets cost $15 and available online from Eventfinda.


The Weekend Sun has one double pass to give away to one lucky reader who can tell us where in Europe Brilleaux recently toured?

Entries must be received by Wednesday, July 27.

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
