The Weekend Sun Competition


The second in the summer series of the Katikati Twilight Concerts is scheduled for January 25 at the beautiful Haiku Reserve where Paul Madsen and his team will transform themselves into The Jersey Boys.

In their tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons they will belt out tunes like Big Girls Don’t Cry, Sherry, Walk Like a Man and many more.

With vocal harmonies and melodies from falsetto to baritone this experienced group of entertainers is sure to put on an exceptional show. You can be guaranteed of an action-packed evening with lots of singing and dancing.

The opening act for this concert is 15-year-old Katikati College student Janna de Graaf.

Janna was recently placed third in the Katikati’s Got Talent competition and won the People’s Choice Award on the night. She has a bubbly, outgoing stage presence and encourages the crowd involvement. “I come from a strong vocal background and when I get the chance to sing and get opportunities like this I will take them. I love to play netball, ride horses and I like the outdoors,” says Janna.

It’s always a highlight for the concert committee to be able to showcase local talent and Janna is no exception.

Pack up your deck chairs and picnic and come along to this beautiful spot by the river for some great family entertainment.

Gates open at 5pm with the music starting at 6pm. Tickets available at the gate, from the Katikati Info Centre, by emailing: katikaticoncerts@gmail.com or by phoning: 07 549 3522.
