The Te Puke Country Music Club refuses to be silenced after having their sound equipment stolen.
Their sound gear was locked in the club's trailer and the trailer was locked in a secure garage in a location not many would have known about, a post on their Facebook page says.
Both the shed and the trailer have been broken in to and the trailer has been completely emptied.
“This is very upsetting for our non-profit organisation and we would really like our stuff back,” the post says.
The replacement value of the equipment is close to $20,000 and it includes, a new pa system, a drum kit, guitar amps, speakers, a mixer, mics and stands.
They are pleading for the any information to locate the gear or catch the culprits.
If you have any information contact the Te Puke Police or club patron Geoff Mutton on 07 573 7917.
