The Mount Maunganui Hot Pools have the perfect way to unwind after an active day playing in the ocean and exploring the bush and hills around the Bay of Plenty.
Every Sunday evening, the only hot ocean water complex in the world, located at the base of the majestic Mauao provides a relaxing environment while playing host to live musicians with the popular 'Soak 'N Sound' events.
Melissa Cox will be performing this evening, Sunday December 27. Described as Celtic and world-infused folk rock, Melissa is a looping artist similar to Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Sinead O'Connor, The Cranberries and Loreena McKennitt.
Melissa has released a new album, her eleventh, this month titled ‘Maiden. Mother. Broken.’
Sing Out Magazine’s states “...a sophisticated, highly arranged approach to roots music...Cox sounds like a cross between Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick and Loreena McKennitt."
