2017 Sounds on the Sand

2017 Sounds on the Sand

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Funky tunes are returning to Opunake Beach with Sounds on the Sand.

The South Taranaki District Council is bringing The Blues Buffet to Opunake Beach on Sunday 15 January from 12.30pm.

It is one week after the beach carnival so we hope there are still plenty of campers at the campground as well as the locals from Opunake and surrounds will come on down for a great afternoon.

“Last year’s event was perfect, the sun was shining and the large crowd really enjoyed the funky tunes,” says Sounds on the Sand organiser Jody Bloor. “Hopefully the 2017 event will be the same! So come along, bring the kids and a picnic, sit back and relax, enjoy the sounds from the band ‘The Blues Buffet’ and the waves crashing on the beach.”

The Blues Buffet, from Wanganui, incorporates a mix of popular blues covers with original compositions. Band member Fred Loveridge, said The Blues Buffet are excited to be back in Opunake as they really enjoyed it when they were here in 2013, “the crowd was fantastic, it was a great afternoon of music”. The performance is perfectly timed as they have just released their third album entitled “Reality Show”.

There will also be a bouncy castle for the kids, so bring the whole family and make an afternoon of it.
