Warratahs to play at Summer Sounds

Warratahs to play at Summer Sounds

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

The stage by the Oriental Garden in King Edward Park will once again come to life on Sunday 21 January as part of Summer Sounds in the Park.

After the last two year’s successful events, the day will include two bands so there is bound to be something that suits everyone’s tastes.

Entertainment will start at 4.30pm featuring Taranaki band The Stove. The Stove , a true Taranaki band , were born of a desire to document local history stoked with five-part harmonies that crackle and burn on a fuel of acoustic guitars and light percussion , these down-home tales come wrapped in amber and black . The sound can be described as a cross between Crosby , Stills , Nash & Young and The Beatles .

Following the Stoves the feature band The Warratahs will perform. Their live shows still have the fire that has always been - they play the material from their albums, some of Barry Saunders’ solo work, and they never go on the road without something new. This is a big part of what has kept The Warratahs’ flame burning.


South Taranaki District Council events co-ordinator Jody Bloor says she looks forward to seeing lots of people enjoying the evening’s free entertainment.

“We hope families take the opportunity to have a relaxing evening, taking in the music and the stunning scenery,” says Jody. “Make a night of it and bring along a picnic, or make use of the Riversong Gypsy Café selling some savoury delights for dinner and your favourite doughnuts and cakes will also be there made by Bushel & Peck – perfect for dessert!”

This event is proudly brought to you by South Taranaki District Council and supported by TSB Community Trust in association with More FM.
