ROTORUA 15.01.13: Rotorua’s popular ‘Music in the Band Rotunda’ season returns to Government Gardens next month, kicking off with two local bands, Finely Tuned and Off Broadway.

“This year’s event is already proving to be quite popular, with many people inquiring about the new programme.

“I encourage local families to pack a picnic and come along to enjoy some great local music in a wonderful setting.”

Sunday events at the band Rotunda will feature jazz, blues, orchestral, brass and choral work with performances starting at 1pm and finishing around 2.30pm.

The line-up for the seven weeks of ‘Music in the Band Rotunda’ is as follows:
