UCOL musicians to rock the Regent

A tin of baked beans is a small price to pay to see the musical stars of tomorrow at the Rhythm and Turbines concert on Saturday 17 November.

UCOL’s Certificate in Contemporary Music Performance students will be unleashed on the Regent on Broadway stage to present their end of year showcase and a donation of a can of food for the Palmerston North Foodbank is the entry fee.

Among influences such as Kimbra, Neil Young, Bob Marley, Elvis, Queen, Michael Jackson, The Who and The Black Keys, the two hour musical extravaganza is open to the general public.

UCOL Contemporary Music Programme Leader and Lecturer Kane Parsons says, “This event is very focused on original music, and gives students the opportunity to perform their songs in one of New Zealand’s most beautiful venues.”

There will be CDs for sale on the night that feature a selection of the student's original music.

The performances at the showcase will be based on a range of musical genres the budding musicians have studied during the year including rock, pop, blues, soul and country.

“Being taught and mentored by professional musicians such as; Warren Maxwell (Fat Freddy’s Drop), Steve Smith (Journey),Harry Lyon (Hello Sailor) and legendary jazz artist Kurt Elling, the students have experienced huge growth and confidence in their skills this year,” says Kane.

When asked, the musicians said they were keen to give back to the community that had put so much into supporting local music, and were especially interested in engaging their young audience. "In ten or so years they could be the people listening to the music we make" quips one younger guitarist.

UCOL’s Certificate in Contemporary Music Performance is a one year full-time programme offered at the Palmerston North, Whanganui and Wairarapa campuses.

What: Rhythm and Turbines showcase concert.
When: Saturday 17 November at 8.00pm.
Where: Regent on Broadway, Palmerston North.
Tickets: Exchange a can of food for a ticket at the Regent on Broadway or UCOL's Information Office.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
