Media release – for immediate use


Amazing line up set to entertain at Rivercity Caboodle
Sal Valentine and the Babyshakes headlining at Rivercity Caboodle 2014


In January 2012 Mainstreet Wanganui delivered the inaugural Rivercity Caboodle. The event was such a hit with visitors and locals alike that they immediately began planning the next one. Now in its third year Mainstreet has once again secured a top New Zealand act to grace their outdoor stage on Victoria Avenue. This year it is Auckland ten piece ‘Sal Valentine and the Baby Shakes.’
Fresh from releasing their debut album followed by a nation-wide album release tour Sal Valentine will bring his band ‘The Babyshakes’ along with their unique blend of big-band horns toting heavy licks that would be at home in the roaring 20s, and a rhythm section that knows what to play when Sal says go, pierced by fair vocalists Chelsea Prastiti and Rebecca Mason-Melrose to Whanganui for the first time.

As if the excitement of this big band weren’t enough they will be preceded by the world’s first and only all-female Johnny Cash tribute band ‘The Johnnys.’ Just back from touring New Zealand with the Topp Twins and playing the Johnny Cash Festival in California. They will be travelling from the South Island to join in the nostalgic fun.

Mainstreet Wanganui Marketing Manager Elise Goodge says, “these acts are consummate performers unique in their field and world class, we are thrilled we have secured them for the Caboodle and that all of Whanganui’s residents can see them for free, we know they will appeal to fans of great music no matter what their age.”


Mainstreet are also reprising some of the most popular aspects of the previous two Caboodle’s this year including an outdoor movie screening of ‘His Girl Friday’ starring Cary Grant at 9.30pm, a selection of visiting market stalls and vintage car rides.


With such fantastic out of town acts coupled with the best local talent on show Whanganui will once again be the place to be this Wellington Anniversary Weekend.
