Calling 80s fans Wairarapa Wide!

Book your tickets; make your reservations as you don’t want to miss out on the 80s coming to the Wairarapa. This show is blowing away 80s fans New Zealand wide.

The Carterton Automatic 80s Party

This is a monster 80s party & live music concert featuring ‘AutoMatic 80s’ with special guest Boh Runga plus DJ ’59 to 1’ and Doorboy Jonny.

Located in Carterton at the state of the art, Carterton Events Centre. This is the perfect destination for a nostalgic weekend getaway and night you will not forget.

The Automatic 80s Show features the very best of early to mid-Eighties New Romantic and new wave hits, performed live, loud and pumping. The hundreds of hours of pre-production, musicianship and attention to vocal detail create an authentic live Eighties Music experience that leaves enthralled audiences exhausted and voiceless from dancing and singing. Be propelled back to the age of Synthplicity.

If you love the music of bands such as Frankie Goes to Hollywood, OMD, Simple Minds, Erasure, Dead or alive, Style Council, Soft Cell, Eurythmics, Berlin, Madness, Aha, Duran & many more! Then you don’t want to miss this event.

Formally known in Christchurch as Amez Amez in the 1980s, Automatic 80s is the rebirth of a world class group of musicians featuring the astonishing sound alike vocals and high energy stage antics of front man Justin Maclaren, backed up by the pitch perfect Pearl Runga (sister to Boh & Bic), drummer and programmer Andrew Maclaren (Stellar), guitarists Andrew Thorne with bassist Brett Wells/ Vocalist. The band will be joined by Boh Runga for a special guest performance for the Carterton Show.
