Tomorrow People take ‘BBQ reggae’ on road

TOMORROW PEOPLE TAKE BBQ REGGAE ON THE ROAD FOR 10-DATE TOUR

Aotearoa’s favourite ‘BBQ reggae’ band Tomorrow People are hitting the road in celebration of their #1 album BBQ REGGAE.

The Wellington-based collective achieved the seemingly impossible earlier this year, knocking international superstar Ed Sheeran off the top of the charts, when their latest EP BBQ REGGAE debuted at #1 in the Official NZ Music Charts.

Now to mark the momentous milestone, Tomorrow People have announced a 10-date nationwide tour, which kicks off in Whangarei at Tiki Tavern on Friday, May 11and ends in Gisborne at the Cossie Club on Saturday, June 6.

Presented by Pato Entertainment and Flava, the extensive tour takes in all corners of the North Island, including Ruakaka, Whakatane, Turangi and Rotorua, and is a way for Tomorrow People to say thanks to their loyal fanbase and the new fans they’ve won over with their unique style of sunshine reggae.

They will be adding South Island dates and further North Island dates later in the year. See below for current list of dates and venues.

Tomorrow People - Marcus Abraham, Ken Saupese, Hamo Dell, Avina Kelekolio, Duane Te Whetu, Dan Sugrue and Tana Tupai - are one of the country’s most-loved reggae bands, with a string of popular releases to their name, including ‘Souljah Feeling’, ‘Feel Alright’ and ‘Take It Away’.

They made headlines when their EP BBQ REGGAE toppled Ed Sheeran from the charts and drew praise for releasing single ‘Don’t Wanna Fight It’ in three languages - English, Te Reo and Samoan, as a mark of respect to the band members’ heritage and the diversity of their audience.

The band performed a tri-lingual mash-up of the track that went viral on their Facebook page HERE

Tomorrow People have established themselves as one of New Zealand’s most popular live acts, performing this summer at some of the country’s biggest festivals, from One Love to Homegrown.
They’ve also taken their music to the world, with tours across Australia, Tahiti, Rarotonga, Fiji, and Samoa.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
