Album of the month - Mahinarangi Tocker


Album of the month - Mahinarangi Tocker

This month's "Real Groovy" Album of the Month is from one of the Temple's favourite performers: Hei Ha from Mahinarangi Tocker

Mahinarangi is an extraordinary talent combining prolific songwriting skills, musicianship, and has been described by Colin Hogg (Sunday Star Times) as 'a breathtaking singer'.Music in New Zealand wrote of her as 'one of our most respected songwriters and also probably one of our most unrecognised artists'.

So mosey on down to the Temple and have a listen over a drink or 6, we'll be hammering the album for the next month and loving every moment!!

If you like Hei Ha (and I'm sure you will) you can go into Real Groovy Auckland (438 Queen St) or Real Groovy Wellington (250 Cuba St) and purchase it. Or you can go on to the Real Groovy website at http://www.realgroovy.co.nz and purchase it, and it gets delivered to your door freight free, as with anything (except vinyl) from their website. (credit card or cheques accepted at the website). Worthwhile checking out the website for anything else you're after - very user friendly with a huge number of titles and a great search function.

If you purchase the album of the week online from Real Groovy during the week, you go in the draw to win a $20 Real Groovy e-voucher which you can spend on a selection of over 1,000,000 music, movie or game titles from Real Groovy.
