My good friend Malcolm Lakatani was there with Che Fu as part of the band even though his proteges were performing in the Smokefree Pacifica Beats competition at the same time. Great news for Malcolm is that his band, Revived Rhythm – as it says on the T-shirt, came in first place in the heats!!
The lighting was good, but even so I was using quite high ISOs to keep the shutter speed up at a reasonable speed. Great effects from the lighting crew – almost making Malcolm look somewhat angelic! There’s more photos from the night on my Facebook page. Maybe take a look and perhaps like the page? That way you’ll get to see any new images I add as I shoot the bands etc. Just a reminder that you can always contact me to come and shoot your band if you need promotional images or performance shots.
I’ll finish this post with a few more images from the night. Perhaps leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
What a wonderful evening. Cat Tunks from Black Sand Diva helped organise a great group of musicians out at the Corban’s Estate. Outside somewhat wet and dreary, but inside … wonderfully warm with a great atmosphere.
The evening started with Huia Hamon singing a lovely Waiata. Really very special to have Huia explain the meaning behind the words so we could better appreciate what was being sung. Very special and quite lovely. Sadly, Huia wasnlt on stage very long, but I did manage a few photos of her. Please take a look here and let me know what you think. Want to know more about Huia?

Next to perform were the students from Avondale College. Escorted to the site by the one and only Malcolm Lakatani, these students were superb! A real credit to their tutors and the school itself. Oozing talent … there’s some future music stars in these students that’s for sure!
