The lineup consists of 5 talented up and coming acts. Performing a mixture of covers and originals over a wide range of genres, such as: Rock, Indie, Blues, Reggae, Singer/Songwriter and many more.
Ready, Set!: Heya, We're Ready, Set! A Kickass band of young, dedicated musicians looking to blow your socks off. We love all kinds of music and play a bunch of different genres, ranging from Hard Rock to a nice and mellow Indie. This year we won the 2023 Northland Region Rockquest and last year got the 2022 Northland ZM Best Song Award so you have got a lot to look forward to! We can't wait to play for everyone and we know you will enjoy your time listening to some fine tunes.
Blind Eyes: Blind Eyes is a local band who are gaining a lot of momentum among Whangārei Youth and local creatives! These guys are one of the top up and coming bands in all of Northland. They play a variety of genres and have been compared to massive bands such as Sublime & LAB but mainly have their own unique sound compared to other NZ Bands. They have wowed crowds at so many Te Tai Tokerau Event’s and have been having a great response regarding their performances and original music.
Basement: Hi we are basement, we are a 5 person band made up of students from Huanui College. We formed last year off the basis of having a bit of fun and playing a few covers together. We had our first proper gig at 116 in August which sold out and we donated $200 to the Brain Injury Association. We play many covers of old and new and our plans are to write some songs together for the near coming future.
Lucy: Alternative indie solo artist from WGHS. 17 years old with a passion for music. 2nd place at the 2023 Northland regional SFRQ.
Isabela Cameron: I’m 17, just finished my last year of high school. The genres I specialise in are indie pop andsoft pop. This year came 1st in the 2023 Northland regional Solo/Duo category. I have only started writing and performing songs this year.
Doors open at 6pm. This gig will start at 6:30pm and finish at 8:00pm. Food and soft drinks will be available via the ONEONESIX bar. So purchase your tickets right now and come support whangarei’s emerging youth music scene!
