Grassroots Mixer // Take 1!

9 05 2011

The NiuFM Grassroots Mixer Concert Series takes place on the Otara Town Centre Stage for three Saturdays in May to celebrate Pacific music, NZ Music Month and provide audiences with a FREE gig to kick start their weekends! The first gig on Saturday 7 May went OFF!!

South Auckland’s own 10-piece reggae band Three Houses Down headlined with a signature high energy, crowd pleasing performance!

Grace Ikenasio and her awesome band, Dei Hamo and the Church Boiiz also performed beautifully!

It was awesome to hear saxophone, both alto + soprano, played lived in the Otara Town Centre!

Playing the Otara Town Centre on a Saturday morning can be a tough gig! But it’s so awesome to see excellent Pacific musicians performing for free right at the grassroots… very cool.

Good job Otara Music Arts Centre (OMAC) staff, Team NiuFM, Three Houses Down, Grace Ikenasio, Church Boiiz and Dei Hamo! Next week has a rock SOLID line-up too featuring amongst others… Otara’s own FMC VXN! She recently took out Hustle It Fresh, a talent quest on TVNZ’s hit Pacific youth programme, Fresh and will be performing LIVE and FREE this Saturday 14 May, only in Otara!
