The Latest From Moana...
Every Day is Waitangi Day (17 Feb)
We had 3 performances during Waitangi Weekend, all of them wonderful events. One out east at Flatbush, a 2nd in the West at Hoani Waititi Marae and the 3rd in my old hood of Mangere. The band had a choice time and it was wonderful catching up with old mates and other musicians. Now we are looking forward to Tunes in the Dunes, a collaboration with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra on March 7. More about that soon.
