Paradise Playground 21 Paradise Playground KATIKATI Twilight Concerts 2013 That’s what is in store for you this summer at the Katikati Twilight Concert Series. Mark these dates on your calendar and grab a concession ticket to attend them all. January 6, 2013 JamesRay, one of the hottest young country rock artists around will be in town. He’s a hard core country boy; singer, songwriter and international multi-award winning entertainer. Raised on the music of the proud Southern states of America he grew up eating, breathing and living the songs he sings. Being invited on a world tour with Bob Dylan gave JR the opportunity to expose his music to a vast cross section of people. Later travelling to New Zealand and becoming a husband, father and New Zealand citizen JR found a unique niche for himself as a much demanded solo artist as well as co-billings with such Kiwi icons as the Topp Twins and Gray Bartlett. Performing all over Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand has given this international performing artist plenty to sing and write about. January 27, 2013 High, Wide and Handsome are a meaty mix of old and new with a lot of spice and heaps of groove. Featuring Jackie Clarke, Rikki Morris and Chet O’Connell they will take the stage in the Haiku Reserve and have you out of your seats from the very beginning. Performer and singer, Jackie is a consummate professional who adds sparkle to every occasion. She is an absolute natural on stage and this is guaranteed to be a highlight of the summer calendar. When she pairs up with Rikki Morris and Chet O’Connell the result is dynamic as they belt out some good old kiwi tunes. Jackie will blow you away with her talent, combine that with some humour and glamour, add Rikki and Chet then we are rocking - make sure you have your dancing shoes on. February 17, 2013 The Tauranga Big Band has been the centrepiece of swing and jazz in Tauranga for over 50 years. In February they will perform as part of the Twilight Concert series in Katikati.
