Open Mic Night

After neighbour's night on June 13th we had our first open mic night. The evening was arranged at the last minute by Kimberley and was open to all-comers. Word spread quickly and we had a great turn-out with lots of great acts from within the community and the wider community including:

  • Eileen Ngawaka singing a couple of originals
  • Charles and Nova Nepia singing an old family favourite from Englebert Humperdinck
  • Waimarama singing and playing a few originals
  • our own Charlene and Kim causing a karaoke sensation with a creative rendition of Kiss and Say Goodbye
  • Paul singing an oldy by Bread from the 70's
  • Anne Marie singing from that great 70's show Jesus Christ Superstar
  • Kimberley singing a couple of her favourite standards (with baby Emmett strapped on)
  • Kimberley and Evelyn singing supported by Eileen on guitar
  • Sahara and Nova with a beautiful rendition of I'm Yours
  • John with a touching rendition of I Believe (theme song from the Canadian winter olympics)
  • Lukas playing a couple of Beetles standards and a composition of his own on piano
  • the kids singing a couple of waiata
  • another group of us singing Whakaaria Mai with Eileen on guitar

Everyone had a wonderful time and we can't wait 'till the next one!
