SunLive Competition

After a nearly five-month break away from the stage, Kokomo is chomping at the bit and raring to get back to business this month.

The band’s six stalwarts of Tauranga’s music scene are promising something old and something new when they take to the stage at the Omokoroa Boat Club on Sunday, August 21.

The band’s last performance was their sold-out Easter concert at Baycourt Community and Arts Centre, where Kokomo launched their two-CD collection ‘Batten Down the Hatches’.

“We have a bunch of new exciting things we want to share and a pile of old favourites that need dusting off,” says frontman Derek Jacombs.

“The Omokoroa Boat Club seems the perfect place to do that; friendly people and a nice intimate venue, the ideal place to air out some old Delta blues and to launch a couple of absolutely-new-fresh-off-the-block-as-yet-unheard-by-anyone-except-the-band songs.”

If you love Kokomo and want to see and hear them when they hit Omokoroa later this month then make sure you get your ticket quick smart as the boat club only holds about 140 people.

Kokomo play the Omokoroa Boat Club on Sunday, August 21. Doors open 1.30pm. Tickets cost $22.50 or $20 for club members, and are available online from Eventfinda or call Omokoroa Boat Club on 07 548 0960.


The Weekend Sun has two double passes and two copies of Kokomo’s latest album ‘Batten Down the Hatches’ to give away to two lucky reader who can tell us when Kokomo last performed?

All entries must be received by Wednesday, August 17.
