A super celebration of all things to do with guitars.
Electric or acoustic, whether you play, listen,jam or just admire. Join us on October 10 at the Black Sheep Bar & Grill, just off the main highway on Plummer's Point Rd, Whakamarama, 10 minutes north of Bethlehem.
There'll be an art exhibition, guitar competition and a demonstration by local performer Josh Durning. This gorgeous rural setting is a family friendly venue, so the kids may wish to draw their favourite guitar too and bring along their drawing, (or their guitar). The competition will be split into two categories – acoustic and electric – and any musical genre or style of play is acceptable.
Entrants may prefer to play along to a backing track, or have another musician play alongside to perform two pieces/songs (originals or covers). The Black Sheep and DHL Groove Ltd are hosting this event. DHL director Les Robinson says the two companies are pleased to be extending their joint hosting venues and raising their community profiles as supporters of the arts in the Bay of abundance.
The performances will be judged by Apollo Steam Train’s Brendan McCarthy, The Billy Taylor Band’s Wiremu Billy Taylor and the Rock Shop’s Sean Hose, all accomplished and experienced musicians in their own right. Prizes have kindly been sponsored by the Rock Shop and others will be awarded at the end of the evening. Starts 6.30pm.
