February/March 2012

Hi Folks

Just to bring you up to date on what we have been doing over the last couple of months. On the 4th of February I ventured down to Paparoa to Tiny and Loie Heathcotes country music day which was once again well supported and may need to be moved to a bigger venue in the future. Tiny plays bass for us in The Mountain Mist Band. Clear and warm weather made for an enjoyable day. We once again appeared at the Whangarei RSA on Friday the 24th and on Sunday the 26th we were Lucky enough to be invited to do a one hour spot at the Project Promise fundraiser held at Kensington park which featured local acts Kosher, Enertia, The Kiwi Rock Legends band plus ourselves and the main act from Auckland , The Mermaids, which featured local singer Tammy D’Ath. Awesome weather saw a good crowd turn out during the day to listen to and watch all the entertainment that had been organised. We were back at the Kamo club on the 29th to celebrate the Dance Sections 12th birthday always a good gig this one with everyone up and dancing and having a good time.

On the 10th of March we took a short trip up to Waitanga to play at the Accountants National Convention held at the Copthorne Hotel. They had been heavily crunching the numbers all weekend and were ready for the figures to blow out and have a good time. Thanks Alan for the invitation to perform for you all we had a great time. This was a busy weekend for us as well as on the Sunday we headed to Pukekohe to do a guest spot at the Franklin Country Music Club. Their fund raising concert was held at the Pukekohe town hall with a good crowd turning out to enjoy the entertainment. We must thank our good friend Lynette Porter and the Franklin club committee for inviting us to perform.

On Thursday the 22nd we were back at the Kamo club for the Affiliated Clubs Convention. Clubs from all around New Zealand had converged on Kamo and there was a massive crowd for the week. We made some great contacts that will hopefully see us getting work further afield in the future. On the 30th we were back with our very good friends at the Dargaville RSA to entertain and meeting up with some of those joining us on our Norfolk Island Tour. That was about it for February and March.

Take care and keep it country

Annette and Kim
