October/November 2014

There were a couple of celebrations to begin October. The first was the 69th birthday of the Whangarei RSA Women’s section. Once again we had an enjoyable afternoon with the ladies (and D”Arcy) from RSA’s around the North who had come to celebrate with Whangarei. We look forward to their 70th next year. Speaking of 70th’s, coming into existence one year before the RSA’s Women’s Section was our very good friend, Des Fatt. We got together with Des and Sharon plus family and friends to celebrate Des’ 70th birthday at the Dargaville RSA on the 10th. A great night was had by all that attended. The following Friday we were back in Dargavile to entertain the locals at the RSA.

The first Friday in November we were performing at the Whangarei RSA where we received the news that following a survey of club members on the acts that perform at the RSA we topped the list as the most popular act. So thank you to everyone that voted for us. We look forward to entertaining you all in 2015.

On the 15th of November we headed to Te Awamutu with “The Mountain Mist Band” to do our own show. A very enthusiastic and appreciative audience enjoyed a night of our style of country music. Some travelled down from Auckland, across from Tauranga and all the way up from New Plymouth, which we appreciated very much. It was an awesome night. We performed songs from our latest cd “Try A Little Kindness” in the first half of the show and in the 2nd half of the show we got to perform songs that we usually only get to do when we are performing with the band which is something we hope to do more of in the future. So look out for one of our shows coming to a venue near you.

Thank you to Val and Ray Thurgood for their support and help in organizing the show. Also to Barry Rabarts for answering our S.O.S. and getting to the show to video the 2nd half for us. Thank you to Ian, Andrew, Tiny and Richard for an excellent show, to Robin on sound and to you our fans for supporting us and making it such an awesome night. The highlight being the medley which everyone sang along to with gusto. Brilliant!!!

We have a few gigs to finish off the year so keep an eye out for those and we look forward to 2015 and the Marton  and Barham festivals in January and February respectively. We will also be doing a show in Wanganui on Wednesday the 14th of January at the War Memorial Hall. This is on our way to Martin so if you are in the area come along for a night of country music. Keep an eye out for advertising for this show it’s going to be a great night and an appetiser for the Marton festival.

There are still a couple of places left on our Norfolk Island tour so be quick if you want to join us for a week of country music on an awesome little island in the South Pacific.

That’s about it for now. We will keep in touch but until then take care and keep it country.

Best wishes

Annette and Kim
