Katikati Twilight Concerts heading


Saturday 9 January 2106
Haiku Reserve, Main Street, Katikati

Local bagpipe player Stella Dobbs kicked off the first Twilight Concert for 2016 when she piped current and ex-committee members into the Haiku Reserve to start the new season.

Barrie More thanked them all for their efforts over the last 16 years of Twilight Concerts before Shane Cortese did the honours: as he cut the ribbon on the new stage, the confetti canons fired, and the concert was underway.

A big crowd turned out on a stunning summer evening to hear Shane and his 8 Track Band belt out Kiwi and Aussie favourites like Run to Paradise, Outlook for Thursday, April Sun in Cuba and many more.

Concertgoers were treated to a fantastic show with lots of dancing and people having a great time, a very successful night and a great start to 2016.

The next Twilight Concert is on January 30th with Kokomo and supporting act Sarah Spicer. Bring your picnics and come along for a night of blues.
