But Heritage Kai- kohe's Pioneer Village throbbed with rock mu- sic when musicians staged a concert there on November 21. The four-hour concert, organised by BT Pro- motions to raise money for Heritage Kaikohe featured T-Rhode, Tha Boyz, Double JJ (Josh Matene), Max Cochraine, Jack Tane and John Pera. A highlight of the show was a jam session involving 10 guitarists. BT Promotions spokes- woman Debbie Taylor says it was good to see that some younger musicians had evolved as artists since the first BT concert 12 months ago. Our aim has been to make it easier for musicians and to encour- age and promote the talents with the help of Max Cochraine, Jack Tane, Tip Nikora, Tony Taylor and other experi- enced musicians.'' She was grateful to the hundreds of people who attended the concert and open day at the village despite rain early in the day. The village volunteers were run off their feet with the lines of people wanting to get on the train.'' She was also impressed by the way community groups sup- ported the event. ATC ran the gates and the Ratana Band kept us well fed. Special thanks must also go to the Kaikohe Maori Wardens for crowd control and for keeping the young ones from stampeding the bands.'' BT Promotions will showcase musicians from the Kaikohe area again at the Kaikohe Christ- mas Parade on Decem- ber 10 and at the Carols on the Green at the Pion- eer Village on December 12.It also plans to hold a buskers' day in the town on December 22.
