Then on FRIDAY 8th - 7.30 pm NORM Fab guitar Music & Singing Will get you in the groove Rockabilly sing-along goes outdoors Sellout show: Eastern perform at Kaikohe and are expected to return in spring. Eastern musical group performed to an enthusiastic audience at the Pioneer Vil- lage this month. The concert was planned as a picnic affair but threatening rain brought about a change of plans. Shifting into the Coach- house with gazebos out front for those who could not fit inside, gave the country musicians an excellent alternative venue and created a rustic ambience that suited the audience. Songs, interspersed with quirky humour, kept the fans clamouring for more. The catchy rhythms enticed dancers. The event was topped off by the last item performed out- side the Coachouse in the gazebo where this part of the audience had heard but not seen the musicians. Eastern plans to be back in the spring and judging by the response of the patrons, they will achieve another sellout audience. Eastern was brought to Kaikohe by the Kaikohe Community Arts Council as part of their desire to provide the Community with a var- iety of Arts culture and musi- cal entertainment.
