SunLive - The Bay's news first

SunLive Competition

Tauranga residents are invited to venture over the hill for an afternoon of musical highlights, as three top New Zealand acts take to a specifically-designed pontoon for Rotary Matamata’s third annual Concert by the Lake on Sunday, February 19.

The show features iconic NZ musicians including ‘The Lady Killers’ – made up of Tina Cross, Jackie Clarke and Suzanne Lynch – Kiwi songstress Jamie McDell and Auckland-based funky jazz band Two Many Chiefs in a line-up which is sure to entertain.

Rotary Matamata’s Lynette Stanley says the event is an opportunity to see some amazing talent while enjoying a picnic in park-like surroundings in rural Matamata.

“The venue is truly unique and offers a natural amphitheatre for listening to music while also relaxing on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

“We believe the line-up we have performing this year is truly first rate and we expect hundreds of people to attend.

“Each of the artists is really looking forward to putting on a show the audience will remember so we encourage people to get their tickets early.”

Proceeds from the charity event will be distributed to local health and youth projects within the town. Tickets for the event, at 162 Jondor Rd, RD2 Matamata, cost $45 and can be purchased at:

SunMedia has one double pass to the Concert by the Lake to give away to one lucky reader who can name the Kiwi songstress performing at the event?
