Tiki Taane joins the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour with Aloe Blacc & The Grand Scheme, John Butler Trio, Annabel Fay and Sweet Mix Kids!
In an exciting addition to an already stellar line-up, The More FM Summer Vineyard Tour is pleased to announce Musical Maestro Tiki Taane will join Aloe Blacc, John Butler Trio and Annabel Fay on the tour for an acoustic set, while local DJ favourites the Sweet Mix Kids will also be entertaining between acts.
“I’m super stoked to be part of the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour,” says Tiki. “Last time I saw Aloe Blacc was at Glastonbury and he blew my mind, so I’ve gotta bring it big time! With just you, me and my acoustic guitar, we can get this party started.”
Aussie greats John Butler Trio return to Kiwi shores off the back of releasing a limited edition box set album ‘Live At Red Rocks’. With the release of their 5th studio album and a whirlwind 12 month tour last year, John Butler Trio have garnered incredible respect and rave reviews from fans and media around the world, making them absolutely one of Australia’s biggest music exports and a big hit with New Zealand audiences.
Aloe Blacc’s 2010 worldwide hits, ‘I Need A Dollar’ (commissioned as the theme tune for HBO series How To Make It In America) and ‘Loving You Is Killing Me‘ are merely the tip of a very large iceberg, with Aloe fast becoming the spearhead of modern, 21st century soul. The smooth soul singer has taken over the charts both here and overseas, with television appearances on big shows such as The Graham Norton Show and Later With Jools Holland. His recent sell-out New Zealand shows also received rave reviews: "Blacc oozes charisma and has a remarkable stage presence" (stuff.co.nz) and “Aloe hit notes like the godson of soul” (Groove Guide). Aloe with his band The Grand Scheme is a guaranteed crowd pleaser on the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour for 2012.
Tiki Taane is a multi-platinum award winning artist and considered a pioneer in the New Zealand music scene with a career spanning nearly 15 years. Earlier this year, he took out three Tuis at the New Zealand Music Awards including Best Male Solo Artist, Best Electronica and Best Maori album, as well as re-releasing his #1 Album In The World Of Light which features three bonus tracks, including the epic RWC remix of ‘My Lion’.
His debut LP Past Present Future achieved double platinum sales and picked up a swag of awards, and also features the beautiful acoustic love ballad and number 1 single ‘Always On My Mind’.
Also bringing a local flavour to the show, Kiwi songstress Annabel Fay rounds off the line-up with her catchy pop tracks and soul infused style. Performing hits off her latest album, such as top 20 airplay tracks ‘Show Me The Right Way’, ‘River’ and new single ‘Already Home’, Annabel is all set to wow the crowds at this renowned event.
And finally, joining the fresh upbeat line-up is resident More FM party DJs, Sweet Mix Kids. Masters of the mix with a reputation as New Zealand's most flamboyant DJs, the dynamic duo will join the tour to ensure there’s never a dull moment and will entertain vineyard audiences between acts.
Children under 12 will also receive free entry with a paying adult to ensure a great value night out for the whole family.
Without a doubt the shows will deliver an event to remember, bringing together exciting entertainment, fine wine and food with good company, for an amazing afternoon-turn-evening out. Grab your family and friends and head along to a venue near you.
