Following last year’s sell-out performance, the Milford Street Shakers are set to do it all again with Motown Hits The Hills. Once again, the stunning outdoor setting will reverberate to the power-house voice of Lee Morunga leading a dynamic and explosive nine-piece band taking a musical journey back to the American epicentre of Motown.
As soon as these dapperly clad cats take to the stage their passion for the 1960s is obvious in every single note. The Milford Street Shakers are more than a typical cover band – this enigmatic 9-piece delivers a Motown spectacular of epic proportions!
The Milford Street Shakers take you on a memorable journey across the iconic 60s musical landscape, bridging the simplicity of the blues with the sheer expressivity of R&B. Their unique take on classics like ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’, ‘Land of 1000 Dances’ and ‘Uptight (Everything’s Alright)’ will get you out of your seats and dancing to their groovy beats.
With their infectious energy, the Milford Street Shakers are a sight to be seen, a band to be heard and a phenomenon to be experienced!
As well as Lee Morunga on lead vocals the line-up includes, James Vinciullo on bass, Dominic D’Leno on drums, Imogen Thomson on percussion, Kallan Phillips on guitar, Austin Salisbury on keyboard and the ‘Three Wise Men’ on horns, Robert Bresland on trumpet, Glyn MacDonald on trombone and Mark Sprogowski on baritone sax.
This year’s concert will be on Saturday, April 7, from 6pm to 9pm. The evening will begin with an opening performance by singer songwriter Reo Dunn (Te Reotakiwa Dunn), a well-known New Zealand artist who won Best Maori Album in 2006.
His voice is compared to that of Stevie Wonder and his repertoire of R&B and blue tunes will be a perfect complement to the Milford Street Shakers.
Reo will hand over to The Milford Street Shakers performing Motown Hits The Hills until 9pm.
Bring the family, a picnic rug and come along and enjoy a wood-fired pizza, a selection of delicious meals from the A La Carte Menu, hot pork rolls and a beverage under the stars while enjoying some fabulous music!
