We Got Some friends Coming To Play In Summer On The Beautiful Waiheke Island!

Set in the beautiful and tranquil setting of Rangihoua Estate, The name Rangihoua means ‘The Day of Renewal’ and is the name of the land where the main Olive Grove of 1000 trees is planted and where the Frantoio tasting room is situated.

The show runs from 4pm to 9pm with plenty of time to make the last ferries into town. DON'T MISS THIS AMAZING DAY of music, food trucks, olive groves and the beautiful Waiheke Island.

Onstage under a summers evening we have the following acts:

NEW TELEPATHICS

https://www.facebook.com/newtelepathic/
This is music for an intergalactic future!

Respected around the world with an underground cult status, New Telepathics is about communication and pushing the boundaries. Drawing from soul, afrobeat, punk, electronica, jazz, dub and the avant-garde, New Telepathics takes you through a journey to protest the suffering and to celebrate the joy.
A powerhouse of intense groove, New Telepathics' 12 piece line up is fronted by Darryn Harkness (Aotearoa), Nuel Nonsu (Nigeria), Phodiso (Botswana) and Sandy Mill (Aotearoa). With the rhythm and horn section's featuring some of New Zealand’s finest musicians.

THE SANDY MILL BAND

https://www.sandymill.com/?fbclid=IwAR2leUixSJjEEegc17WFE3yxJmnhEB7RhdsxJQFwZfG0AP7yUQRXz8QSbK0

Sandy is well known for her generosity as a musician and her breadth of talent and accomplishments. She is as proficient performing sixties pop melodies and harmonies for New Zealand super-troupe, The Bellbirds (with Victoria Kelly, Don McGlashan, Sean Donnelly) as she is improvising, using her voice as an instrument to recreate gregorian monk chants (with producer Flood reworking of Gary Numan’s Cars album), and across layered irregular time signatures in celebrated 90’s avant-garde, free jazz / dance quartet, Spacesuit. “Basement Jaxx asked me to scream and yell a lot. Not much singing went on in that session, but I learnt another way of approaching the recording process”, she laughs.
The constant here is not just the voice, but also the philosophy. Sandy shares, “I always bare my soul, I can’t help that. I have a carnal need to mix genres, experiment, always strive for better but I know when it’s time to step back; enjoy and embrace the creative process - the good, the bad and the boring. And I don’t let fear stop me from trying something new.”
As one of New Zealand’s most noted vocalists and percussionists, it surprises most to learn Sandy has not had formal training bar “a few singing lessons”. An Audio Engineering and Music Production course at Tai Poutini (now MAINZ) developed Sandy’s understanding of the recording process “and how all the gear works”. Now teaching herself guitar and using piano to compose, which Sandy confesses she cannot technically play, “ but I can plinky plonk until I find the chords I’m after…”
More details about the solo debut album will be revealed in coming months, but rest assured, this multi genre spanning artist has a wealth of New Zealand musician friends and fans that have rallied to shine a light on her incredible talent.
