This is a NZ music industry event which our school Ukulele Band is performing in. It may also be of interest to our rock musicians as well as our sound and lighting techs. We are leaving school at 12noon and ask the students get picked up from the town hall either at 4.30pm or 5.15pm depending on whether they are attending the song writing workshop.
