STUFF PREMIERE: ARTISTS TALK ABOUT ARTISTS
January 16, 2015
Before the Winery Tour kicks off next weekend in Tauranga we’ve caught up with some of the artists.
And instead of getting them to talk about themselves and their music, we’ve asked Don McGlashan, Supergroove and Anika Moa to tell us a bit about their tour-mates on the nine-venue trek.
First are Supergroove telling us how they met Dave Dobbyn.
The Can’t Get Enough hit-makers who broke up in 1997 and re-formed in 2007 are gearing up to bring their funk-rock back to the masses.
The seven-piece picked up this year’s Legacy Award at the New Zealand Music Awards.
McGlashan, who shares a stage with Dobbyn on the tour, remembers when he first met Moa aboard at the new Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior.
“She’s one of those people who make you feel like you have known them forever – when you’ve only just met them,” he says.
It’s the first time he will tour with Moa and he can’t wait to see her set.
Last up is Moa who reveals how she fell in love with Supergroove when she was 13 and Scorpio Girls just came out.
Being a Maori from Christchurch she especially found hip-hop and Supergroove star Che Fu inspiring but she’s never seen him or Supergroove live.
“This Winery Tour gives me a chance to a) watch them play for the first time, and b) actually sing with them, which would be awesome,” she says.
The tour will visit Tauranga, Auckland, Matakana, Havelock North, Martinborough, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Upper Moutere (Nelson) and Waipara (Christchurch).
