House of Shem (8:45pm - 10pm):
Super South Pacific Reggae band House of Shem, will bring to you the hits of their Gold-selling album “Keep Rising” and the brand new album “Island Vibration”, which was recorded and mixed by Bob Marley’s recording engineer Errol Brown. House of Shem consists of Carl Perkins, a Kiwi reggae ambassador who was a member of iconic NZ band “Herbs”. Joining Carl are his two sons Te Omeka & Isaiah who provide lead vocals, keyboards & production duties. The band backing this powerhouse is one of the best reggae riddimsections to come out of the South Pacific: Mr Kaya Webster on drums, Francis Harawira on bass and Roy Venkataraman on lead guitar.

1814 (7:20pm – 8.20pm):
Inspired after playing music in church for several years, Patu Colbert (Lead Guitar) formed reggae band 1814 with his sons Shaun and Jimmy in 2004. Based in the far north, the beautiful Whangaroa Harbour is where the band gets their inspiration to write and produce their own music, which they describe as being addictive with sweet soulful vocals, upbeat grooves and wicked sax lines with a strong message of peace, love and harmony.

Patea Maori Club (6:40pm - 7.10pm):
The Patea Maori Club is a household name. Their smash hit 'Poi E' was the biggest selling single in Aotearoa (New Zealand), peaking at No.1 for four weeks. The group has won award after award, including best group in the New Zealand Entertainer of the Year Award. In 1994, the first original soundtrack to 'Poi E' went Gold and the group were awarded the Golden Scroll Award in the 1994 Entertainer of the Year Awards.

Sweet Echo (5:50pm - 6.30pm):
Sweet Echo are a whanau band from Tokoroa with four of the five members being siblings of Cook Island descent from the Monga whanau. Their sound is a mix of reggae, R 'n' B, soul/Motown, and 'polyfonk' (the moniker used to describe their uncle Ryan Monga's 'Ardijah' band). The main priority of Sweet Echo is to have fun, and this reflects in their performance.

Kougar Sistahs (5pm - 5.40pm):
The Kougar Sistahs are 7 individually amazing vocalists with long standing careers. Together, they blend their vocal skills with instruments to create a unique original sound which sets them apart as the only all-girl 7-piece reggae band in the world. We are proud of this achievement, but our aim is to continue to write music which soothes our souls and excites our hearts. We have always been singers first and foremost, so adding instruments to the mix has been a challenge which we have embraced along with the support of our brothers in the music industry.

The name Kougar can be interpreted anyway you like. We chose it because it creates an instant image of a woman who goes out to get what she wants. We are vivacious and fierce, staunch and proud, strong-willed and determined, sexy and sultry. We are women having fun with our music. Our sisterhood comes first... the musical magic we create within the Kougar Sistahs is a bonus...
