Dexter R Annison is proud to bring Rough Cut NZ to Hamilton for the first time. Rough Cut NZ is a local musician showcase offering independent artists and bands the opportunity to share their music. Taking place at Mystery Creek Events Centre, on Friday December 13th the event will feature some of the region’s most talented musicians.

Many chart topping artists were raised or studied in the Waikato and the region is well known for producing the likes of Kimbra, Crowded House, and Avalanche City. However, with limited options in Hamilton’s music scene for young people, one keen young music fan decided it was time for someone to get the ball rolling and bring a concert to the region that would provide the local community with an affordable, live music experience on their doorstep.

Seventeen-year-old Dexter Annison is the entrepreneurial organiser of the innovative event and said the main idea of Rough Cut is to help uncover and give a voice to some of New Zealand’s talented but lesser known artists.

'There are limited options out there for artists wanting to share their music at concerts held within the region. The musical talents of many emerging artists can now be recognised and enjoyed by the community in this new event,' said Dexter.

'It’s exciting to see so many people getting involved with Rough Cut NZ and sticking their neck out for the community and for these musicians. I owe huge thanks to everyone who’s helping out; it’s all shaping up to be an amazing evening!'

The family friendly event is taking place at Mystery Creek Events Centre, home of the annual Parachute Music Festival, located just ten minutes drive from Hamilton.

Situated in Mystery Creek’s historic Bledisloe Hall, the music event will provide an evening of variety, with both upbeat pop / rock cover bands and mellow indie / folk artists.

The evening’s entertainment will be introduced by Justine Allen, Co-Host on Waikato's Classic Hits at The Radio Network, and features the following line-up:

From Hamilton - Little Brother Dan Brunskill

From Cambridge - Rosie Belle i

From Cambridge - Katherine Parsons

From Cambridge - Leah Navanua

From Cambridge - Harry Parsons

From Putaruru - All Of A Kind

From Cambridge, Te Awamutu & Hamilton - Flamin’ Nora

From Hamilton - Sound The Ocean

From Hamilton & Mount Maunganui - Joseph & Maia

The event will also feature a relaxed cafe area with food and non-alcoholic beverages offered for sale by popular cafe and catering company, Hazel Hayes.

The venue has a maximum capacity so early purchase of tickets is recommended to avoid disappointment.
