Wellington-based band Trinity Roots is headed back to the Bay of Plenty for another New Year's Eve gig.
But this time the band is booked in at the Papamoa Beach Tavern in Beach Road, which has morphed from a sports bar into a seaside bar cum restaurant cum entertainment venue.
Trinity Roots has been commonly associated with New Zealand reggae, however the sound has been billed as bringing together something between head-nodding reggae, slow burning funk and jazz adventurism to form “undeniably indigenous waiata, unconstrained by genre boxes.”
Since the band's inception, five-year hiatus and then reformation in 2010, Trinity Roots has performed sell-out shows locally and globally, building on its reputation as a multi-award winning, platinum-selling band.
Trinity Roots has almost become a New Year fixture in the Bay of Plenty. When 49,000 people flocked to the beach at Mount Maunganui to welcome in 2017, Trinity Roots was the headline act.
The Papamoa Tavern is delighted to have Trinity Roots aboard to see in 2018. “We're stoked to be hosting Trinity Roots this New Year's Eve. The epic vibes will be too irresistible to not bop along too.”
The gig starts at 5pm on December 31 to 1am on January 1. DJs Ayesha and Mr Bambolocat will be the support arts. Tickets are $45 and available from www.eventfinda.co.nz
