Friday and Saturday night functions will rock LIVE MUSIC
More reasons to make sure you have your tickets sorted for the reunion weekend. We have chosen two well-known and popular local Waikato bands to be part of our celebrations. We will have great live music on Friday and Saturday evening functions, with both bands having a history with the College and Matamata area, this is going to be pretty special.
‘Who’s Asking’ band members will be playing at the After Party on Friday evening.
Terry Shoston and Chris McMahon met in Matamata back in the 70’s when they both married Matamata ladies. They have fond memories of playing with Matamata locals with Colin and Paul Doherty, Warren Feek and Rex Barnes over the years. These days Who’s Asking is a popular fixture around the Hamilton area playing Classic Rock songs, guaranteed to get us all up dancing.
‘The Good Ole Boys’ are well known in Matamata and will be rocking our Saturday night.
They have been around for over 10 years operating under the name Shades of Grey. Not to be confused with the Movie ‘Shades of Grey’ we are told!
Recently, with the addition of a new drummer they changed their name to “The Good Old Boys” but their focus is still well known dance music, that keeps everyone up dancing. They are a four piece band – bass guitar, lead guitar, rhythm guitar, and drums.
Both bands are excited about performing here and renewing some old acquaintances.
FREE Registration for over 90’s
A complimentary registration is extended to any past pupils, teachers, or staff of Matamata College who are 90 years of age or over. They are our super special VIP guests, and that means they are exempt from the $50 compulsory registration fee. They would just need to pay if they wish to attend one of the three functions over the weekend, or wish to purchase a book.
