From rock n’ roll love triangles to soulful music and parodies, the Shake Rattle & Roll Operatunity Daytime Concert at St Columba Church on Tuesday was one of the best in the concert series.
There was hardly anyone in the audience that wasn’t swaying to the music, shaking or tapping their feet as the vocalists and musicians did their thing.
Pop royalty Suzanne Lynch part of the iconic Kiwi duo The Chicks was quite the star as she paired up with rock n’ roll star Pat Urlich (how does he move those hips and legs?), and Operatunity’s favourites Karl Perigo and Bonaventure Allan-Moetaua—together the heady combination made perfect music.
The highly talented performers and musicians knew how to work the crowd at the Daytime Concert Series held at St Columba Church. Times photos Farida Master.
Accompanying them were highly talented and seasoned musicians Ron Coleman, Bruce French and Ray Eade.
Eye-catching costumes, entertaining banter and great timing on stage had the audience high on melodies with some of the all-time favourites from the 60s. With greatest hits from Elvis Presley, Bill Hayley and the Comets, Bobby Day, Shelley Fabares, Fats Domino and more, the audience couldn’t help but shake, rattle and roll with the music!
