INTERNeX New Zealand : How was your weekend ?

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was not particularly busy but on Sunday I went to Orakei Domain where I met the Auckland Blues team as they were playing with kids for a little session to meet the fans. I could get some good pictures with All Blacks and had some stuff signed by them.

Chris went to Splore 2012 where apparently he had a great time, camping and going to the concerts.

I hope your weekend was busy but in a good way !

Cheers, Robin

Young and New – musicians in New Zealand!

Yesterday I have been at the Competition for the Songwriter of the Year  from the Auckland University, which inspired me to tell you about some awesome newcoming musicians of  New Zeland.

 

The competition  took place at the Kenneth Myers Centre where 12 qualified musicians performed two songs each. The finalists will perform at the Maidment Theatre on the 29th of September. So if you are still here and love good handmade music you should definitely go there, cause what is a musician without an audience.

 

When the two friends of mine and I entered the room we could feel the creative atmosphere of all the music students in the audience and the tightness because of the presence of the judges.

So we sat down and listened to the compositions of the students.

Out of all the performances there where two artists which I really liked and I can’t forget about their music.

 

The one was Emma Penty. Before she starts to play her two songs she was already entertaining the crowd in an enjoyable way. And when she started her music it was really astonishing for us what you could do with just a keyboard and your voice. Wow… some really new and breathtaking music in the electro-pop section. If you wanna check her music go on http://www.myspace.com/emmapenty or contact her on facebook.

 

If you aren’t that enthusiastic about electronic and experimental music you may like the second one. Sam Allen is a singer songwriter from Auckland. And he performed his two songs with a guitar and the support of his friend at the piano and the bass. His remarkable good music and passion for it drag you along. As a fan of acoustic music you should check his music on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/samallenmusic

And if you like it you can easily support him just by pushing the LIKE button and going to the Grand Final at the 29th of September. Yeah, cause he made it into the final and could be the Songwriter of the Year 2011.

 

I hope this are some inspiring facts for you guys. Defy the rain and refresh your music database!

 

Have a great weekend!

 

Cheers, Caro

Another lucky winner…

Hey guys,

the Picture of the week is found! It shows the Beach of Motuihe Island. Robert choosed it because it impresses him all the time.

Fair enough, I think. But look at it and make your own decision…

As prize, Robert won two tickets for the Rugbygame on Friday, where he can see the Blues vs. Highlanders. Hope you really enjoy the great Kiwievent Robert!

And I am really excited to see your pitures. Send your funny, weird or just beautiful picture of your time in New Zealand to pr@internexnewzealand.com.

After making Robert a lucky winner the 7th Pubnight went on with some really nice chats and drinks at the usual bars, because we had another fellows last Pubnight…so we visited all the typical places where we had been the past Pubnights.

 

 

And I was really lucky to see some new faces at the Pubnight yesterday…that makes it always so interesting…so please don’t hesitate to bring your friends.

We finished the evening at Danny Doolans with some really tasty drinks, a great atmosphere and LIVE MUSIK! I will try to find more of it in this city…;-)

Thanks to all attending yesterday and especially for the new travel ideas…;-)

Cheers guys!

Have a nice start in the weekend!

PuB NiGHT 3.0-Review & Easter-Jazz on Waiheke Island

Last night we had the third Pubnight with some new INTERNeX people and some local kiwis as well which made it a much more international experience.

The special action this week was the Bingo game in the cassette number nine, where we all tried to win one of the hot prizes, like a bottle of Southern Comfort or a meat pack, but unfortunately the luck wasn’t with us last night.

After the Bingo game we tried our luck to get some cheap drinks at the Provedore and the hard core from the first night went on to the globe bar where we met a lot of crazy students wearing costumes for a special party. The boys had a lot of fun with some girls dressed as sexy police officers…:-)

Thanks to all joining the pubnight and hope to see you in two weeks for the next pubnight.

And for all you guys don’t have any plans for the long Easter weekend, here is the ultimate tip:

Visit the Waiheke Jazz Festival on Waiheke Island. This is the best way to combine a visit on this beautiful island with a special music festival. The yearly Waiheke Island International Jazz Festival delivers an entertainment program with venues open all across Waiheke. So if you haven’t been there this is a great chance to go. Friday and Saturday look like they will have the best weather.

The first concerts start around midday but there are also some evening concerts and of course late night entertainment at the Supper Club at the Waiheke Island Resort.

There are several ticket possibilities. So you can grab a JAZZABOUT DAY PASS ($49) for either Friday, Saturday or Sunday or you choose the JAZZABOUT WEEKEND DAY PASS ($120) and enjoy full 3 days of jazz.

If you’re only looking for an activity on Sunday evening you can go to the GRAND FINALE CONCERT at the Bay (Matiatia) which is where the ferry lands on Waiheke from 6 – 9pm. The tickets can be bought in front of the door for only $25.

Enjoy a wonderful Easter weekend whatever you do!

Cheers,
