Youth Bands at the Pool

8 June 2010

A swimming pool is not your typical music venue, but from this Friday night Keith Spry Pool in Johnsonville will offer youth bands the opportunity to strut their stuff on stage.

The Tangles will perform this Friday (11.06.10) at Keith Spry Pool

The new Youth Band Night series of events kick off with performances from The Tangles and Flamingo Pink, with other bands performing fortnightly at the pool until the end of August.

Matt Kilgour, Manager of Keith Spry Pool, says the idea behind the nights is to give young bands the chance to showcase their music in a unique venue.

"It's a great way to promote youth music in Wellington. Young people can swim or just come along and enjoy the music. There will also be free Hell pizzas and prizes to be won."

Entry fee is $5 per person. Bands will play from 7.00pm to 9.00pm on the following dates: Fridays 11 June, 25 June, 9 July, 23 July, 6 August and 20 August. For further information visit the Feeling Great website.
