alf a day of live music by 12 local performing artists will be hitting the screens May 4.

Celebrating NZ music month Wairarapa TV and Property Law Service have teamed up to produce 12 straight hours of live music.

The event is to give local artists the chance to perform on live television and radio.

Wairarapa TV founder Toby Mills said, “it’s something that a lot of people never get a chance to do.”

“They also get the opportunity to have music videos of their performance created which they can use for promotion and in addition to that they get multi-track recordings of their performance that they can use to make a CD or release,” Mills said.

“The whole thing is supported by volunteers who donate their time and the money goes towards renting really top quality equipment that would normally be outside what most performers could afford to rent so we can do a really amazing job of capturing their performance.

“It’s all about the performers.”

David Clark, known as the Holy Loner has been performing for 30 years, and performed the last time Mills organised the event.

“I’m absolutely certain that it is going to be even better this year, so I didn’t want to miss out.”

Another performer, Coral Griffis, has teamed up with other musicians for the music marathon.

Griffis originally signed up for the music marathon without a band – “I thought I could get one together”.

Now with a bass player, lead guitarist and drummer she says they are “having a lot of fun playing together”.

Griffs participated in the last event. “The whole experience was wonderful.”

NZUMEUS Christine Loveday and David Christopher have written and performed together since 1990.

With over 300 songs under their belt, they are enjoying sharing their music with other people.

After thoroughly enjoying participating in the inaugural event they will be bringing new songs and introducing drummer Warren Cameron.

Tickets to be a member of the live audience are available from each performer.

The Property Law Service May Music Marathon will be available on Wairarapa TV Freeview CH41, ArrowFM 92.7FM, YouTube, Facebook and stream.wairarapatv.co.nz
