An all-star lineup of Aotearoa artists will perform together this October in tribute to Aaron Tokona, songwriter and guitar hero of Weta, AHoriBuzz, Cairo Knife Fight, Bongmaster and much more, who sadly passed away on Saturday 20th June of a heart attack. Auckland’s show at Whammy Bar sold out fast so make sure you grab your tickets pronto.
In celebration of Tokona’s spirit and to help support his whanau, a small army of significant local music figures will be jamming Weta, AHoriBuzz and Cairo Knife Fight tunes, including Joel Shadbolt (L.A.B.), Francis Kora (Kora) Clint Harris and Andy Lynch (OpShop / The Feelers), Gareth Price & Tosh Graham (Semi Lemon Kola), Jason Peters (Pumpkinhead), Jason Faafoi (The Stereo Bus), Tuma Tokona & Hori Pirere (AHoriBuzz), Alex Ferrier & Sam Holdom (Skinny Hobos) and Jimi Kara (Fly My Pretties) and his band.
