On October the 8th the uneasy relationship between Blues-Rock music, and the N.Z.B.C. will take a distinct turn for the better when a live broadcast will take place from the Wellington Opera House of a three hour and twenty minute show put on by 2ZM and promoter Robert Raymond. In all five groups will perform, among them the highly rated Spacefarm and, sounding like a distant relation, Farmyard Spacefarm are in essence the Underdogs from Auckland and Farmyard have worked up a resonably good reputation on the local scene. In addition a surprise group, to be announced, which is rumoured to consist of various musician from other outstanding groups of whom Timberjack has been mentioned.
To help combat the somewhat theatrical and consequently deadening atmosphere of the Wellington Opera House a light show has been imported from overseas comprising some extremely sophisticated and expensive light equipment.
The promoter, Robert Raymond, was formerly the manager of the Seekers and is, of course, the man responsible for bringing Bruce Woodley to New Zealand earlier this year. His main aim has been to bring together the top heavy Blues-Rock groups. He is delighted by the fact that the N.Z.B.C. has for the first time also shown sufficient faith in the talent available to make the performance a live broadcast.
All Blues-Rock fans, and there must be many on campus, can hardly afford to miss this show. Finals or no.
