Think of the New Zealand bands that have had hit after hit across the decades, with songs that are woven into the fabric of Kiwi lives. The Feelers is one of those bands. This summer, they're headlining the Music in Parks 'Kiwi Anthems' event with AutoMatic 80s and guests (to be announced). With five number one albums, seven number one singles and eight NZ Music Awards, including best group and album of the year, The Feelers have received more radio airplay than any other New Zealand artist or band since radio stats began in 1999.
They're joined by AutoMatic 80s, an act that brings the party every year with the very best of early to mid 80s New Romantic and New Wave hits, performed live, loud and pumping. They’ll transport you back to those heady, youthful times with songs from Human League, Simple Minds and Duran Duran to Blondie and Culture Club, and artists like Kate Bush and Robert Palmer. Featuring the astonishing sound-alike vocals and high energy stage antics of frontman Justin Maclaren, AutoMatic 80s is backed up by the pitch-perfect Pearl Runga.
