Napier accommodation providers such as ourselves enjoy the downtime that the Winter can bring, but love it when we find ourselves hosting guests visiting for Napier events, festivals, concerts and the like. On 30th July, Katchafire will be playing live at Napier’s Sideline Bar.
Who Are Katchafire?
Katchafire came onto the NZ music scene in 2000 and released their first album, Revival, in 2003. Originally a Bob Marley cover band, the sound is pure NZ roots reggae. With 7 members at present they have a great sound and an incredible stage presence.
These guys know how to put in work on tour – their live concerts are packed with energy and their music is just as hot on a cold Winter’s night as it is in the middle of Summer at an outdoor event. They have toured multiple countries and played on the same bills as reggae legends like Steel Pulse, Third World and UB40.
What to Expect?
These guys are coming off the back of a huge tour in the USA. We can expect to see them fired up from their time over their and from the gigs they are playing around the country prior to the Napier concert. They haven’t released an album since 2013, so expect a lot of classics and no doubt some new material they are experimenting with live. After Napier they have one gig in Auckland before heading back to the Northern Hemisphere – Europe this time – to soak up some sun and spread the love around France. It wouldn’t be surprising to see some Napier accommodation staff, managers and owners out and about enjoying the event. If you haven’t heard their music and want to know what they are like, check out this classic song from their debut album, or check out the Katchafire homepage here.
