MUSICIANS SHOW A ‘CAN’ DO ATTITUDE

Wellington hip-hop group Beatrootz don’t have the answer to the current recession, but that won’t stop them contributing what they can to the cause. The 3 piece unit have been together since 2005 and have had charting hits within the NZ music landscape. Alongside gigs with other high profile artists, they regularly entertain in community events such as local festivals.

Whilst organising details for their next gig, MC Lovak (Avina Kelekolio) turned his attention to the news which was broadcasting the severity of the recession not only on families, but also on the food banks. This prompted an idea for the group to give something back to those people in need. “We’ve always used music as a way of portraying a message while entertaining. Now we have a chance to use our music to put food on the table” says vocalist Dee (Damien Ekenasio).

Their next show on Friday 3rd April is giving them the opportunity to substitute their normal door charge, with a can of food entry. “All food proceeds from our gig will go towards the local food bank. It’s not much, but every little bit counts” states MC C-Coll (Chris Collins). Beatrootz management were contemplating a few issues with collecting food items at the venue (Coyote Bar), but the bar have come on board and supported the initiative by the young men. “We hope to lead an example for other profiled artists to give what they can”.
