Taupo luxury lodge hosts live concert

On December 30, 2008, Tauhara Sunrise hosted a live concert, featuring the jazz and rhythm sounds of Hot Club Sandwich. An intimate setting with 2 marquees and a warm summer evening provided the perfect venue for the 55 people who attended.

Live music at Tauhara Sunrise Luxury Lodge, Taupo.

Rob & Becky McEwen of Tauhara Sunrise are passionate about live music and love to play a role in promoting music in Taupo. "A setting such as ours provides a more personal and interactive environment for both the band and for those attending" says Rob. "Everyone has a chance to mix and mingle with the band - the whole experience is very relaxed."

This was the second concert hosted by Tauhara Sunrise, with more to follow in 2009. The first featured visiting US singer/songwriter Carl Tosten. 

"Tauhara Sunrise is a great place to stay if you're into music" says Rob. "I am constantly on the lookout for new music using web sites like thesixtyone.com, jango.com, lastfm and live365. One of our favorite things to do is to find out the music and artist preferences of our guests and play some of that music during their stay with us. Like food and wine, music is another interest that really connects people, which is really the business we're in," says Rob.

Tauhara Sunrise overlooks Lake Taupo, featuring expansive, 180 degree views. "Even visitors from New Zealand, familiar with our country's incredible vistas, are awestruck when they stand on our patio," says Rob.
