Band joins zoo concert series Zoo sounds: Sola Rosa band members Andrew Spraggon of Helensville and Ben White, back, get familiar with Snapper the Galapagos tortoise at Auckland Zoo. By RANI TIMOTI Infectious beats are expected to fill the air at the Auckland Zoo on February 26. Sola Rosa returns to per- form for Wild Bean Cafe Zoo Music from 6pm after playing a set at the band rotunda last year. Founding member Andrew Spraggon is a Helensville resident and his band is known for live shows which slowly wind up the tempo with funk, soul, hip hop, Latin and dub influences. Sola Rosa will be joined by the electro, indie-rock sound of Knives at Noon, and Rio Hemopo s slo-mo, hip hop funk at this concert for con- servation . Band members say last year s performance with Anika Moa was easily one of their top five gigs of all time, especially with an amazing location and a great vibe. Concert proceeds go towards helping wildlife, Auckland Zoo director Jonathan Wilcken says. As well as having species at the zoo to connect our visitors with animals that they wouldn t normally have a chance to see, the zoo also funds international conser- vation initiatives. While our visitors can come in and see Galapagos tortoises, leopard tortoises, Indian star tortoises and snake-neck turtles, we also fund the Asian Turtle Con- servation Network -- which facilitates the rescue, re- habilitation and release of a wide range of endangered turtle species, Mr Wilcken says. Music lovers can come from 5.30pm and visit the animals with their zoo music ticket. Visit www.aucklandzoo. co.nz for tickets and details. The next zoo music concert is on March 4 featuring The Phoenix Foundation and Liam Finn with The Thomas Oliver Band. Sola Rosa is also part of the international and na- tional line-up for the inaug- ural GrassRoots Festival on April 23 and 24 at Puhinui Reserve, Manukau. Organ- ised by Chugg Entertain- ment, it features a multitude of genres. View www.grassroots festival.co.nz for information and tickets.
