Who is Tait Kora? Have you heard of the band Kora? If you haven't .. where've you been?

Tait Kora is multi talented dad to four of the Kora brothers from the band Kora and it's easy to see where they get their talent from when you hear Tait's band perform.

Born and bred in Waimana, Whakatane, he formed the Tait Kora Band about 5 years ago and performs at various venues around the Bay of Plenty, but he's itching to get amongst it and play nationally and internationally.

He's been singing and playing music all his life and says he was inspired by the 60s and 70s anologe sound that he was brought up on.

His band offers a similiar sound and the funk-soul-jazz-mix with electro-dubby-rock twist is getting noticed.

You get the chance to see Tait and his band in concert at the Ohinemuri Estate Winery on Sunday the 7th of April. It should be a great night of wine, music and Tait Kora Band sounds.

Make sure you book as seats and tables are limited. Phone Horst or Wendy on 07 862 8874 to secure your place.
