Introducing Mr Wayne Anderson Singer of Songs
Star of the TVNZ Mockumentary "Glory Days"
Wayne Anderson sings songs from the Fifties, Sixties, Seventies, Eighties and Nineties. He's got a huge three and a half octave voice and performs to karaoke CD's of all the classics. He can sing ten minutes, he can sing up to an hour and is in my humble opinion the greatest singer that I've had the pleasure to hear in the wider Manurewa area if not the world.

If you love the classics and classic looks and think most modern music is sadly lacking in these departments then Mr. Wayne Anderson might just be the performer you need.

Having an office party? Getting married? Are you in need of cheering up? Music puts wings on the spirit and Wayne Anderson is Mr. Music.

Tom Jones, Englebert Humperdinck, Elvis, Gene Pitney, Roy Orbison, Neil Diamond, Pat Boone...and so the list goes on, basically the "big-voiced ballad singers" of the 1960s-70s

Introducing Midge Marsden
The Iconic Midge Marsden needs no introduction..Marsden's career spans four decades, and during that time he has played thousands of concerts in New Zealand and introduced several generations of New Zealanders to the blues.

Marsden has toured the USA four times, and each time he has played with and befriended artists such as Little Willy Foster, Bobby Mack, Ronnie Taylor, and Australian Dave Boyle. He has encouraged all these artists to tour New Zealand, and thus broadened New Zealanders' appreciation of blues music. Marsden was a student at the University of Mississippi in 1996, from where he graduated with a Diploma in Southern Studies, and more recently he has tutored at Waikato Institute of Technology in "Bluesology".

In 2006 Marsden was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to music.
