Dargaville & Districts
Getting the music out there when you're a musician is not always easy so three Kiwis have taken it upon themselves to record and promote New Zealand music under the banner The People's Coalition.
Last week Kurt Black, Kemp Tuirirangi and Gary Hibbs hit Dargaville with two CDs – Alive n Kicking, a nine-song lazy Sunday morning CD, and Peoples You Are Under Audio Surveillance, a 20-track compilation.
Kurt says 11 bands from Auckland to Invercargill feature on the CDs "most with 9 to 5 jobs".
"We're asking people to support the music and buy a copy," he says.
"There's a mix of rock and roll, blues to dubstep – all with a kiwiana summer feel."
Kurt is a singer-songwriter and the main promoter.
"I've been doing this on and off with my own music since 2006," he says.
To buy some music, check out The People's Coalition on Facebook and get hold of the administrator Kurt says.
