The Crimson Club: From left Melissa Garber, Shona Jaunas and Janet Holborow will combine with Henpicked for a party in Paekakariki on Saturday. Frivolous musical trip By MARGARET IRVINE Paekakariki s The Crimson Club and Henpicked, from Otaki, are joining forces to throw a Mad Hatter s Tea Party in Paekakariki on Saturday. After playing at the Kapiti Sustainable Home and Garden Show in March, the musicians realised they had much in com- mon. We both have a bit of a quirky sense of humour and we both like getting dressed up in costumes and making a perform- ance that takes people on a journey, says Crimson Club singer Shona Jaunas. Not only that, but both groups feature accordion, an instrument which lends itself to the sound of a shared evening among friends. Cellist Janet Holborow said concert-goers were invited to dress up as characters from the original Mad Hatter s Tea Party or any character inspired from the Mad Hatter s sense of fan- tasy and frivolity . The Crimson Club have been performing for three years in Kapiti and Wellington. Their multi-instrumentalist line-up features Jaunas (vocals, violin) Melissa Garber (accordion, theremin, vocals, percussion) and Holborow (cello, vocals, alto flute and bass drum). In last year s Whirlwind Worldwide Wellington Tour, they played at halls around the region finishing with a season at Bats Theatre. Henpicked features inter- national award-winning songwriter Dean Murray (guitars, harmonica, vocals) Carylann Martin (keyboards, accordion, vocals) Kirsten London (bass, vocals) and Anje Glindemann (drums, vocals). They were recently featured on Radio NZ with Jim Mora. There will be prizes for best dressed and maddest hat at Saturday s concert. Saturday, 8pm, St Peter's Hall, Paekakariki, $15. Auxiliary aims high Dainty cakes and music for dancing will feature at the Waikanae Cancer Auxiliary s Winter High Tea next month. We are hoping people will come dressed art-deco style from the 1920s to 1950s when high teas were in vogue, but this is optional, auxiliary secretary Maureen Starke said. Tea and coffee will be served with cakes, slices and sandwiches and the Bill Pearson trio will provide music. The event, in the Waikanae Bowl- ing Club, is a fundraiser for the auxiliary, which raises funds for Kapiti cancer patients. Our aim is to provide patient and family support items and services, which hospital and hospice budgets can not stretch to cover, Mrs Starke said. Recent donations include a $10,000 donation to the driving ser- vice of Wellington s Cancer Society. Specialist equipment worth more than $3500 was funded for Kenepuru Hospital and bags and stands were made available for the Kapiti Cancer Society s SunSmart umbrellas. Winter High Tea, June 12, 2pm till 5pm, Waikanae Bowling Club, Te Moana Rd. Tickets, $20. Phone 904 6598 for information.
