Hausboi to Feature in ZFM Classics Celebrations

The very popular PNG band will be in town to help celebrate ZFM Classics 10th birthday. The celebration will be a week long event beginning on the 24th of June to the 2nd of July.

Hausboi, a household name in the PNG music industry, will arrive on the 24th of June and will perform on the same day at the multipurpose hall. This will be a family event with freestyle entertainment followed by supporting bands like Kekene, Sharzy, Sisiva, Third World Crew, Sisirikiti and the actual Hausboi concert.

"ZFM Classics uses these sorts of event to promote music so that we not only listen to the music on radio but also get to see these musicians perform live on stage," said ZFM Classics senior staff member Samson Saeni, known to many as Sharzy. "The Island Touch Down concerts hosts local popular bands in Honiara so people can see. But this tour is our first international event."

Saeni stated that party people will get their chance on the 29th and the 30th of June at the Waterfront nightclub to see Hausboi perform live. ZFM will then celebrate their 10th birthday on the 1st of July in true island style.

"The CHM manager was in Honiara recently to asses the security situation in the capital. He was astounded when kids were hanging around late at night near the multipurpose-hall area. He said in PNG nobody gets out of their homes after 6 pm. So the manager is very optimistic," says Samson Saeni.
