Whangarei Gigs

Hi everyone,

I will be playing at “Revas On The Waterfront” on Friday 7th of August and “Schnappa Rock” on Saturday 8th of August. Both gigs have a cover charge of $5 and start time for music is 8pm on both nights.


“When Reva and Doug Meredith opened the first Revas in 1976, it was just a little hole-in-the-wall pizza joint in downtown Whangarei. But thanks to Revas legendary hospitality, and her love of delicious food, live music and local art, Revas ‘Pizza Palour’ soon became the meeting place for local musicians, artists, travellers and anyone who appreciated great food, great company and a great time.

“See you at Revas” became the farewell cry as cruising yachts left foreign ports to cross the Southern Ocean. In 1988, the pizza joint became a licensed restaurant in a new premises near the waterfront.

In 1995, Reva and Doug were invited to open Whangarei’s first waterfront restaurant in the new Town Basin development – Revas on the Waterfront was born – and the rest is history.”

Schnappa Rock

“Placed on the shoreline of the picturesque Tutukaka Harbour, the restaurant is a unique Fale style building with ample dining seating and a spacious bar.

Established in 1992 by Pete and Tina Vink, Schnappa Rock is now one of the icons of the community, a place where locals mix and mingle with international tourists and the Kiwi holiday makers, who flock to the area to experience the world renowned Poor Knights diving waters, and classic New Zealand beaches.”
