A gentle kayak around Opopo Bay at the bot- tom end took an unex- pected turn when a shark joined in. Wayne McCann was initially worried but he soon realised the shark was just after some company and the two enjoyed the calm waters. The encounter left Mr McCann, who was also fishing off his kayak, wondering what all the fuss was about with sharks. He says it was posing no threat. He was neither interested in me nor any fish I was catch- ing. 29 WAIHEKE MARKETPLACE, JUNE 15, 2011 NEWS Sunday Jam keeps on rollin' Feeling blue: Perfect jam session magic moment with Blues singer Kippa jamming with songwriter Soulsista. By JEROME GAVELLE After almost 20 years of exist- ence the iconic Sunday Jam has found a new venue at the Bay at Matiatia. In the last three years, the jam has moved from the Onetangi Beachfront Cafe ´t o The Rocks in Ostend and Malones in Surfdale before reaching the gateway to Wai- heke at the beginning of May. Well known musician and jam MC Mano Pratt welcomes new and regular musicians to get up on stage and play live music -- on their own or together. He says the venue changes have been motivated by differ- ent issues but he likes The Bay as a new venue. I love the space -- it is huge, and the stage is big enough to welcome bands, he says. The Bay manager Peter Byrne says he is happy to host the live music Sunday event at the newly refurbished venue. We think it is a fabulous, regular leisure afternoon event. Singer-songwriter Mel Davis, also known as Soulsista, says she loves the new venue. It s very classy. We need to keep on support- ing the jam as it s a necessity for the island. It gives us musicians the opportunity to play with each other on a casual and fun basis, feel the love, and to reconnect with each other, Ms Davis says. Singer Billy Curreen has been a regular visitor since the jam started and confesses he loves it. The jam is great. Venue managers need to advertise it and dedicate the Sunday after- noon and evening just to it. Another regular jam per- former, blues singer Richard Cannon, also known as Kippa, didastintasjamMCin1992at Malones before guitar player Chuck Chapman took over, and then Mano Pratt. Everything is changing on Waiheke but it is good to know the jam still goes on whatever the venue. It has got to stay and I wish more people from Auck- land would come to listen or perform, Kippa says. This is a wish Mr Burns would also like to come true. If we get good support from locals, we might encourage people from Auckland to come too. They just have to hop on the ferry to listen or perform and then can catch the last Sunday ferry back home, he says. Many musicians at The Bay on June 5 paid tribute to singer- songwriter Harry Nicklin who died on June 2. Mano has been hosting the jam for eight years and says he might contemplate handing over the baton in two years to another host. Meanwhile I am happy to do it. What I like most about it is that every now and then a local, or the odd new musician, shows up and magic happens. The Sunday Jam takes place at The Bay from 5pm to 9pm. Phone 372-8543. Doco on headland shows 2011 exhibit: Radiolaria -- a sculpture by Virginia King. A documentary about the biennial headland -- Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition will have its official premiere at Artworks Theatre on June 24. The film which will be available on DVD was produced and directed by Stephanie Bennett who also produced and directed Ringa Whao: Chris Bailey, which aired on Maori TV. Called Headland: Where Nature Meets Sculpture, the film tells the story of how Sculp- ture on the Gulf was first established in 2003 by the Waiheke Community Art Gallery through interviews with Jackie O Brien, artistic director for the first three shows, and founding benefactors Sue Fisher and Graham Guthrie. It includes the chal- lenges faced by the artists and chief installer Geoff Goss, his crew and volunteers, while instal- ling sculptures for this year s outdoor exhibition. The film features the sculptors talking about their works. Inter- viewees include Chris Bailey, Ali Bramwell, Virginia King, David McCracken, Christian Nicholson, Kazu Naka- gawa, Brett Oakes, Denis O Connor, Phil Price, Marcus Tatton and Jeff Thomson. The curators who selected the sculptures for the 2011 exhibition also get to tell about the processes of choosing the works and their selections for the prizes. Tickets are $55 per person with proceeds going to Waiheke Com- munity Art Gallery. Drinks and nibbles will be available at the gallery from 6.30pm with the screening at 7.30pm.
