You.Me.Dancing - Live Music Event Wanaka

'You. Me. Dancing!' was a live music event Wanaka which took place on Saturday 12th March 2011. This free community event ran from between 12pm to 2.30am and took place at Wanaka HQ (now Waterbar) followed by Mint bar after 9pm. It brought in a wide range of both visitors and locals to enjoy great music and fantastic company whilst having a good dance!

Music was broadcast live on Wanaka Beats 107.3, as well as over the internet through www.shoutcast.com.

'You. Me. Dancing!'  was an idea that Wanaka Beats performers 'Pennylicks' and 'Civilian Sol' came up with, based around the concept of showcasing local musical talent live on the radio in a public place. With the success of the event, 'You. Me. Dancing!' looks to become a regular slot on the Wanaka calendar.

Performers included:

Electric Black (Mt Aspiring)           DJ Cupboard
7.6 (Hawea)                                  DJ Dolecheque
Elliot Steven                                  DJ Mox
Robbie & Mikey                             Pennylicks
Mathias the piano man                 Civilian Sol
Ali & Roserio                                 Anika & Danny
Fi & Martine
