In late June, Auckland funk and soul outfit Tahuna Breaks flew to the UK to start a whirlwind tour, a two-week run that included a slot at England’s Glastonbury festival and the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
Before the band set off, they picked up one of our sound recorders so that they could commit behind-the-scenes action from their tour to tape.
Here’s Tahuna Breaks’ Marty Greentree, Jonny McClean, James Winkle, Adam Fuhr, Tim Gillon and Jono Sawyer with their European Tour Diary.
