Howdy folks, due to COVID-19 Electro Funk unfortunately will have to be cancelled. Waxstar Touring are gutted by this decision, but thanks so much for your support it’s really appreciated
in these trying times.

Funky grooves are on the menu at Totara St. Electro Funk is a mash up of funk house, minimum deep techno and homegrown funk infused beats.

Bring your dance moves, good vibes and Christmas cheer to the first ever Electro Funk Party in the Bay of Plenty.

Massive electro grooves will unleash the perfect Christmas party on Friday December 9, and with this line up you just know there is no escape from a good time.

Then he co-wrote and produced KORA’s album KORA, it immediately went to No.1 on the Official NZ charts and has had double platinum sales.
