Koi Boys to shine at the Pacific Business Trust Awards

The Kiwi trio, first discovered on The Voice Australia in 2016 will be ditching the sun on the Gold Coast, where they’re based, and crossing the ditch to the country of their origin for the 2018 National Pacific Business Trust Awards at the Historic Eden Park on June 22. Danny Faifai, Kevin Keepa and Ngahere “Nuz” Ngatai will shine a light on Pacific Entertainment as The Koi Boys. Purchase your tickets before they sell out

 

 

 

Headline Act the Koi Boys made their charismatic first appearance on The Voice Australia in 2016.

 

Known for their energy, character, enthusiasm and genre-spanning talent, the Koi Boys are a hit among fans of all ages.

 

The award-winning trio won highest selling album at the 2017 New Zealand Vodafone Music Awards and are back in New Zealand to take the 11th National Pacific Business Trust Awards by storm.

 

The evening will also include other exciting live Pacific entertainment, a delicious contemporary Pacific menu, beverages and a black tie awards ceremony.

 

Other entertainment, without giving away too much, includes music, dance, drums, fire and song. With a focus on collaboration the awards bring together a feast for the senses, combining the best of Pacific entertainment with a few surprises.

 

Senior chef James Raukete has designed a bespoke contemporary Pacific menu, connecting traditional food and vibrant culture for your enjoyment.

 

The three beautifully presented courses on offer celebrate the delicious food and flavours of the Pacific.

 

 

Following the official awards ceremony, a DJ will be helping the crowd get their groove on with some lit tunes.

 

Ticket prices include admission to the awards ceremony, entertainment, beverages and a delicious three-course meal. Individual tickets are $120 per person, and a table of 10 is $1200, which can be purchased online.
