Dinner on the Lake

Julie and I had a great time last night. We were fortunate to be invited to perform on the Lakeland Queen, which is a paddle boat that takes cruises out on Lake Rotorua. There were an estimated 150 people on board for a two-hour cruise that included dinner. I performed a couple of close-up sets around the tables and then Julie and I did a 30-minute show for the kids.

If you’re looking for something different the next time you’re in Rotorua, then I highly recommend taking the Lakeland Queen. The food is awesome, the staff are friendly and go out of their way to make sure that you leave happy at the end of the night. The scenery out on the lake is amazing, especially if you take a dinner cruise, as then you have the added bonus of seeing the sunset while you’re out on the water.

So, The Lakeland Queen is an absolute must the next time you’re in Rotorua.  I guarantee that you’ll have an awesome time.  And If you’re looking for somewhere different to hold a wedding, birthday party or corporate event, they also hire the boat out for private functions.  Their website can be found here.

We’ve just arrived back from Taupo, where we performed a 40-minute show as part of the Guy Fawkes Fireworks Extravaganza. And an extravaganza it certainly was. We had an audience of an estimated 5,000 and we shared the bill with singing group The Mermaids, who sounded awesome. But, of course, the highlight of the evening […]


Up Close and Personal with an Endangered Species

We were down in Rotorua for Queens Birthday weekend, and there’s a place down there that I believe everyone should visit at least once.  And once you’ve been, you’ll definitely want to go again. The place is called Wingspan, and it was set up for the conservation of New Zealand’s birds of prey – especially the New Zealand Falcon. […]
