Kiwi Bandwagon - Intro
Take an old school Mini and a kitted out fire truck, drive the length of the country during New Zealand Music Month, throw in all kinds of people, places and parties, then mix it all in with an epic Kiwi soundtrack to create a road trip film like no other.
FOUR Live will be following the journey of Mark, Nate and Dre as they travel from Cape Reinga to Bluff, attending gigs, concerts and talking to musicians and locals.
1. The Story Behind the Mini
"Nate's friend gave the mini to him in Oamaru, as he thought he would be able to do something cool with it. Well, we drove it up from Oamaru to Auckland last August, but then we seized the engine. It then sat in our garage for 4 months while we were overseas at the end of last year, and now with Kiwi Bandwagon about to kick off, we needed it back on the road - so we re-built the engine ourselves (took it out, pulled it apart, put it back in - while reading a book we got out of the library that told us how to do it). Then we scraped the paint back, sprayed it black, and Otis painted it for us.
"Now we have it ready to roll, along with Dre's fire truck, through the country. "
Be watching FOUR Live from 4:30 weeknights to follow the guys' progress through New Zealand Music Month!
