Kicking off with his hero Elvis Presley's song 'That's Alright,' the late Prince Tui Teka delivers a classic performance in this TVNZ-filmed variety show (one of three specials). The Yandall Sisters back-up on the smoky, Vegas-inspired set. Tui sings his hit 'E Ipo' with wife Missy, and they pay tribute to the song’s Māori lyricist Ngoi (‘Poi-E’) Pewhairangi. The songs are peppered with warmth, humour and poi action (led by a young Pita Sharples), as Tui Teka confirms his reputation as one of Aotearoa's great entertainers. The classy Bernie Allen-led band includes legendary guitarist Tama Renata.
Ladies and gentlemen, presenting one of the most outstanding entertainers in New Zealand. As a matter of fact he’s been out standing over there for the past five minutes.– Missy Teka
Band: Tama Renata, Tewi Teka, Brownie Kapua, Stuart Pearce, Jimmy Warren, Joanna Spiers, Brian Biddick, Peter O'Gara, Arthur Cameron, Mark Spiers
