Always a good time only at the Feilding 4326388AA 4328101AA Music man: Tony McLaughlin, creator and organiser of the Party in the Paddock concert, focuses on the next generation of musicians. Photo: SAM BAKER By LAURA WALTERS Party time Local musician Tony McLaughlin has played as far afield as Geneva and London, but the Manawatu music scene and young talent is where he wants to focus his attention now. McLaughlin, who was originally from Palmerston North, went overseas in the 1970s, and spent most of his adult life away from New Zealand. About 10 years ago he came home after working around Europe and playing gigs on the side. Since then he had made a point of nurturing up-and-comers, including his sons Scott and Connor. McLaughlin went as far as creating a rehearsal room at his Kairanga home where young bands and soloists can jam. His drive was his passion for helping young musicians reach their potential, he said. And it was this drive which created McLaughlin's brain baby'', Party in the Paddock. This year would be the third time the biannual concert had been run. McLaughlin put up his Lockwood Rd property, and the funds, to host an out- door concert that showcased the best of Manawatu's talent. Underpinning the whole thing is the idea of giving the young kids an opportunity.'' McLaughlin said it was hard to make it in the music world, and it was important to have an education to fall back on. However, it was important for young musicians to give it a good go. It's a tough road. People can make money out of it, but very few do.'' While the industry posed challenges for young musicians, they were not a reason to be shy, he said. But don't hold back . . . It's about talent and opportunity.'' McLaughlin said a number of the young musicians performing at next month's Party in the Paddock were planning to pursue a career in music, with some already studying music at university in Wellington. The jazz artist said it would be great if any of the kids he worked with made a go out of their music, even if it was not one of his sons. I sometimes regret that I didn't focus 100 per cent on music,'' McLaughlin said. However, he said it was not about him any more. I loved every moment of the music. But it's about the next generation.'' The versatile musician, who would also be taking to the stage at Party in the Paddock, said putting on the con- cert, and helping out aspiring musicians, took up a lot of his spare time. Sometimes I think what the hell am I thinking?' '' McLaughlin arranged the stage, sound system, entertainment, and facilities for the show, as well as run- ning a chainsaw and home heating business in Palmerston North. It's always a bit stressful.'' But he said he would not have it any other way. In previous years 800 to 900 people have turned up to the family concert in his back paddock, and those staying overnight brought campervans and tents. A supervised swimming pool would be available to children under 12, there would be toilet facilities, and of course a real mix of music. The wonderful thing on the day is the youngest performer is 13-years-old, and the oldest is closer to 70 years,'' he said. McLaughlin said the idea was to make an affordable event for the whole family, which exhibited musical talent in the area, and helped out a good cause. This year the profits from ticket sales would go to Arohanui Hospice in Palmerston North. I think, like many families in the Manawatu, I have recently seen the fantastic work the hospice does, and the level of care they give to people in their last days. It's very humbling.'' McLaughlin encouraged people to bring a picnic, or their barbecue, and relax with their friends and family. Party in the Paddock is at 2pm till late on Saturday, February 4, at 104 Lockwood Rd, Kairanga. Tickets are available from Arohanui Hospice Reception, GQ Clothing, Jolt Hairdressing, Harts, and Beggs Music Centre. Space for overnight camping is available. The talent will include The Soul Collective, with Johnny McCormack, Dirt Box Charlie, Uprising, Krytic, Jessie Stratford and Alastair Cartwright, Josh Ellery, Soren Olson, Ignite, Nathaniel Whitelock.
