Band to bring community together on Australia Day

Sophia ConstantineNorth West Telegraph

Local band Kaadence are busy preparing music for an exciting performance at the Town of Port Hedland’s Australia Day event.

The band were formed in 2014 by a group of like-minded local musicians who saw a need for funk, soul, pop, reggae, old school and top 40 music in the region.

The band’s five members performed at the Port Hedland Civic Centre in May as part of their contribution to the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

Band member Stanley Maurirere said Kaadence enjoyed bringing the community together, using their music as a vehicle to go down a more positive path.

“We are trying to provide a type of change in the way we think,” he said.

“Our music is very soothing, it’s a good coping mechanism for the youth. It gives them something to strive to.

Maurirere said the band had done a lot of community events in the past few years, and had been working on incorporating as much Australian music into their Australia Day performance as possible.

He said the group was looking forward to performing this year after receiving positive feedback from a large audience at the event last year.

Kaadence will perform on the main stage at 7.45pm before the fireworks display.
