Epic trip, epic challenges

Tamahere Brothers Sam and Eli Thomas are well into their epic Vietnamese journey and fundraising effort for prostate cancer.

The pair set out last Monday (April 27) on two 50cc scooters to ride the length of Vietnam – more than 2500km of third world roads.

The challenges came quickly. “0 meters, first breakdown of the day and it’s not even 6am, oil dipstick snapped and dropped into crankcase. Aka half the motor had to come off now,” they posted on their Facebook page.

Local blues musician Darcy Perry is getting behind prostate cancer awareness campaign Blue September with every track he’s ever recorded.

His career as a blues artist began 11 years ago with the independently released CD Blues 4 Dad, dedicated to his father who died from cancer in 2002.

Now he’s releasing his entire back catalogue, including two previously unreleased live albums and a new album that’s been five years in the making on the same day he talks locally about prostate cancer.
