Aaron Tokona Tribute Buzz
CAIRO KNIFE FIGHT, WETA, AHORIBUZZ
An all-star lineup of Aotearoa artists performed together in 2020 in tribute to the incredibly talented Aaron Tokona, songwriter and guitar hero of Weta, AHoriBuzz, Cairo Knife Fight, Bongmaster and much more, who sadly passed away on Saturday 20th June,
2020 of a heart attack.
Aaron was a friend of Jason Peters (director at Waxstar Touring) and Jason said it was an absolute honour to set up the tribute shows around NZ in celebration of Tokona’s spirit, his amazing music and to help support his Whanau in a time of sadness, loss and shock.
A small army of significant local music figures including Jason Kerrison & Clint Harris (Opshop / The Feelers), Gareth Price & Tosh Graham (Semi Lemon Kola), Jason Peters & Francis Hunt (Pumpkinhead), Jason Faafoi (Stereobus), Joel Shadbolt (L.A.B), Francis Kora (Kora), Booga Beazley (Head like A Hole), Alex Ferrier & Sam Holdem (Skinny Hobs), Kara Gordon aka Jimi Kara (Fly My Pretties) plus many more jammed out the bangers from Weta, AHoriBuzz & Cairo Knife Fight.
Rock in peace Mr Aaron Tokona xx
