Tamati Coffey was working the crowd (including a number of familiar faces) at his partner’s and his bar in Rotorua on Saturday. Two excellent singers helped bring in the crowd and it was great to see such a large female following. The bar is undergoing an expansion and we wish them all the best. As well as standing in the local Maori seat for Labour at the next election, he has just been appointed a member of a charitable board responsible for allocating an annual $3 million to local causes.
