Puree to Liven up Cathedral Square in Final Week of SummerTimes™

25 February 2003

SummerTimes™ FREE Friday Lunchtime Concert, Cathedral Square, Friday 28th February, 12.15pm to 1.45pm.

The SummerTimes™ Lunchtime Concert Series ends this Friday 28th February with a guaranteed high energy performance by popular city band Puree.

Kelvin Mallard is band leader and guitarist. "We’re aiming to liven up The Square’, he says, " And we’re going to keep it upbeat with crowd favourites and a few numbers to sing along to".

Puree specialize in a blend of top 40 hits from the last three decades, along with funk, disco and pop classics. "We try to appeal to the masses and play music that people like to hear" says Kelvin.

Shane Bolingford plays percussion, and the trademark voice behind the band belongs to Dominique Mallard.

Married to Kelvin for seven years, Dominique’s voice was ‘discovered’ on their wedding day when the couple put together a band to entertain their guests and Dominique got up on stage. The rest, as they say, is history, and the band have played a huge number of local gigs for the last five years, with a regular spot at The Bedrock Bar in the Startimes Backpackers in Cathedral Square.

Dominique’s voice is powerful and also flexible enough to take on a huge variety of styles. Last year she presented a showstopping performance on televisions ‘Showstoppers’ where she joined the final 12 winning contestants.

With recent shows at the Canterbury Wine and Food Festival, and another planned at the Waipara Wine and Food Festival in March, the Puree stay busy bringing their powerhouse performance to the people of Canterbury.
