Rock out to ChuRisma's charm

A MIX of reggae and funk, ChuRisma are sure to see you finding the dance floor.

With the main line up consisting of New Zealanders, band member Robbie Anaru explained the origins of their name.

"It's a Kiwi thing," he said.

"When Kiwi's say 'How's it going bro?' and they say 'Chur'.

"And Risma comes from charisma; it's all good."

Having played on the islands back in the 1980s, Mr Anaru said "it just seemed the right time" to get back together and do what they love.

"I think every musician loves to give a bit of themselves to the audience," he said.

"To make people happy and entertain them; that's what it's all about."

The band is set to perform at the Jubilee Tavern this Friday, followed by two performances at the Reef Gateway Hotel in early July.

Mr Anaru encouraged the community to come on down for a great time.

"Just come along, enjoy the music and get your chur on," he said. 

"The two guitarists in the band, they're just awesome.

"You're in for a treat."
