Big Mountain set to rock Port Moresby

American reggae/pop band Big Mountain is in Port Moresby and ready to perform for the second time for fans at the Lamana Gold Club on Saturday May 14.

The band arrived in the country this week and performed on Thursday night for Lae fans at the Ascots Nightclub. They arrived in Moresby from Lae this afternoon.

Big Mountain is known for its cover version of Peter Frampton's "Baby, I Love Your Way," which became a Top 10 hit single in the U.S. in early 1994.

The band is excited to be back in the country after performing for the first time in 2013 and looking forward to performing again on stage in front of the Moresby fans.

Lead vocals Joaquin "Quino" McWhinney said it’s great to be back in Moresby and they’re excited and looking forward to the show.

Quino said it’s going to be a great show even better than the last time they performed in Moresby.

“We want to bring an important message through our music and performance and give the fans something of who we are and what our music is about.

“The fans should expect a blend of music from the past and from our new album as well.

“We invite everyone to come out and support us and enjoy our music and I feel excited to see how they will react to hit song Kalapana Way,” Quino said.

Tickets are on sale at Lamana Hotel's reception with the early bird tickets sold out. Tickets are selling for K100 Arena, Balcony K250 and The Temple K350 with limited tickets available.

Lamana Hotel assistant manager Jacquie Simons confirmed that tickets will also be sold at the gate.
