Rhombus Live, Batucada Sound Machine, Rhian Sheehan and Module come together for “Steaming for a Cause” at Galatos on June 3rd 2006 in association with Daimler Chrysler & Hofmann Presents.

Steaming for a Cause brings us some of New Zealand's finest musicians and aims to raise awareness of Cancer among the 20-30 year old community of New Zealand. Through celebration, we support those who have, who are or who will be affected by Cancer.

Every dollar in profit generated by Steaming for a Cause, supported by Daimler Chrysler will go to providing better care, better research, and better opportunities for those of our friends affected by Cancer.

Rhombus Live have already firmly established themselves as a leading contender in both the local and international music scene. Rhombus represents a constantly evolving tour de force and guest artists bring their own flavours to add to the mix. Each performance is full of positive energy with the ability to engage their audience is second to none.
Joining Rhombus in their live line up are musicians Darren Mathiassen (drums) and Steve Gallagher (keys).

Batucada Sound Machine are forging new paths in global music. This bunch of 15 mad musicians boasts members from Chile, Brazil, the UK and NZ - and as the numbers suggest, the sound they create is truly massive. Featuring an all star horn section, a 7 piece percussion line-up, MC KMS (aka Bling), the unstoppable Rota Barrington on drums and a host of unmentionable others, BSM cooks up a wickedly high-octane brew of latino groove, Brazilian beats and raw hiphop.

Module draws on the roots of his strong classical music theory and live-band experience to produce an organic style of electronica that is played and not programmed.
Module has performed as a musician in The Black Seeds, Fly My Pretties, Rhombus and Rhian Sheehan. Being requested by top New Zealand artists to play in these groups is recognition of Module's natural musical talent.

Rhian Sheehan is one of New Zealand’s finest electronica/cinematic composers….release 3 albums and touring around the globe with his live band and VJ’s. Rhian shows are full of multimedia with big screen visuals and 100% live electronica. Rhian Sheehan re-creates and translates the lush atmospheres and beautiful sound-scapes (and big beats) found in his albums to a stunning multimedia event.

Featuring a MASSIVE line-up with Rhombus Live, Batucada Sound Machine, Module, Rhian Sheehan, huge VJ set-up and more to be confirmed.

All proceeds will go towards funding the work of the Cancer Society.
