Think vinyl records, bright colours, go-go dancers and knee high boots. Yes, it’s the 1960’s and Sandy Edmonds is New Zealand’s first pop superstar of the TV age.

From being plucked out of the audience at The Beatles concert in Auckland, being signed by Zodiac Records and managed by Phil Warren, Edmonds was thrust into fame achieving widespread popularity after singing just one song in a local pub. It wasn’t long until Edmonds was schmoozing with the likes of Marianne Faithfull, Mick Jagger, the Eagles, David Bowie and The Rolling Stones. At the height of her popularity, Edmonds was New Zealand’s most recognizable teen idol and music sensation. But almost overnight she disappeared.

What happened to Sandy and where did she go?

For three nights only, singing sensation Jessie Cassin is Sandy Edmonds in 'Sure to Rise', a come-back gig of sorts, to set the record straight. Set amongst the music of the time and featuring the songs such as 'Come and See Me', 'Day Tripper', 'La Bamba', 'Summer In The City' and 'Daylight Saving Time' made popular by Edmonds, Cassin tells the story of Edmonds with insightful anecdotes, musical entertainment, and sheer joy. Supported by three piece band, along with go-go dancers capturing the energy of C’mon (New Zealand’s Top of the Pops in the late 60’s), we have a sense of the time, place, and incredible intrigue. As well as the NZ legacy that is Sandy Edmonds.
