The Toner Sisters with the King of The Rockers Mr Tom Sharplin.

A little bit country & a little bit rock 'n' roll!

The Toner Sisters were raised on Country Music performing with mum and dad as The Toner Family. They each eventually took their craft in other directions and each has had amazing musical careers.

Long-time admirers of one another’s work, Lynne, Celine and Adrienne have finally come full circle, together in a collaboration that both excites them and rejuvenates their love of Country Music. Together they perform songs that shaped their lives and brought them to where they are today. Their charming ‘onstage antics’, big voices, mesmerising harmonies and sisterly love will leave you feeling very much part of The Toner Family.

Lynne was the first ever winner of the NZCMA Entertainer of the Year and NZ representative on ‘Singer For Asia’ in Hong Kong, Celine has been a guest of the late George Hamilton IV on the Grand Ole Opry, Nashville Tennessee and Nashville’s International Fanfare. She has also graced the stages of Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Concert Hall and Chinese National Theatre to name a few.

Adrienne was the youngest ever to appear on NZ’s popular TV Show ‘That’s Country’ setting her on a musical path that has seen her perform on various Shows and Tours to the present day including the fabulous NZ Show ‘Warbirds’.

Together, their list of achievements in Country Music is second to none. Collectively they were regulars on TVNZ’s ‘THAT’S COUNTRY’, have opened for Ricky Scaggs, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Bros, Kenny Rogers, Ricky Scaggs, George Hamilton IV, Freddy Fender, Rod Stewart, Ronan Keaton and much more. Each has toured nationally & internationally and have now come full circle... Take a piece of them home with you in their brand new EP ‘Full Circle... The Acoustic Session’.

Their ‘Special Guest’ is none other than NZ Rock n Roll Icon Mr Tom Sharplin. Tom created a rock 'n' roll revival in the 70’s when he recorded 5 singles and toured the country several times with the likes of Johnny Devlin, Maria Dallas, Nash Chase & Angela Ayres. Among many awards Tom and his band have picked up, is the 1980 NZ Group of the Year Award. Individually, Tom was awarded the Variety Artist Club's ultimate award The Benny in 2002.

Tom went on to form a few different Bands over the years until The Cadillacs lead by Ray Eade on Bass guitar, with whom he remains working with today. In 2006, he toured New Zealand, from one end to the other in The Best of the Best tour alongside Johnny Devlin, Ray Columbus, Sharon O'Neil, Larry Morris and Shane.

Tom is currently President of the Variety Artists Club and is also an active participant in the Variety Club, a charity for children who are sick or have disabilities.

The Toner Sisters with Tom Sharplin promise you a ‘wow show’ from start to finish. Backed by a fantastic 4 piece band you will laugh, sing, & dance the night away!
