Full moon prelude

FIJI-BORN Australian music act Jay Hoad's had audiences captivated and mystified with his act during the Uprising Beach Resort's Full Moon Party on Saturday evening.

The cool winds and crashing waves provided an excellent backdrop to Jay Hoad's solo act as he showed off his talent of using more than one musical instrument at once.

With the serene beat filling the air, fans both local and overseas crowded in small groups, some even huddled around bonfires.

According to organiser and Uprising Resort general manager James Pridgeon, this was a prelude to the Corona Uprising Music Festival to be held in November.

"We have Jay Hoad out there who has been a big part of our music festival for the last four years.

"He has come every year to support our festival.

"Jay was actually born here in Fiji, so Fiji has a real solid place in his heart," he said.

"To those who were here last year, we can say that this year, 2014 is going to be bigger and better with some of our support coming in from some of our key industry stakeholders."
