It was a night of 90s music heaven as young & old reminisced over The Netherland’s most famous musical export The Vengaboys.

The Dutch Euro-Dance group got straight into it as Auckland’s Bruce Mason Centre was like an old school rave event. Originals Kim Sasabone, Denise Post-Van Rijswijk, Robin Pors together with relative newcomer Donny Latupeirissa took the reins partying with the festive Auckland crowd.


Hits like Shala Lala, We’re Going To Ibiza, We Like To Party sent the crowd into a frenzy as most we’re dressed up in costume taking on board the groups fun musical personas, it was almost akin to a Wellington Sevens event.

Sassabone commented “New Zealand, you have a special place in our hearts” as her and Denise Post-Van Rijswijk waved the Kiwi flag around on stage the group closed with Boom, Boom, Boom,Boom and Uncle John From Jamaica ending the evening on a high note. Let’s hope it won’t be another 20 years before they return.
