NZ Idol 1: Web-site & CD for Luke

Submitted by Loyal on 17 October, 2005 - 9:52am

When I was talking to Luke at Upper Hutt Cossie Club, he told me about his new web-site - www.lukewhaanga.co.nz

When I asked him if there was a chance of him having a CD out, as some time, he said YES!:)  He has a CD coming out in 4 months!  Don't know if it will be a single or album though, forgot to ask! :D

I certainly look forward to this, he's a great guy, singer and performer.  Glad to hear he is working on continuing with his singing career! :)

It's great to see that Luke

It's great to see that Luke is doing so well, I must get a hold of the cd too. He will always be my Idol despite the fact that he didnt win, and its great to see that he remains the same down-to-earth person that he was before. I see him around Stokes Valley a lot and he is just the same. The website is cool too!!

You are on my wavelength

You are on my wavelength suziqt ;)

I must play his single again :D:

I sooooooo wanted Luke to win Idol - he will always be my Idol - he was my first :D:

Well, I'll reply to this

Well, I'll reply to this message - such a choice !;)

Agree with you so much.  Love Luke and still support him and look forward to hearing more from him all the time.  A great guy, really good singer and true entertainer!

I'm still 'Loyal' to Ben - but to Luke too!:)

You certainly must get a copy of his CD!  Wonder how the sales have been for it.

Always think of a big smile when I think of Luke!:D

Just had a look at Luke's

Just had a look at Luke's web-site.  It's been changed a bit and updated.  Number of really good pictures there, of him at places he's performed lately.

Also news that he hopes to have a CD out this year!

Luke certainly has continued to look forward and continue to do what he loves - singing and entertaining!:)

Are you going Loyal?

Are you going Loyal?

No I'm not.  Last time I

No I'm not.  Last time I want there it was a Sunday afternooon.  It's quite a long trip for me, and not easy on a Friday - especially with the bad conditions around at the moment - and work the next day!

 Like to think someone from here will though, and tell us about it.

Luke at Cossie Club, Upper

Luke at Cossie Club, Upper Hutt tomorrow.  Really recommend anyone going who lives down Wellington way.  He really is very good to listen to and watch!:)

Good chance to hear his single 'live' too I'd imagine!:)

See he's a guest judge at Talent Search at North Shore Shopping Centre on 16th July!

Delighted with my Luke CD

Delighted with my Luke CD that has arrived!:)

Fantasic job - he's written the music and lyrics and as well as singing, plays guitar and lead guitar!

Love the packaging too - including the signing of it!:)

Good luck with it Luke - wish you every success!:D

Luke says he's still

Luke says he's still recording and has a second single underway! :)

Great to be able to keep up with what he'd doing - and that he's willing to keep in touch! 

Shows what an assett having a web-site is! :D

Luke's CD came today - Woop

Luke's CD came today - Woop woop :D 

It's beautiful - very reggae - Luke wrote it and plays lead guitar - it's so polished and professional - I love it - had to take UB40 out to play it and it would go well on an album of theirs :)  I was hoping that Sitting Inside my Head might be on there as well - but I have that on video :D

It just happened that my daughter brought my mother's day present over when I got home from work today - that overshadowed Lukes song........ she had written and recorded a song for me - about me......... man it's beautiful *cries* 

Really looking forward to

Really looking forward to getting my copy!:)

Doing well Luke is - one of the few  'Idols' to record and release a single! :)  Good luck to him with it!  Wonder if he's managed to get any radio play down in Wellington.

What a very special Mothers Day present - that's certainly something you'll treasure!:D

Loving the CD cover pic

Loving the CD cover pic Luke.!  I'll have to buy that now then, won't I ;) to go with my Ben and Rosita stuff.  Must get Nik's work too.  I've got the Single and Album of Ben and Rosita, got to get your Single, and Nik's and I just wish that gorgeous diva woman, Sela, would hurry up and come out with something hot now too.

Keep it going with your music hard out Luke and Kia Kaha.  You rock!

Great to have an ex-Idol that we can actually write to, too, and have respond to us.

wow, about time  - thanks
