Napier was treated to the musical stylings of New Zealand's favourite operatic trio last night.

On one of the early stops of their "On Another Note" tour, Sol3 Mio wowed a packed audience at Taradale's Pettigrew Green Arena.

For tenor brothers Pene and Amitai Pati and their baritone cousin Moses Mackay, the tour will double as the debut of their new album of the same name.

They presented material from their new album and favourites from their debut album, along with beloved classics, all delivered with their trademark wit and humour and the larger-than-life personalities that have seen them become superstars home and overseas.


Following the month-long nationwide tour the group will begin a two-year hiatus to focus on individual projects.

In February Mr Mackay told Hawke's Bay Today: "We are excited, but it's a bit bitter sweet also being the last tour for the next couple of years".

"When we come back we'll be just as good, if not better."
