Sport Hawke s Bay have developed a mobile app for
those on the go and those that want to stay in touch
with sports events in the region.
The uptake in Smart Phones has been signi cant
and Sport Hawke s Bay Commercial Manager Kevin
Murphy says the Activator App, dedicated to sport
will make it easier for people to keep active and keep
up to date with what s going on in sport. "Those
that are active through sport are mobile by nature,
therefore it makes sense that we provide them with
a tool that they can access on the go. It s also a great
tool to promote the many sport events going on in
the region," says Kevin.
The app has information about all the recreational
facilitates in the region including parks and reserves, swimming and tness
centres, playgrounds, sportsgrounds and trail maps. It s been developed
with smart technology that identi es facilities close to your location via
GPS. "It s really simple to use and we know that more and more people are
using mobile devices to access information.
The app also promotes the activity areas of Sport Hawke s Bay such as
Active Families, Green Prescription and Work t. It also lists upcoming
sports events in the region, a club directory and will list the winter and
summer sport draws. Kevin believes Sport Hawke s Bay is the rst regional
sports organisation to develop an App. "We are highly regarded nationally
in our role of delivering innovation in sport and recreation and this is a
further example," he says.
The Sport Hawke s Bay app is available in both the Android and Apple

From party tracks
to horror themes
Stranger than fiction: Illevilhater, aka Rob Kent.
By CLAIRE HAMLIN
With three albums' worth of songs calling to be
recorded, Napier musician Rob Kent, also
known as Illevilhater, has divided the songs
into groups, with the first album Maggot com-
plete and available online.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Raice Han-
nay at Voodoo Creation, the first single and
video from the album -- Maniac Maggot --ison
YouTube. Kent, who works with bands Killer
Theory and Gunt, said Maggot is a blend of
metal, hip-hop, pop and hard rock.
This first album is all the party tracks,
influenced by artists like Marilyn Manson,
Korn and Eminem,'' he said.
The next one, Dark Card, will be the horror-
themed songs and the third will be named
Change is Constant, which will be all talk, real-
Some of the songs are taken from events in
my life but a lot of the content is fiction.''
Napier born and bred, Kent began learning
guitar at an early age, got his first electric
guitar at the age of 13 and began songwriting at
17. Nowadays, it seems, he just can't stop.
While he has had drum lessons and played
bass in a couple of bands, guitar is his first love
and it's only in recent years that he has become
That came about when I was in a band called
Subhuman,'' he said.
We didn't have a singer and couldn't find
one. One night I started singing along to a song
and that was it -- I became vocalist.
I recorded my first song as Illevilhater in
2005 and that was it for a while, but hanging
out with Raice in the past couple of years has
sparked it up again and it's great having the
ability to do it. With my first material I did all
the mixing and mastering and it's not a good
idea to do your own stuff I don't think, so it's
good to have a producer.''
The 14-track Maggot is available as a free
download through Voodoo Creation and hard
copies of the album will be available for a gold
coin donation from Pin Kushion (formerly
Trendez, in Emerson Street, Napier).
Illevilhater will play a gig in February along-
side Killer Theory, Genocide and Smokestack
Napier's Municipal Theatre has turned 100 and is
commemorating the occasion with a year-long cel-
ebration of events, shows, exhibitions, compe-
titions, specials and activities.
The history of the theatre dates back to early
1912 when leading Australian architect William
Pitt designed a sophisticated Italian Renaissance
theatre, however it was completely destroyed in
the 1931 earthquake.
Following extensive planning and construction,
the 1154 seat capacity art deco-inspired Municipal
Theatre rose majestically from the rubble,'' said
Rebecca Ainsworth from Tourism Services.
Client Relations Manager Ian Reid, who had
been with the Municipal Theatre for more than 20
years, was looking forward to a year of festivities
to celebrate the centenary milestone.
Over the years we have seen some wonderful
developments at the theatre and I'm delighted to
be involved with celebrating 100 years.
We've planned a full calendar of events and an
exciting celebration programme for 2013 as we
take a walk down memory lane to celebrate the
Municipal Theatre's wonderfully rich heritage.''
Mr Reid said the programme features dance,
concerts, musicals, classical music and comedy,
including Michael Houstoun's Tempest'' pres-
ented by Chamber Music New Zealand.
