Tomorrow's Love  —  
Tomorrow's Love was a Timaru rock group which featured Ron Jenkins (Guitar), Derek Allan (Organ), Max Fletcher (Bass) and Kevin Toneycliffe (Drums).

 
 

Tomorrow's Love were told their material was too far out and so they added some hit parade covers and found a manager in Australian DJ Keith Ashton, who was in Hamilton on contract with radio station 1XH.  Ashton checked out the band's new image and sound and signed the boys to his regular dance at Hamilton venues, Old Folks Hall in Clarence Street and at Fairfield Park Hall.  They replaced The Sound Investment and Swellsfoot Assembly with an edgy, up to date set in front of ever-swelling crowds.  They weren't the only out of town group in the city that year.  Larry's Rebels, The Velvet Underground (from Tauranga), The La De Da's, The Underdogs (on a tour organised by The Breakaways' Bari Gordon) and The Pleazers featured at the Starlight and Frankton Town Hall and toured the Waikato.
