Hi Robyn
They were awesome – very happy
Kim Pearce

Band was excellent. I would use them again if ever back in queenstown. Nigel is a great bloke also.
Ian Swann

Hi Robyn
Yep, the guys were great, no issues at all, they even were happy to set-up a second mike for us to use during the speeches which was fantastic.
We would highly recommend them to anybody else who is looking for a good, fun and interactive band that was flexible and easy to deal with.
Gareth Thomas

HI Pete
Yes the perfomance was absolutely fabulous. We wished we could had hours more fantastic music and and dancing but the end of the evening came too soon. It was wonderful and we will be sure to let the band know directly too. Arranging the band was super easy and all very professional.
Many thanks
