Testimonials for PME Entertainment Agents
You kiwis are so nice. No one around here ( usa) would follow up like you have done.
Thank you for your email.
They were fantastic! (Retrosonic) They interacted with the crowd, played a good array of songs, and had an amazing vibe! I will be recommending them to everyone 🙂
I would also like to thank you and your team for making this process very seamless and easy - we couldn't have done it without you!
I look forward to working with PME Entertainment in the future!
Thanks for the follow up.
I didn't stay for the performance but met both Mike's. Mike the piano player briefly. But Mike Murane came super early and is such a great person, he helped me even sweep a carpet (vacuum went flat).
When I get feedback from school I'll keep you posted but I imagine they were fantastic, certainly looked the part in the photos I've seen.
Wouldn't hesitate to book them both again and use PME's services. Always reliable :).
Thanks Karen (Mike Murane and Mike Walker for Great Gatsby event)
I just want to give some feedback to you and the team - we are very pleased with your efficiency in returning our emails and you've made this process so smooth. We were quite stressed with our original band cancelling only 5 months out from the wedding so we really appreciate your time and efforts with helping us find another vendor.
Have a great weekend!
I sent your reply on to my daughter, Rebecca and, as you are aware, she has booked the games with you. I just want to thank you for your very prompt and well researched reply. I felt that you had read and interpreted my request fully and responded in detail to cover all the aspects I had raised. You were thorough and attentive to detail. Thank you. I was very impressed.
Many thanks and best wishes
Thank you we had a lovely wedding. Stuart was lovely to talk to over the phone and even though I was not there to listen to his piping before the wedding, he carried out the instructions perfectly.
I thank you for your continued contact after the first time I first contacted PME entertainment. It makes such a difference when one is trying to organize a wedding to have the people you are dealing with doing their bit!
Thank you for your email. We highly appreciated the great service that we received from PME Entertainment and Nicola was great!
We will keep PME Entertainment in mind for future events and conferences
Verve – the Event Agency
Just to let you know that we were very happy with Kerryn's performance, he was excellent and held the attention of our residents throughout. Our Asst Manager took photos and I will send you a copy as soon as I can get a copy from him.
We are more than happy with PME,your prices are reasonable and not over the top.
Yes, they were great!
We had a great evening and having ‘Crossroads Duo’ helped to make it so
They were helpful, professional and we fully trusted them re times, song choice, volume etc
We happily recommend them
Thank you also. We have found PME Entertainment Agents to be very helpful for us selecting music for the evening
Jim & Mary Grayling
Hi Robyn, Pete,
A huge thank you for your help in organising our entertainment.
This was actually our wedding and Aro were incredible – everyone was BLOWN AWAY by how fabulous they were. We had multiple enquiries following their performance.
Thank you for your help and all the very best.
Thanks Robyn, our day was wonderful, the band were one highlight, super professional, on time, amazing performance and very memorable.
Our experience with PME has been very easy, thanks again.
Just a quick email to thank you for putting us in touch with the two acts who performed at my husbands 70th birthday party.
I was thankful to have found your agency and even more thankful to discover that the service you provide is very prompt, professional & personable. You're our 'go to' company for any future events.
Alexander Sparrow as Donald Trump was a show stopper! He was able to capture the memorable times in my husbands life and convey them with such sincerity & humour that our guests are still chuckling about the 'show' days after. His take off of Trump is so convincing, he's simply amazing!
Gary Brown as Austin Powers raised the roof and really got the party rocking. So true to character it was hard to believe he was an impersonator! His song and dance act had the room instantly up on their feet and dancing up a storm. He was fabulous!
It was a great night ... a night we're extremely happy to be adding to our store of memories.
Annie & Chris Sharp
Yes we thoroughly enjoyed the Garden City Combo. great range of tune, ability and versitility were fantastic as well. After one decent phone call to organise the gig, the whole thing went off so smoothly! they were happy to accomodate our needs and timetable. AND they did a great job of covering our first dance! Absolutely fantastic and will book them again in future!
You guys were also easy to deal with so I thank you very much for that :)

Michel was fantastic, flexible and such a nice guy. Very talented and a credit to your agency and himself.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank your Entertainment company and the Sparx band (being Brian playing solo in this case), in the compassionate and professional may you both handled my best mate funeral booking and performance on the day.
The music was superb and tailored as required for the funeral. No effort was sparred by the Band and Brian to either play a classic and or learn a new song for the event in only a 3 day notice period.
I would recommendation your agency and the band Sparx to anyone looking for event music

Yes, as per the email I sent to Layton and you earlier of today – Saturday night was another great evening and everything went really well.
Once again, thank you for suggesting this band for our event … as I don’t go out ‘clubbing’ I don’t have any ideas as to what bands are any good … so your suggestions each year have been greatly appreciated and our staff have certainly given great feedback each time.

Sorry I have just found that I never replied to your email.
Club Manouche were FANTASTIC!! We had some wonderful feedback from the guests. They really enjoyed listening to them and that they were wonderful to watch perform as you could tell the enjoyed playing great music.
We would definitely use them and yourselves again for future events. Everything from booking the band to the day of the event was very simple and hassle free.
Thanks very much.
Good morning Pete
Yes we had a very successful 60th birthday party. Our DJ was terrific he knew exactly what songs to play to keep our guests on the dance floor for our age bracket. He was also extremely obliging when we asked for requests. A big surprise was that he could actually sing as well. I was also pleased that he stuck to the curfew time of midnight despite some of our guests asking him to keep going as the hotel we used had a no noise policy after midnight.
I will certainly recommend to any one using your agency to book a DJ or band in the future should the opportunity arise, the whole process has been handled very professionally and without one hitch.
Thank you again.
Jafa was amazing...everyone was amazed by them. They were definitely a highlight of the night. It was God's blessing that we found them and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wanted to have a duo for their function. They are professional and their voice are great :)
Thanks heaps Pete for being so helpful.
Michael Jen Jie Chu
The NZ Blues Brothers and Abbey Road where both standout hits with the festival crowd on Sunday. After selling out on Saturday it was a great way to finish the festival weekend with more than two thousand people dancing and singing along with them.
Thanks also needs to go to the Mike Nisbet Trio for a great set, it is always a hard act to start any festival however the music was great and helped to set the tone for what was a great day enjoyed by all.
Thanks again to you for providing such great entertainers.
On behalf of the Kia Motors Devonport Food, Wine & Music Festival and the organizers B3 Events Limited.
thanks for your email. The group were fantastic and even one of my 'pickier' musical guests was saying how he really enjoyed their music and selection. I'd highly recommend the group and your service to others.
Thanks for all your help through the process as during a slightly stressful time, it's great that someone else can put your mind at ease.
Thanks for your follow up email and for all your help in making our wedding day the best day of our lives. Your professionalism and prompt correspondence has made the lead up to the big day stress free & we are truely grateful. I will certainly be recommending your service to others and if I ever get the chance to theme an event such as our wedding Erna will be our first choice !!
I'd be more than happy for you to use our comments below on your website.
"Erna and the band were absolutely fantastic. They made the whole evening and theme of our 1920-30's vintage inspired wedding day tie in together perfectly. Erna was decked out in 1920's attire and her cheeky grin and amazing voice delighted all the guests. People continue to talk about how wonderful they were and how much they enjoyed dancing the night away. The music was perfectly suited to our theme and was timed for the progression of the night. The mixture of old and new could not have been better done. Having Erna specially learn our first dance song was very special for us. My husband and I would personally like to thank Erna and the band for their amazing performance and for helping make our wedding night the most amazing night of our lives ! "
Thanks again Pete,
All the very best for 2010.
Anna & Damian Murnane

Hi Kellie and Pete,
Thank you so much for organising Anna Hawkins to sing at my mother's funeral on 4th August. We were absolutely delighted with her performance as was every one else. Also we did appreciate the efficiency of your company in organising this, and of Anna in performing so splendidly and at such short notice.
Many thanks again,
Thank you Pete McGregor Entertainment for your excellent service throughout the planning of my wedding. Tongue and Groove were fantastic ..once the band started the dancefloor was the place to be and not once through the evening was there no one dancing. So many of our friends and family commented on how great the band was.
I would and have already recommended your services to a number of people searching for the right entertainment for thier event- you guys helped us to put on a fabulous wedding. Thank you so much!!!
P.S. I am more than happy for you to use the above comments to post on your website.
It was a great pleasure dealing with Graeme Webb prior to the event, he made things very easy. Unfortunately as I was the groom, and the band played while we where away doing our photos, I only got to hear one song when I returned. But that one song was excellent, set the tone and mood precisely as I'd wished, and the feed back I got from all the guest I spoke to about the music was glowing. They where spot on by all accounts, so I couldn't ask for more. If I ever was in the position to hire or recommend a Jazz Trio in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to sing the Graeme Webb trio's praises'. Please pass on my sincerest thanks.
Thanks for your outstanding work on the production/managerial side too Kellie.
Sorry it has taken me awhile to return your email.
We thought Roundhouse was a fantastic band. They really captured the theme of the evening and played some fantastic music. Our managers and suppliers who were invited to the party commented on how awesome the band was and enjoyed what they played.
We will definitely keep you guys in mind for any future events.
Thank you and kind regards,
Lyzzy and The Baby Factory
We had an awesome time with Crush they were fantastic and really made the party a very special occasion J we wouldn’t hesitate to get them back again another time J
Thanks for all your help at pete Mcgregor as well.
All the best for the new year
Thanks for your email. We had a great evening and Phil Garland was excellent. My mum was really impressed because she said he was famous in the sixties! It has been great dealing with you and we'll definitely bookmark you for any other upcoming events.
Every thing was great on the day, and nothing went wrong, weather held out for the photos,
so was very lucky.
Laura & I would like to give a huge thanks to the band, they were fantastic and made the night even
more special. They were very professional, were on time and the music was exactly what we wanted.
Everyone talked all night how great they where and wanted to know where we booked them through.
Could you please pass on a big thank you to all of them, they are fantastic and we couldn't have asked for
a better band, and would recommend then and you to anyone that asked.
Thanks, once again for the great service.
Thank you for your email. Am very impressed with Pete McGregor Entertainment. The DJ did a fantastic job on Saturday and we all had a wonderful time. I wouldn't hestitate to contact you for any future events and most certainly will recommend you to family and friends!

Eden Event Management Limited
Soulcage were AWESOME! it's very true that a band does make a wedding! It was a challenge to organise a band from Australia for our wedding in New Zealand and we only hoped that Soul Cage were as good as what their samples indicated on your website, and I must say they were even better than expected. Paul was very accommodating and our wedding was more successful and fun that we could have imagined, so to Paul and Celeste a big thankyou for your involvement in making our day perfect! and also to you and the team at Pete McGregor Entertainment, thanks for making our decision to use your company so pleasant.
Tara and Daniel Botting
It was great. Thank you for continually doing a wonderful job for us.
Thank you for your email and interest in our upcoming event. Yes, it is all coming along, finalising of details falling into place. I have been in contact with John from the Starlight String Trio and had an email from Caroline this morning.
I would like to thank you and Kellie for your great service and help along the way. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you both and I am very happy that I have established a most reliable source for future entertainment requirements.
I will let you know how it all goes after the event.
Once again, a big thank you
We had a fantastic day and it was in great part due to the wonderful music by the Starlight Strings Quartet. Many of our guests have since commented on how very good they were, very professional and just perfect for the venue and the occasion.
We would have no hesitation in recommending them to others or having them play at another of our functions.
Also many thanks to your company for making it all so easy and hassle free.
Anita Maes (60th Birthday)

Indeed, everything is going according to plan. We are still running the North Show Home & Garden Show on 24, 25, 26 February, and I'm sure the band will be a hit again. I will let you know if I don't hear from them
Also, I really like the way that you maintain contact with your customers - so many businesses I deal with are very lax in this area....and I always have to chase people up! It's nice to deal with a company that keeps on top of things
Jade Promotions Ltd
Yes, thank you very much. We had an amazing day and all the acts were
fantastic. They really added to our special day. The string quartet arrived
on time and were friendly, and in perfect harmony, making our wedding
ceremony a beautiful memory for all. Many guests commented on the
professionalism of the performance. Sasha was also perfectly on time and
entertained well with his beauiful music and fun personality while the
bridal party were away on a photo shoot, and also later as the guests were
seated in the marquee. Absolutely brilliant! Then, of course, the DJ Eddie
added the perfect ending to the perfect day! He played all our requested
tracks, plus a few of his own favourites and the dance floor was a busy
place full of laughing and happy guests, all the way to midnight!
We have sent formal thank yous to you and the acts. please could you forward
the cards to the appropriate acts, as we do not have their individual
addresses. The envelope with these cards has been sent from the Cook Islands
today, and should arrive in less than ten days.
Thank you for everything!
Best Wishes, Clare and Greg
Thank you to you and your team for the extremely professional service, we have been delighted.
Rachael and Keith wedding
Dear Pete & Robyn
Just wanted to say thank you for doing such a sterling job of booking and administering the Graeme Webb Trio for our wedding. Really appreciated the promptness of service that you gave us, weddings are very stressful, so it's great when things go right.
Graeme Webb Trio were brilliant, the guests at our wedding raved about how enjoyable it was to have Jazz playing in the background while people socialised. Graeme Webb was very professional and his band was fantastic. We loved it !!
Thanks for helping to make our wedding so successful.
Anita & Manu wedding
Wow you guys/gal were amazing. I have received fabulous feedback from the couple and guests. They have all commented on the selection that you played and found it to fit very well with the guests. Evidenced by the full dance floor most of the night.
Pete I wish to personally thank you for your guidance, support and expertise regarding the musical stuff for this one. Your patience with my lack of experience in bringing together so many musical arrangements / talent was amazing. Thank you so much.
I would welcome any feedback that you can give me on how I can make things run smoother for future weddings / events.
I look forward to referring future clients to you for their musical / entertainment needs.
Have a great Christmas and I will be in touch again in the New Year.
Gayle (Garmez - Blockbuster Entertainment)
I am just writing to thank you for all your efforts in organising the band for our Christmas Social. As usual you are very efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Well done Pete.
As for the band Rectroactive, they were absolutely fantastic. They contacted us the week before the event to make sure they had all our details correct. They arrived early on the day and were fully set up ready to go by mid afternoon. They started the gig bang on time and from the moment they started playing the crowds hit the floor. The quality and choice of there music was brilliant and their ability to engage with the audience was quite unique. They seemed to be enjoying themselves more than the crowd. The music kept coming all night with only two 10 minute breaks and it was a very happy crowd of party goers who reluctantly said goodbye to Retroactive.
We have had nothing but great feedback from our staff about the band, many of them commenting that its the best band we have ever had. That is saying something as we have been organising these functions for 20 years now. I have no hesitation in recommending Retroactive to anyone. Please pass our thanks on to the band.
New Zealand Refining Company Sports and Social Club.
Thanks for your email Robyn. The two acts were absolutely perfect. We were
delighted with both, your recommendations certainly helped the whole party
go with a swing! Have a very Merry Christmas and a great new year.

I would like to pass on my sincere thanks for the wonderful job you did on Saturday night.

Looking forward to next year already!
Thank you once again.

Sorry just realised that I hadn't responded to your email of a month ago - oh well better late than never.
We were extremely impressed with the Kevin Clark Trio and Fran Barton for our wedding - in fact they were one of the highlights of the whole day. People couldn't wait to get up and dance. We were really impressed with their professionalism and style. We also appreciated the help that you and your staff provided - if it wasn't for you, we probably wouldn't have thought of booking Kevin - so glad that we did.
The function went really well. Much quieter than I anticipated (so not much dancing!), but the band was great and everyone enjoyed them.
Thanks again for your help with finding the perfect band for the event. Will be in touch when we need some more entertainment.

Many thanks for your follow up e-mail.
Yes, Cool Wave performed extremely well.
Their music was perfect for the occasion and the band leader couldn't have been more helpful and obliging.
I will definitely keep you in mind for future reference.
Many thanks again to yourself and the band.
Penny Collings (Navman event)
Yes the event was absolutely fantastic. Everyone said is was the best function we had ever held. The Larry Morris band were superb. and Susy (Lee - as Helen Clark) gave an outstanding performance. We managed to keep her appearance secret to the end and she arrived at the venue to the sounds of a police siren and flashing blue light. I'm sure about 80% thought it was Helen Clark. Thanks for all your efforts it has been great to deal with such a professional organisation. We will be using you again that's for sure. In fact we are having a meeting tomorrow to finalise the show for variety show for our open day in September. I will be in touch tomorrow hopefully to confirm acts.
Thanks once again.
Brian Oakes (NZ Refinery 40 yr celebrations)

Jack Elder New Hots Orchestra USA Jan 2001
"Thanks Pete...Both bands were fantastic, I loved the Preservation Dixie trio they were real showman, the De Vine trio were great but a little too quiet, but both were successful...it is a slightly unusual event and they both did really well."
Thanks Anne Larnach
Auckland City Council Events Feb 2002
(Panmure Basin Festival)
"Just want some kind of general entertainment. Could be something like dance instructor or some kind of group participation thing like line dancing. Maybe a good covers band that would get everyone up and dancing but will be quite a broad age group attending. Am open to suggestions also. Have a fairly limited budget. Love the website!"
Matt Little Feb 2002
"Everything was great thanks Pete, and thanks to Mojave too. Not much dancing but that wasn't their fault, the music was beautiful."
Cheers Mark and Amiria. March 2002
We had a wonderful night!
The music was great and there was always someone on the dance floor.
I received a lot of positive feedback from our conference delegates. Lynne and the Band interacted well with our group and I would highly recommend them.
Thank you for all your help and patience in the lead up to our function and hopeful we can do the same thing again next year! Thanks again! "
Reliv Australia Masquerade Ball March 2002
"Hi Pete, They (Heartstrings) were brilliant!
We were so impressed with them we could not have chosen better. Thank you for putting us on to them.
If possible I would like to phone them personally and thank them but I can't find their phone number. Would it be ok for you to pass it on to me?
Once again thank you for all your help and yes we had a perfect day."
Regards Helen (Proctor)

Awesome sound that crossed all ages.
(Banda Latina Howarth Private party Oct 2002)
Pete - Things went swimmingly (almost literally - it was very wet) and Trudy & co did a huge gig - everybody enjoyed the music, plus, we had truda on after mojave so event was a bang rather than a damp squib;
Once again thank you and with your permission I shall give your contact to people who have been asking about the bands;
Gaz Maroof (wedding Oct 2002)

Many Thanks Pete,
Adrian (Keeling) and the Band were amazing, and we have had so much great feedback regarding you guys since the wedding from our guests. Thankyou for providing such a classy act!!!
We had a ball. I trust Dad gave you the cheque?
Many Thanks Pete for everything.
Katie and David Harrison. (wedding Oct 2002)
Yes Jim and Jessie were great and everybody has raved about the successful party. The only thing we did wrong was to book them only until midnight - we should have kept them going for an hour or so longer. But thanks again - we look forward to talking to you again at our next big event.
Cheers Carmel (birthday party Nov 2002)
Inquiry handled promptly & efficiently

The band was great (Shagadelic) - arrived on time - setup in the right place, effectively and did a great job of
keeping everyone on the dance floor.
The vocalist had a great voice and the bass player (was one myself a few years ago) was possibly one of the best local guys I've heard.
The drummer and guitarist were also very good and the overall performance of the band was tight
I also think your web site is excellent - it enabled us to see the band (picture) and also hear a montage
of their sound -which actually proved a pretty acurate sample!!
Everyone enjoyed the evening - a great location, good food and great entertainment.
Fron feedback that I've has we willbe doing something similar next year so I'll look you
up again then.
