Aro are a warm, fun and talented husband & wife duo made up of Charles and Emily Looker.
The pair are full time musicians who have an large repertoire of covers music to suit all types of occasions, as well as their original music.

With their jazz-pop flavour, Aro have a perfect set for weddings, with a history of having played at weddings over various parts of the day from pre-ceremony, ceremony, post ceremony drinks, over dinner and bringing the dance tunes for grooving into the night.
They have been playing at weddings since 2016 as Aro, however Emily has been wedding singing since 2012.

As well as weddings, the pair have a great set for corporate events and winery’s, perfect for a Christmas do or celebration, and a more upbeat set prepared for party gigs with all the songs you’ll know and want to sing along to.
They have played at several wineries on Waiheke, corporate events such as Top Student awards in central Auckland, Christmas functions for various corporate businesses and special events such as Waitangi Day Celebrations in Paeroa.

Charles and Emily value creating the perfect accompaniment to the events they play at by ensuring they capture the 'vibe' of the place or the vision that has been set for an event / wedding.

Their style is a combination of pop, soul, R&B, and jazz. The harmonies this pair create have become their signature sound and they will add something special to your event.

Aro are always happy to add additional songs to their set if you have some favourites you'd like to hear at your event too. They have a broad repertoire of music from the old classics right up to the popular anthems you hear on the radio today.

Comments from the 'bride and groom':

"Charles and Emily were great and made the music one thing we didn't need to worry about on our big day. They were friendly, yet professional and very adaptable. We're very thankful that they could help to set a relaxed vibe at our reception and of course they sounded beautiful!" - JD and Christie Dutton | Abbeville Estate, Auckland

"I am so happy Emily and Charles were able to sing at our wedding – The very first things I locked in was the photographer and these two to play tunes at our reception! It was just as I'd hoped, and the room was buzzing, everyone loved having some live music to listen to while they chatted and it helps that Emily and Charles are totally in love so the wedding love vibes were outta control!!! They are so easy and natural and put everyone totally at ease." -Steph and Doug | Kumeu

"The songs that we chose for our ceremony meant a lot to us, so it was really beautiful to have Emily and Charles want to understand that and grasp the depth of the songs and what they meant to us. It helped that they are an extremely talented duo and are singing out of a place of love themselves!" - Jade and Daniel | Central Auckland

We also have a covers set (up to 3 hours) of upbeat music (the kind you'll want to sing and dance along with, or at least tap your foot to.) We are always happy to add additional songs to our set if you have some favourites you'd like to hear at your event too. We have a broad repertoire of music from the old classics right up to the popular anthems you hear on the radio today.
