Brian plays lead and rhythm guitars, harmonica and lead vocals. Using the latest in sequencing technology, he programs all our backing tracks.

The result is a full band sound. Brian has been involved in the NZ music industry for many years, interspersed with trips overseas, where he has also performed solo and in bands.

Shona has been performing with Brian for the past 3 years, and although quite new to the business, has a natural talent for singing and entertaining.

SparX broad repertoire allows them to cater for all age groups and all types of functions. Ranging from quiet easy-listening music such as Van Morrison and Cat Stevens, through popular classics from the 50s to 90s, to recent hits by contemporary artists. Musical styles range from a waltz to hard rock, and include blues, rock’n’roll, techno-pop, rhythm & blues, country, middle-of-the-road, folk, classic rock and original compositions.

Unlike many bands, SparX know how to turn the volume down for weddings, restaurants etc, but if required have a top-of-the-line PA system capable of pumping out a floor full of dance beat.

SparX also understand the importance of being reliable, punctual and well presented.

Ideal for: dance music for corporate function, party, wedding reception dance

I just wanted to say a few words and let you know how happy we were with Sparx. They played at our wedding on 25th of February, and Brian and Shona were not only friendly and personable, they also played exactly the kind of music that we wanted. They hit the note and the theme of the occasion, and they had us up and dancing consitently for hours. We also felt like they were a part of our celebration, and had very good interaction with the guests.
Please email me more if you have any inquiries. I just wanted to do a little testimony for Sparx and let you know that they are the right kind of band for a wedding.
