We recently had our company mid winter Xmas dinner at Sails Restaurant . We hired Downtown All Stars as our entertainment . There were approx. 120 guests made up of clients and staff ranging in age from early 20s to late 70s so I was a bit nervous initially as to whether the band would appeal to such a wide age group. Danny and his band had all age groups on the dance floor. The entertainment turned out to be a huge success with lots of positive comments and praise. The variety in the playlist was amazing. Danny’s professional attitude made it a hassle free experience. If you want professional top quality music entertainment hire Downtown All Stars. Ross Joyce Haydn and Rollett - 12 July 2014

Wow, these guys are great!! I event managed a 190 pax event last week, Danny and his crew are brilliant, really easy to deal with, always on time, really flexible. Music is cool!! Would highly recommend the Downtown All Stars for your event!! Tracy Felton Events Manager (on contract) New Zealand Venture Investment Fund Ltd - 24 July 2014

My husband and I have very different tastes in music, so I was a little apprehensive about choosing a band for our wedding. I foundDowntown All Stars through a Google search, and listened to some of their music online. I was impressed and booked them for our big day. Danny and the band were very accommodating, and discussed all our options for our special day well in advance. I found them professional and thorough, nothing was left to chance. Our venue was different to the standard venue ( a boat), but Danny just took it in his stride. Nothing was an issue, which was so lovely, and really set our minds at ease. When our big day came, there was the band, all set up and ready to go. Our guests were most impressed by the choice of music played. There was something for everyone. The Downtown All Stars have a great play list to choose from. Thank you guys! We will happily recommend you to family and friends. Emily & Ryon Derriman - 25 January 2014

Many thanks for an excellent performance on Saturday evening. The quality and sound were superb. We've had many unsolicited compliments from guests regarding the band and your contribution was a major influence on making it an evening to remember for Dee and all our guests. Please pass on our thanks to all the band members and thanks for being so flexible! David & Dee - 1 December 2012

We had Danny playing at our corporate pre-match function before the All Blacks vs England test match. He was fantastic, created such a cool/smooth environment for our guests of 200. His professionalism and talented ability was highly visible and he was admired by all. He was extremely easy to work with and very adaptable though out the function. I would highly recommend him, we have already booked him in for our next function and can’t wait to hear him play again. Brigitte Tyler Essentially New Zealand - 7 June 2014

The Downtown All Stars played for us at our staff Christmas party. The band has some real talent and Danny is great on vocals. The set list went down well, and an audience ranging in age and background was kept on the dance floor. At all times the band was professional to deal with. I would recommend. Simpson Grierson - 7 December 2012

The Downtown All Stars were the perfect pick for our awards party. With a vast repertoire of songs they read the audience perfectly and played hit after hit ensuring that the dancefloor was full and that everyone had a great time. They were so good we have hired them for this years event! Entrepreneurs Organisation. Caroline Henty - 19 June 2010

Findaband was very professional - easy process indeed. The muso's (Downtown All Stars) were a lovely bunch of guys and once again professional also. No hesitation at all recommending these guys-polished, timely and adaptable-too easy! All round top service from start to finish. Andrew Coombes - 11 November 2017

Our firm hired The Downtown All Stars as a trio for our 2009 staff Christmas party. From start to finish, the band were very pleasant to deal with and professional at all times. We were extremely pleased with not only their performance on the night (our staff loved them and danced non-stop!), but also with their friendly and efficient communication leading up to the event. We would, without hesitation, recommend the The Downtown All Stars to anyone looking to hire a band. They are a great bunch of guys and we will definitely use them again in the future! Sarah Davies - 28 November 2009

Thanks once again for playing for us at the annual NZI Sustainable Business Awards. It’s always such pleasure to work with you all and you contribute to creating a really fun and lively event. We really appreciate your flexibility, great timing and organization, friendliness, and help with working out the right feel for the music on the night. We will look forward to working with you again in the future. Sarah Munro - 12 November 2009
