Sophisticated and stylish - a perfect solution for weddings, functions and corporate events. A happy groovy music from flute player Miho Wada combined with the unique sound of her talented jazz orchestra will bring out the smile’s and sunshine all year around.

Romantic and badass all in one, Miho’s dynamic jazz orchestra will keep you dancing and waltz-ing from toddlers to young at heart.

They have the versatility to customise every show by transforming the line-up from 6 piece (flute/sax, violin, cello, guitar, bass & drums) all the way down to 2 piece (flute & guitar) to find a perfect match for your event!

Reviews

As a person who has seen this band perform at several venues around the Auckland area both in intimate and large-venue settings, I can say they are as tight and as professional a band as I have ever seen, and I have been an avid viewer of live music practically since childhood. I would have absolutely no hesitation in calling them world-class. I would characterise their originals as incredibly fun and danceable, with a friendly, familiar quality to them that will make you wonder why you haven't heard them before. Definitely a band I'd hire for a private function without thinking twice. Oh yes... and I suppose I'd really be selling them short if I didn't mention that as a band, they're a bunch of really great-looking people, which never hurts. Jamie Blackman -

We had Miho Wada's Jazz orchestra for our private function and were extremely happy and entertained with their tight professional and enjoyable set of covers and originals. It's hard to find an act that is Fun with a capital F, appeals to a wide age range and presents a quality set and sound but this Jazz Orchestra did exactly what we needed for our function and were great to deal with. Highly Recommended Roger Squire -

Having followed the band around for a while, as a photographer and avid fan, I was thrilled when I was able to book them for a private function. On and off stage they were top class professionals, interacting with the audience and making everyone feel like part of the fun. It was a really good night, many of my guests commented on how awesome the band was with their unique sound and funky style smile .. So I just wanted to say thanks so much for the gig, it was an awesome night!! Highly recommend the band to anyone looking for corporate entertainment or even private functions. Totally worth it....
