The Monroes = Entertainment.

When this band hits the stage you want your jaw to hit the floor.  That is The Monroes musical mission.

A truly international band with its members having performed extensively throughout the Middle East, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia and our bass player even gigged in Uganda once.  The band have drawn on this experience and their band chemistry to come up with one of the most exciting entertainment experiences in New Zealand today.

You want 60s Rock n Roll?  CHECK
You want 70s Disco?  CHECK
You want your favourite Bon Jovi song from the 80s?  CHECK
You want that new one on ZM by what’s her name?  Yes we even do that!!

The Monroes cover 50 years of music from Johnny B Goode to Katy Perry, AC/DC to ABBA.  They have honed the skill of reading the crowd and adapting their repertoire over the course of the night to suit the audiences tastes. One thing is for sure, the dance floor is always packed, and people are smiling which is the main ingredient of any great night out.

The Monroes are proud to have both female and male vocals giving them true versatility, but its the stage show that the band are most proud of. Energy, excitement, Entertainment…and that’s just adjectives brought to you by the letter E….this is one band that’ll excite your senses and rock your special night.

We had The Monroes play at our Wedding in 2010 at Vilagrads and have had nothing but the most positive feedback from all our guests! They are still speaking of that night now! Can you do my 30th party now please??? Kura Falleni - 16 October 2010

What an incredible sight to see you guys up there playing with Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top at our Leadfoot Festival. It was great fun and you guys did a great job. Shelley Campbell - 24 March 2012

Thanks for once again performing out our Diamond Dealer awards, yet another outstanding performance from you all. Hopefully we’ll see you again next year. Mitsubishi - 27 April 2012

Everyone loved the band, they were amazing. Their energy was great and really set the tone for such an awesome night. Thanks so much for doing all the organising, the band was a highlight! Charlie King - St Peter’s, Cambridge. - 24 May 2017
