"I just want to thank you for your bands great contribution to our wedding on 17 March. You got everybody up dancing and we have had a lot of good comments on the music. Chris will place some good feed back on your website" Mark & Chris Flower Wedding @ Sorrento - 1 April 2012

“Thank you for the most amazing night you guys gave us for our wedding reception. We had so much fun dancing with everyone of all ages on the night and I will never forget it! Thanks also for letting my Dad get up and play a song with you – that was a high-light of the night for me watching Dad play – and he probably felt really cool too!! Thanks for giving me so many fun memories from the ‘party’ part of our wedding! Friends of ours who came to the wedding who are looking for a band have already been asking us about you – and we will certainly be recommending you guys!" Sarah Beadle Wedding @ Sorrento - 22 March 2012

“Thank you.... a great night and the Principal’s feedback is (it was) the best one yet!” Diocesan Graduation Ball, Anna Irvine, Old Girls League - 9 December 2011

"We had a tremendous time on Saturday night. We were very taken by your professionalism and grooming. Lots of the girls said how lovely Charlie & Zara looked. You guy's put in a grand effort. Your music was just great and got everyone up on the dance floor ! Thanks so much.” Richard Harden Wedding @ Waiheke Island - 15 January 2011

“The band was terrific and the dance floor was full all night.......... a successful ball! ” Kiwi Club Expat Ball in Papua New Guinea - 18 September 2010

“Thanks for a great night. We have received absolutely wonderful feedback. They can be a tough crowd sometimes” RNZYS Members Night, Zana Ward (Events Manager) - 28 August 2010

"Tongue and Groove lived up to their stirling expectation to perform. The soft music as guests had wine and canapés and enjoyed the view and the sunset, went down a treat. And later to get everyone up dancing, including those who don't usually dance, was widely appreciated. The covers music was perfect for the 60th birthday celebrations at Delamore Lodge on Waiheke Island and we shall definitely use the band again should another occasion to celebrate come up. All our guests are still talking about the evening!" Lorraine Thomson - Wedding - 21 January 2016
