Vintage Blue

Vintage Blue is a guitar and vocal duo comprising of Jenny & Rob Payne who have been performing together for over 13 years. They met whilst studying Jazz and their passion for performing music blossomed from there.

Vintage Blue’s sound is unique, with Jenny’s sultry yet at times ethereal voice, matched with Rob’s outstanding guitar chops. They pour love and soul into their music, a fusion of mellow jazz grooves, their unique spin on pop music and a few originals thrown in for good measure.

Music encompasses all angles of their lives, with Jenny a vocal coach and Rob managing Music Planet Canterbury. They are often found in their recording studio and recently won a Tui Award for one of their side projects.

They have extensive experience, performing at countless weddings, private functions and corporate events. They also perform regularly on the local music scene, playing at many venues such as Baretta, The Monday Room and Christchurch Casino VIP Lounge.

Testimonials

We thoroughly recommend RJ Duo for a polished, professional performance. The pair were extremely responsive, given such short notice, and very approachable and sensitive to our needs during the planning process. In performance, they surpassed our expectations and delivered a harmonious, melodic recital which decidedly enhanced our anniversary soiree. Rob's slick accompaniment, on jazz guitar, complemented Jenny's dulcet vocals, to create a memorable and mellifluous backdrop for our special occasion. A heartfelt thanks to you both.

We had heard Jenny and Rob quite a few times at various locations before we got engaged. We loved listening to them and were always impressed at the many different genres they could play. Jenny has such a beautiful voice and Rob is an extremely talented musician. They were an obvious choice for our special day, we never even considered anyone else. We had quite specific ideas for our ceremony and nothing was a problem for Jen and Rob. They event itself was completely stress free and numerous guests commented about how nice it was having live music, not to mention how great the two of them were. We couldn’t be happier with how the ceremony went. Jenny and Rob helped us create a romantic, magical moment in time which we will treasure forever.

Vintage Blue played at my wedding and as soon as they started performing I knew I had chosen the right band. They had to perform outside in rather chilly temperatures but the sound was up to recording standards. They provided a nice background music for everyone to listen, have a chat, and just relax to and it was exactly the atmosphere I wanted for my reception. Thank you once again for your great contribution to my special day.
