Becks and Michael

Rebecca Wright has been involved in musical theatre for many years, most recently performing the title role of Cinderella, and Mimi in Rent both performed at the Civic Theatre in 2010 and 2011. She was the lead role of Pearl in Starlight Express 2009 NZ arena tour. Other credits include the NZ tour of Evita and Amour Fantastique. She performs in various cover bands around the country, has starred in both Christmas in the Park and Symphony under the Stars for the last five years and was a finalist in NZ Idol back in 2006. Since finishing runner up in the inaugural series of NZ Idol, Michael Murphy has enjoyed a successful career in the music industry throughout New Zealand and internationally. After finishing NZ Idol in 2004, Michael signed to BMG records and started work on a solo career. His first single debuted at number 1 and further singles after that spent a considerable amount of time at the top of radio airplay charts. His debut album ‘No Place To Land’ earned him gold status and took him around the country performing to sold out audiences and eager fans. Michael later grew tired of performing as a solo artist and spent the next four years touring through New Zealand, America and England as part of rock band, 5star Fallout. Both Rebecca and Michael returned to New Zealand in 2009 and were cast alongside each other in the 2010 production of Rent at the Civic Theatre. They immediately developed a close bond and found that whilst their voices were very different, they gelled together perfectly and created something very special. When the season of Rent came to an end, the pair decided that it would be a waste to let their new found vocal partnership end there. Specialising in corporate functions, weddings and parties, whether you want to dance into the wee small hours or listen to beautiful, relaxed music whilst you drink cocktails or eat dinner, we can tailor our show to whatever your event or function may require. This is just a taste of our extensive repertoire.

It was a great night and the music from Becks and Michael was really great. In hindsight, we could of paid more to have them stay longer as everyone wanted to party on for longer, but that's something for us to remember for next time. Thanks again for your help Jacob!
Becks & Michael were an absolute class act. Not only did they perfectly cover the song we requested for our first dance but had 90% of a 130 strong wedding up and dancing from 9pm till 12pm. The Marquee was packed out the whole night with people dancing outside the marquee. Every age group commended us on their performance. The 6 song encore had their stage surrounded by singing guests. Highly recommended and still buzzing from their sets!
Becks and Michael were lovely to work with and a lot of fun. They did an awesome job with ceremony and reception and everyone commented on how good they were. Would highly recommend them to others and we will certainly look to use them again for our work functions as well smile
Becks and Michael were incredibly professional and in our minds went above and beyond what we had expected in regards to ensuring we had a good time. They read the crowd superbly and delivered a phenomenal performance. They made our wedding a memorable event for all and we had so many guests come up to us and say how much they enjoyed the live music. Sammie and I raved about Becks and Michael over breakfast the next day and how we would be keen to try and involve them in a future event. Moreover, they were very personable. Not only were they great performers, but also genuine and lovely people. We couldn’t possibly recommend them more highly.
