Testimonials

TJ Taotua Trio performed at a recent formal evening event at the museum. I'd highly recommend this trio for any event to add vibrance, warmth and soul. The trio performed a variety of styles from the Pacific Islands, and a couple of perfectly chosen covers. And of course, TJ's soulful voice was a highlight. I'll definitely be looking to book the TJ Trio for future events.

I can’t speak highly enough of the Taotua Duo. We were looking for a group to play at our wedding, with more of a chill R&B vibe and they seemed to tick all the boxes. We looked around ALOT but after watching the group's video, we could not go past them. TJs voice is bloody impressive, and the two of them just worked so well together. They truly are an epic band, very professional, versatile, and friendly, playing awesome tracks from back in my day. Everyone at my wedding loved them(and are still talking about them now), with a few taking videos or just enjoying the songs they played, which really helped set the mood that we wanted. I would get them again in a heartbeat for any other event. Thanks for making our day special guys and we really appreciate it
