The band was excellent, played all the right music at the right time. Calibre of musicianship was amazing. And thank the guys for being very accommodating, allowing the UCG band to use their equipment. Sound was great.

On behalf of the RCSA, I just wanted to say thank you so much to all of your musicians in the PickUps for creating such an incredible event. You had the dance floor packed from the end of dessert until we had to finish up at 11.30pm with guests wanting more and more! We have received many compliments from our guests about the bands range and the way you kept the party moving. In fact some said it was the best band that they’d ever heard. Thank you.

Wow! we highly recommend this band!! They got everyone on the dance floor and made the night! It felt like we had our own personal concert was absolutely magical.

The Pickups are an incredible band. They played at our wedding and blew our socks off with how talented they are. Such awesome songs were played, and Victor's ability and range as a singer was amazing. Having The Pickups play at our wedding was one of the first plans we had made, and with a heap of our guests commenting on how great the band was, this has completely justified why we wanted them on our special day, incredible!

Dave and Joy Patrick | Wedding

We booked the Pick Ups for our Company Christmas Function. They graciously worked with our tropical theme and were absolutely fantastic, very organised and communicated well on the night. The lead singer and musicians are all very talented! I would highly recommend this band!

Shona Tokana | Pipeline and Civil Limited

We had The Pickups play at our Christmas Party and they were absolutely outstanding. They were classy, charming and most importantly, they were so much fun. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many people on a dance floor at one time. They were the highlight of the night and I have had so many guests saying how incredible they were. Thank you so much for making it such a remarkable party!

Jessica Haigh | McGuinness

The Pickups were outstanding! Our guests loved the energy that the band brought and the soaring vocals that had us all singing and dancing until the end of the night. Their setlists were awesome, bringing the funk to our rustic countryside wedding! We could not have found a more brilliant, fun and personable group of musicians to provide the music for our wedding reception. Absolutely recommend these guys!
