Top 8 Wedding Bands in Auckland

Written by Sam Browne

We have narrowed down Auckland’s top 8 wedding bands to make finding the perfect band for your wedding that much easier. Read on to find out who made the list.

1. Blue Steel

Blue Steel has been performing together since 2007. Along with many A-list weddings, they've performed for clients including IBM, Ford, Sony Music, Bell Gully, Chapman Tripp, Vero Insurance and many more. Their diverse song list includes many classic hits alongside the latest pop tracks - from Bruno Mars and the Black Keys to the Rolling Stones and Van Morrison. You need a professional band that knows how to have fun with a large, diverse group of people. You need the right songs at the right time. You need to cater for a mix of different ages and interests, and you want something that is going to get everyone up and having fun.  No matter what you need, Blue Steel has got you covered.


We just wanted to touch base to thank you all so much for playing at our wedding. Blue Steel were amazing, just as we’d hoped and your reviews suggested. You managed to get everyone up on the dance floor at some point, and had it cranking all evening. The array of songs was a perfect mix for our guests and you read the crowd so well! Everyone has raved about how great you were so thank you again!




2. Jumpsuit

Are you seeking an Auckland covers band that will get the people up and dancing, having fun and singing along? Jumpsuit are that band!

Jumpsuit deliver tons of fun, songs you know and beats that won't stop.

The band are very open to suggestions on how you'd like your event to run and can shift gears from light background music right up to rock and pop anthems.

Their large, diverse song list means they have dozens of different songs to suit any event - every night is different and tailored to the audience.


Thank-you so much for playing at our wedding - It was amazing how Jumpsuit accommodated all tastes in music and guests - I think my Grandparents were on the dance floor all night! We had lots of comments from guest about how nice it was to have a live band instead of a DJ, I am so glad we chose this option. It goes to show how great your reputation already is as Adam's cousin has booked you in for their wedding early next year. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others in the future. Thank you again, it really finished of our day beautifully.




3. Kid Radio

Kid Radio are unlike any other Auckland wedding band. Their song list contains no trace of the tired pub hits of yesteryear. Instead, they’ve assembled a repertoire loaded with nothing but pure dynamite - the jams that other bands can’t touch. If names like Prince, Kanye, Stevie, Justin, Luther and MJ mean something to you, this is your band.


We had Kid Radio from Findaband perform at our wedding. The band were brilliant! Very friendly, professional, great performers and looked like they were enjoying what they were doing. We would highly recommend these guys, they are fun and play a mixture of new and old tunes without the typical juke box/karaoke songs.

4. The pickups

A super slick new addition to Auckland that we're picking (sorry) as the hottest choice for next summer, The Pickups perform classic tunes by artists such as Prince, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson. Super sweet jams combined with veteran musicians means a pumping dancefloor and many, many fist pump moments.


Our wedding was a week ago and our guests are still talking about them! They are so talented and had all of our guests up dancing the whole night. We can’t thank them enough, they made our wedding unforgettable!

Mister Speaker are a funk and soul powerhouse here to take you back to a funkier time!

After spending a year playing to packed houses as the resident band at The Lula Inn on the Auckland Viaduct, Vocalist Tane Tari and his 8 piece band are bringing their authentic, dynamic funk and soul sound direct to your event.
