NEON CITY

Neon City will light up the night with a set that is tight, funky and groovy! Performing songs by artists like Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and James Brown, Neon City offer up a high energy mix of pop, dance, classics, top 40 and funk that will connect with any audience. The band perform medleys of popular songs, creating a seamless party experience on the dance floor.

 

We booked Neon City for our annual convention this year, and they were absolutely fantastic. The perfect band if you want everyone to have some fun. The dancing started immediately, the band knew exactly what to play to keep the crowd enjoying every moment. Would highly recommend them.

The Pick Ups

The Pickups are an Auckland 5 piece that bring a new approach to the Auckland music scene. The band’s setlist features Top 40 bangers alongside 70s, 80s and 90s pop hits. Whether the original vocalist was male or female, the exceptionally talented Pickups vocalist Victor Hawkins-Sulfa has got it covered. From Bruno Mars to Tears for Fears, Michael Jacson to Whitney Houston(!), this band has something for everyone. We guarantee they’ll have the dance floor jammed packed until the end of the night.

 

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 band's 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.

Jumpsuit 

Need wall to wall classics for everyone to enjoy, from your tradie cousin to your 80 year old nana? No problem. From Pharrell Williams to Dragon, Jumpsuit’s classic hit collection of songs will suit every occasion. Every Jumpsuit gig is tailored to the audience, whether you want to start slow and speed things up as the night progresses, or just dive in the deep end and get loose at 8pm. 

 

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. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others in the future. Thank you again, it really finished of our day beautifully.

Blue Steel

Want the big, big hits? That's Blue Steel. Featuring a setlist packed with classic songs from icons such as Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones and more, Blue Steel play the bangers you know and love. With nothing but hits from the 60s, 70s and 80s, and male and female vocalists, Blue Steel are guaranteed to keep your guests on the dance floor all night long.

 

We just wanted to touch base to thank you all so much for playing at our wedding. You 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!

kid radio

Kid Radio are not a rock band. Not even a little bit. Instead, the Kid Radio boys are deeply committed to the groove. Forget screaming guitar solos and pounding drums - Kid Radio mix up hip hop, r'n'b, pop, funk and soul, performing songs by artists like Stevie Wonder, Prince, Earth, Wind and Fire and Kanye West. 

 

The guys in Kid Radio blew away the crowd at our wedding with their fun energy, extreme talent and diverse selection of full songs and medleys/mash-ups that kept all of us dancing until the very end. They exceeded every expectation, and I would hire them again tomorrow.

Big Ticket

Upbeat, vintage and tons of fun, Big Ticket are the sound of staying up all night drinking whiskey with Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald in a crowded juke joint, and dancing til dawn.

They take pop hits by artists like Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Taylor Swift and even Bon Jovi, and turn them on their head, performing them with a unique vintage twist. The band dress to impress, looking like they just stepped out of the 1940s, and adding a touch of Great Gatsby magic to any event.
