This flexible space can accommodate all types of entertainment, from DJs and acoustic duos through to 4 and 5 piece bands. We've picked three of our favourite party bands to help you ensure your reception party is one to remember.

Neo Trio

Genres: Classic Hits, Top 40, Funk & Soul

The Neo Trio is an Auckland band featuring three of Auckland’s best live musicians. The band performs music by Top 40 chart toppers like Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran and Maroon 5, as well as timeless classics by The Beatles, James Brown and Stevie Wonder. The band’s high quality musicianship combined with 3 part vocal harmonies means they are much more than the sum of their parts, with a full band sound in a smaller package.

Lee played at our wedding in the trio - they were amazing! Absolutely nailed it, had everyone up dancing from start to finish, with all the usual crowed pleasers. He was so so easy to deal with, punctual, and professional. Our guests enjoyed every minute and we had so many compliments - made our day and our d-floor awesome. Thank you!.

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.

Chris and the boys were a HUGE hit on the day during our annual Fletcher Building Round the Bays post event party. We had loads of positive feedback both on the day and post event, with lots of requests for a repeat performance in 2018. Music selection was perfect for this group with the band gave our 1200 pax marque (second biggest at Madills Farm) great atmosphere. Chris personalised parts of the songs bringing humour to this great playlist. The boys were punctual, friendly and accommodating and I will definitely be booking them again for future Fletcher Building Events plus recommending to friends, family and colleagues. Thanks again for a professional, successful gig guys!

Bracu Music - The Goods

The Goods

Genres: Classic Hits, Top 40, Pop

The Goods have one simple rule - if it's a good song, they’ll make it a Goods song. Whether it’s from the 60s, 80s or today, if they find a tune they like, they’ll add it to their playlist. From Cake by The Ocean to Call Me Al, Dancing with a Stranger to Dead or Alive, Let’s Dance to Living on a Prayer, The Goods know all the good ones! The guys pack the punch of a full band into a trio, with 2 vocalists and an array of clever technology giving them the ability to play just about anything.

We engaged 'The Goods' for our corporate Christmas function for approx 350 staff and we couldn't be happier. In the lead up and on the day they were professional and very easy to deal with. They created a great vibe with excellent songs that appealed to all ages - a great mix of classic tunes and modern hits, executed with skill, and a very full sound for a three piece band! High quality sound at the right volume, and though it wasn't planned as a dancing event, people couldn't help but dance! Great feedback from staff as 'The Goods' helped to create a memorable event - highly recommended!

belle isle PROFILE


Genres: Top 40, Pop, Acoustic

Auckland based singer-songwriter LUNA blends Spanish and English in her music to showcase elements from both sides of her cultural identity. Her music fuses reggaeton, jazz and RnB and it tells stories of youth and love. Raised by artistic parents, Luna was continuously encouraged to explore artistic expression and she began singing and dancing at a very young age. Always drawing inspiration from the Latin American music heard in her family home and the popular music on the radio.

Smokey and effervescent with raw declarations of honesty. Luna’s rasp is reminiscent of a pioneer vocalist, bleeding her heart out in each breath.

Bracu Music - Allana


Genres: Jazz & Latin, Pop, Classic Hits

Allana and her band can appear in a number of formats, from acoustic duo (with guitar or keyboard) to trio for more intimate situations, to a six-piece performance band. Allana is of NZ Māori descent, and is well known as a Māori artist for her performances of some of her favourite standards in Māori and composing her own original lyrics.

Allana Goldsmith Group performed at a recent formal evening event at the museum. I cannot recommend them strongly enough. They chose a perfect repertoire for the evening and varied their songs according to the mood of the crowd. The selection ranged from ambient atmospheric to uptempo that had guests dancing at the end of the night. One of the group even played some taonga puoro (traditional Maori instruments) to connect to the kaupapa of the event, and when coupled with Allana's beautiful voice it was truly magical!
