Soul 9 Yards
Genres: Pop, Funk & Soul, R'n'B
Auckland based Soul 9 Yards have been performing their mix of Soul, Motown and 90s hip hop and r’n’b since 2017. The band perform soulful cuts by the likes of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and Amy Winehouse, combining Allana Goldsmith’s honey dipped vocals with a backing band of some of Auckland’s baddest cats. Their music is raw, real and authentic, with plenty of room for every member to improvise and go where the songs lead them.
“What’s a party without awesome sounds? Soul 9 yards had my friends and family up dancing from early on and I loved seeing my mum dancing with everyone all night long. Allana wow what a voice so beautiful and the setlist couldn’t have been more perfect for this 50 year girl! Busy night and I just wish I could go back and replay it all over, everyone commented what an awesome band! Please pass on my thanks for making my celebration so memorable. Thanks also to findaband what a great website when trying to choose from all the amazing talent, thank you for organising it all for me.”

Seven musicians, one groove. PepperJacks is an Auckland-based 7-piece covers band featuring Auckland’s hottest musical talent. With undisputed queen of the scene Clo Chaperon on the mic, and an A-list killer horn section, the PepperJacks sound is massive, upbeat and indisputably funky. Pepperjacks are well suited to upmarket weddings, and are on our list of Auckland wedding bands.
“Pepperjacks played at our Annual Awards on Saturday night. They were very professional and friendly. Their sound and set list was perfect for an awards function and got most people up dancing. Would definitely recommend using Pepperjacks at your event!”

All Night Long
Genres: Classic Hits, Top 40, Acoustic
Allenby Park is an acoustic duo offering beautiful acoustic music with a generous helping of groove. Whether the vibe is a laid back summer afternoon or something with a bit more dancefloor flavour, they have it covered. Allenby Park’s songlist includes John Legend, Ed Sheeran, Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Toto, Prince and Bob Marley, and truly has something for everyone.
“Allenby Park performed during our welcome function which greeted guests from America, to New Zealand. Their ability to showcase the tones of New Zealand and set the mood to the crowd was impressive. Our client was shocked when so many guests started dancing later on in the evening after saying they were not a ‘dancy crowd’. Thank you Sam and Manoah, truly spectacular..”

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!”

Honeytrap create an upbeat atmosphere full of good vibes with a unique style and stunning vocals. Performing songs from the likes of Ariana Grande, Drake, Childish Gambino, Rihanna and more, Honeytrap bring their own twist to modern pop and top 40 favourites.
“We had the Meteors play at our wedding for three sets in the evening. They are an excellent band and hugely talented but what impressed me the most was their choice of set list. We had not planned a set list with them before the wedding but their song choices were perfect to get people dancing immediately, and later on in the evening to create a wonderful party atmosphere. The Meteors helped make our day perfect for us!”
