Covers Band - Auckland
Would you agree that there’s nothing quite like the atmosphere of a great live band?
A dance floor jam-packed with happy people dancing and singing makes for an incredible event. If you want an unforgettable night that goes off with a bang, you need to get the right live band. Blue Steel are a passionate, professional group of musicians who have performed on stage throughout NZ and around the world. We have performed together at over 300 corporate events and weddings, and we absolutely love doing what we do! Our band members have performed on television, at dozens of vineyards and regularly appear at Auckland’s finest venues (Mudbrick, Cable Bay, The Langham, The Museum, Viaduct Event Centre and many more). We’ve written hit songs for radio, composed music for TV commercials and toured throughout New Zealand alongside some of New Zealand’s biggest musical acts.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Sam from Blue Steel. You were extremely easy to work with, and understood our requirements. I was very impressed with the promptness of your response to our questions and concerns. As for the music, it was everything that we wanted. Blue Steel really read the crowd and started off with some chill out music (that wasn't too loud) and as the evening the progressed and the drinks flowed I was glad to see everyone out on the dance floor having a good time. The band sounded awesome and lead vocals were fantastic!! One thing that a lot of people commented on was that you were playing all their favourite songs. You couldn't have had a more diverse audience than the International Roaming Delegates from literally all round the world - but somehow you managed to please everyone. The volume was perfect, loud enough to enjoy but not so loud that you couldn't hold a conversation. Overall, the band was fabulous and it was such a fantastic evening! Thank you again for entertaining us all - we will definitely use you again! Natalie Olsen 2degrees Mobile Two Degrees - Corporate Event 2011 - 10 September 2011
Hi Sam Thank you for a great gig on Thursday. You guys were not only professional, quick to set up and sharp on stage but you really got the crowd going and dancing all night long. Great songs, great sound and a really tight performance – very impressive. You guys have a great future in music! Thanks again and I would have no problem recommending you to anyone looking for a great band to entertain at any function. Please pass my thanks on to the rest of the band and I’ll definitely be in touch if we ever need a band in Auckland again. Royal NZ Plunket Society - Corporate Event 2011 - 15 October 2011
Blue Steel were a great choice of entertainment for our Annual Excellence Awards. They were professional and a pleasure to deal with – and provided a great soundtrack for our evening of celebration. Plus they didn’t complain once about the horrific display of uncoordinated dancing we subjected them to. Kristyn Andrew - Colliers International Colliers International - Corporate Event 2011 -
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with organising the entertainment for our ball this past Saturday. The event was a great success and everyone who attended was very impressed with your band. I have been getting a lot of really good feedback about your performance and we will definitely recommend that you be used again at our corporate events. Thank you again for everything. Julia Erakovich - Bell Gully Law Bell Gully - Corporate Event 2011 - 16 July 2011
Everyone loved the band and has said awesome things about you. I was very impressed with how you all got a little wedding party that loud singing Exponents! I think you guys playing made people get off their butts and have a good time so thank you!! Iain and Kayleigh - Wedding 2011 Blue Steel was everything we had hoped for and more. We and our guests all had a fantastic night. You and the guys were brilliant, a real hit with our guests, and totally created the fun party atmosphere we'd hoped for. All up, two very satisfied clients. We will highly recommend you to our friends. Rhonda and Matt - Wedding 2012 - 21 January 2012
Hi Sam, We were really happy with the band and we got lots of great feedback on the song selection - thanks! Hope you've got a busy year lined up and if we need a band again, I'll let you know. Steve and Renee - Wedding 2011 - 22 January 2011
Thank you so much for all the hard work you and Blue Steel put into making our wedding a great success. I have never been to a wedding before where the dance floor was packed for most of the evening so you far exceeded my expectations. I found your band very professional and have already recommended you to other friends for upcoming weddings and birthday parties. The songs you played were perfect and you really played to the crowd. Melissa Elliott - Wedding 2011 - 12 February 2011
Hi Sam I just wanted to thank you so much for playing at our function. Even though we didn't get everyone on the dance floor (engineers are hopeless when it comes to getting up on the dance floor!) the night was a huge success. Thank you so much for being part of it. I will definitely be recommending you to others. Adele Taylor - Corporate Event 2012 -
