Reviews

The band went well, everyone liked them once they got bopping. Bob Walters - LPMNZ - 6 October 2016

Hey there Bring in the Band - just wanted to say thanks for joining us at our Weddings Open Day on Saturday at Castaways. The Castaways team and our guests truly enjoyed your talented music and the song selection you performed was perfect for setting the mellow tone for the day. We'll happily recommend you to our brides and grooms. Cheers! Castaways - 29 August 2011

The band made our Christmas party. They got everyone dancing right from the beginning, people were raving about them after the event. They made our event which all in all was our best Christmas party to date! We will definitely use your service in the future and you very easy to deal with in regards to booking and the organisation/requirements of the band, sorted all details directly with venue. The Team @ Goodman Fielder - 9 December 2016

Bring in the Band absolutely made our wedding reception. They responded to every request instantly and had an awesome sense of humour. Our guests of all ages were dancing until midnight and wanted more, I can't wait to have another event to have these guys to play at. Sheridan Hancock - Wedding - 7 January 2017

We were very very pleased with the band. Excellent! Everyone seemed to enjoy thoroughly and we really appreciate that the band members were happy to share their equipment with the UCG group and cooperated the whole time. A big thank you to Sam and the team for making it happen! Universal Communications Group - 20 November 2015

The band were great! They took initiative in their choice of songs and read the crowd very well. They created a really fun and energetic dynamic to the event . Faye McIlroy - SGS NZ Ltd - 10 December 2015

The band was absolutely fantastic and totally made our wedding! I've never had so many people tell me how wonderful they were, and they had all of our guests on the dance floor all night. My friends have said they've never been to a wedding where so many people were dancing. John was lovely, friendly, professional and the whole band were excellent at knowing exactly how to ensure everyone was having a fantastic party. Amazingly, we found out that he was from the same place as us in the UK, so we had lots to talk about! I have already recommended them to everyone I know and cannot say enough great things about them. Thank you so so much for an utterly brilliant night! Amy Richardson - 9 January 2016

Thanks Jacob, the band were superb. We really can't recommend them enough for any occasion, but especially for those looking for a professional, polished and very fun wedding band with the X factor. The guys were brilliant, obviously very talented and also very tolerant of the requests for repeated encores from our more enthusiastic (or perhaps harmlessly obnoxious) guests! I've also really enjoyed dealing with you and found our correspondence to be straightforward and easy. So thank you for your assistance too. Vanessa & Ken - Wedding 2016 - 5 March 2016

The band were fabulous! They had all our guests up and dancing with the first song and everyone raved about them! We would highly recommend them to anyone! Catherine Heald - Wedding - 23 October 2016

Bring In The Band were great for our corporate Christmas Party. We are a professional organisation that wanted to have a lot of fun on the night and the band delivered. Our CEO (who is a musician himself), through to our gen Y staff members thought they were great. Corey McCarthy - UCG Hilton - 26 November 2016
