What can be said about The Bubblemen that Christchurch and the South Island doesn’t already know?
The go-to covers band for the last twenty years was founded by Irish import and Christchurch music mogul Mike Kane back in the early nineties, and its legend continues to grow.

Several strong and professional lineups of three, four and five piece bands over the years have garnered a solid reputation resulting in the current lineup which has received a remarkable following by established bars, corporate functions and the pub and club scene for the past 6 years whilst enduring the recent earthquakes which has changed our city.

The present line up is a powerhouse 3 piece, with Christchurch Frontman & guitar legend Mike Arthur (Guitar/Vocals), Simon Nunn (Drumset/Vocals) and Joe Vaise(Bass Guitar/Vocals) occasionally joined by Tim Driver (Keyboards). With a large repertoire of great music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s all the way through to recent hits, they can cater to most musical tastes with a fun and original attitude, coming to rock the house!

Be it your next corporate function, wedding, birthday, small private function or the local pub, you can rely on The Bubblemen to create the best time for you and your friends.

  “Here to bring the good times back”

Reviews

Please pass on a BIG thank you to The Bubblemen. They were absolutely fantastic and so obliging. They just made our evening and created the perfect atmosphere. Many thanks again. Heidi and Ben - 16 October 2015

Just to say belated thanks for arranging the Bubblemen to play at our wedding on Feb 4th. They were really great and everyone has commented on how good the night was because of the great music. I would highly recommend them to others for weddings and would be happy to give references or talk to anyone thinking about it.Thanks again, Pip and Paul Krauss. - 4 February 2015

Just wanted to say thank you so much for your help in organising ‘Bubblemen’ for us. We had a fantastic night, they played great music and the dance floor was full from the first dance! I will be recommending them to anyone who is looking for a band, everyone at the wedding commented on how good they were.Thanks again Lizzie - 8 November 2014

The Bubblemen were great on Saturday night. Not having heard them before I was not sure what to expect and had put a lot of faith in your recommendation. They certainly did not let you down and I would be happy to recommend them or have them again for another event. The night rocked! They had everyone dancing with a playlist that was a little different to many other bands but was really enjoyable. The night fizzed and bubbled.
