The Gramophone Band can bring you a magical evening of vintage styled music, they perform classic songs from the last 100 years. It’s a combination of modern songs played in a vintage style plus all the old favourites. They can be anything from asophisticated accompaniment to cocktails and canopes to a rollicking good-time party band.The Gramophone Band was inspired by the magic of a wind-up picnic gramophone boxand a suitcase of old 10inch Jazz records that theyfound ata garage sale in Timaru.The band enjoys performingthe sweet dulcet tones and the toe tapping tunes of the 1920’s through to the 1960’s. They also perform vintage versions of contemporary artists. If you want to hear retro versions of Bowie and Beyonce on ukulele and double bass - you’ve come to the right place.

"Thank you Gareth, Katie, Jonathan and Johnny for the spectacular performance last Saturday night for our Great Gatsby Ball at the Civic - you guys were a hit! You were a perfect fit for our theme, I would also be more than happy to work with you guys again for any other function. Vocals were beautiful and you guys looked great on stage - Many thanks." Ramona Vanderlee - Russell McVeagh - 6 June 2013

The Gramophone Band were absolutely brilliant. Gareth and the other musicians were totally helpful throughout - all of the guests were very complimentary about the music and everyone enjoyed dancing to their music. We will certainly recommend Gareth and his team to anyone of our friends who need music in the future. Bill Holmes - 15 February 2014

I just wanted to thank you and the band once again. I knew you would be great - but you were better than that - you were incredible! You were the highlight of the whole week long event and I can't thank you enough for not only being incredible entertainers but also one of the loveliest people I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Shelley Waghorn Event Management - 20 February 2016
