Client Feedback

I don't think we could've picked a better band, I remember looking around and absolutely no one was sitting down so that is a job well done! We had so many good comments about you guys ... Thank you so much for playing a part in making our night as fun as it was!" - Anna and Andrew, Wedding
Hey, thanks heaps! We had a best night ever & nobody wanted it to end LOL! The feedback I’ve had from everyone is that they had a FANTASTIC night & everyone was asking the name of the band! You guys absolutely rock! - Michelle, Wedding
Thanks so much for helping to make our xmas party such a success, feedback from everyone is that you guys are awesome! - Deb, Christmas Party
To the best wedding / covers band - EVER!!! We wanted to, no absolutely had to, write this testimonial of our own accord to say how incredibly impressed and super stoked we were when you played our wedding. What you had prepared was killer and everyone was up on the dance floor all night. It wasn't you’re typical “Wedding Set List” it was fresh, varied, modern, had the classics, and was super polished. We also booked you to play an acoustic set for us during our Saturday BBQ for 3 hours and what was planned as a simple easy BBQ turned in to another amazing day / night party. The song choices for Saturday were bang on and had people approaching us all day expressing how amazing the band was. So from Simone and I both thank you for helping us create the wedding we dreamed of, rock on guys!! - Simone and Gavin, Wedding
We were very impressed with our band "The Relatives". They were very professional in terms of setting up prior to the ceremony and liasing with the venue manager. But best of all they were are fantastic band and great fun! We only had a small wedding (60 people) but they got everyone dancing! We had a couple of friends who are professional musicians and even they were very impressed. More than happy to be a reference for them if needed. Kat Heath, Wedding
You guys provided the music at my son Chris's wedding in Wanganui on the weekend. Just wanted to comment on what a great job you did. Brilliant selection of music and first class musicians. Couldn't have been better. Brendon Deere, Wedding
We recently booked The Relatives, a local band from Wellington to play at a private function. They had the whole crowd absolutely rocking the entire night. I would highly recommend this band to anyone, and if we’re ever back in Wellington doing another gig, we’ll certainly book the boys again! - Pam Jenkinson, Corporate Event
Everything was great thanks - as you'll know we got them to stay on longer! We've had great feedback, everyone loved them smile. Rebecca Dobbs, Corporate Event
Taupo was NOTHING compared to you legends. Honestly, I know I just got married, like a minute ago, but I want to marry each and every one of you. But I’ll just settle for having you in my life as the best entertainment a girl could ask for on her wedding day!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, I don’t know what else to say or how else to express it. I am insanely grateful. You guys rock! - Kirsty O'Dowd, Wedding
