" What an amazing wedding season we have just had for 2016! Our busiest and best by far and we wish to sincerely thank all the wonderful NZ brides and grooms for having us help celebrate their special day- and of course all your guests for packing out those dancefloors and busting out some great moves! Fun was had by all and that's the name of the game. We have certainly been here,there and everywhere from lakeside to beachside,barns,schools,wineries, marquees and waterfalls in the big haul was Tauranga on a Friday, Napier on Sat and Taupo on Sunday, all of them took the "Ultimate Wedding" all day package and we even got keyboard man Gav back home in the wee hours in time for the birth of his baby daughter! The afternoon duo featuring keys/acoustic guitar has been a well received addition to the wedding package and with such a beautiful sunny Kiwi summer it was fantastic to see guests enjoying the sounds with a cold drink and some fine looking canapes. Looking so forward to the coming season which is filling up nicely....get in touch now to see if we are available for your special day. Make it one to remember with 'Five O'Clock Shadow"   Eugene
