about The band

party hire corporate covers band

  • We are able to cater for all events big or small.  That’s not an exaggeration - birthday parties, weddings, corporate functions, Christmas parties, festivals, even a day at the races!

  • We play a vast range of popular music and can easily play up to 4 hours including background music. 

  • We are an 8 piece band ensuring a full, energetic performance.  We can also expand to a full scale show band with bigger brass, more vocals and even percussion.

  • We can supply our own lighting and sound system for events with up to 200 people.  For larger events we have industry partners who we work with on a regular basis so can join the dots for all of your production needs.  

  • We aim to keep people dancing all night by cutting those pesky gaps between songs to an absolute minimum - sometimes non existent. Less talking, more playing means value for money.

  • We use in-ear-monitors whenever possible to aid us in achieving the best sound at all times.

  • Individually our members work and have worked with a who’s who of the New Zealand Music Industry - Shapeshifter, Trinity Roots, Kora, Bliss ‘n’ Eso (AU), The Pink Floyd Experience, Rob Ruha, The Black Seeds, Hollie Smith, Aaradhna, Iva Lamkum, The RNZAF Band, Rodger Fox and so on; the list goes on and keeps getting longer every year.

  • We are powered by top quality, professional musicians with an absolute wealth of experience to draw on.

"...We also had amazing service from The Electric Avenue Band, they made everything so easy and were so easy to communicate with."

Kelly and Simon, Wedding

"Hands down the best money we spent on our wedding. These guys kept the dance floor packed all night and were happy to learn a new song for our first dance.  110% recommend 👌"

Laura McKay, Wedding

"You guys rocked it - guaranteed hot topic of conversation around the coffee machine for the next few weeks. What a way to throw ourselves into the festive season! Thanks to you all for being amazing 🤩😍🤩"

Jess, KiwiBank

“Just wanted to say thank you for all of your amazing work at our wedding last Friday. It all went perfectly - the ceremony music, the jazz, setting up the PA for speeches/song and then the band later. We are massively grateful to you and the band for making our special day such a musical one! We hope you had a good time and had those well earned drinks!"

Sam and Fliss, Wedding
