Band References

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the great entertainment on Saturday night. Everyone had a fantastic night, and that was mostly due to the great vibe you guys created with your music. We've had many friends comment that it was the best party they've been to for ages and that the band was "epic"!! We'll certainly be recommending you to anyone looking for a great band in the future. Thanks to you all for your friendly, professional manner and for making our celebration a great night to remember for all of us!

From our very first introduction to The Buskers, it was clear that Danny and his group provide a slick and professional service. Danny's high standards were evident at our consultation meeting, in which he was attentive to the needs and requests we had for performing at our wedding reception. We received great correspondence from the group in the lead up to the day. When faced with some planning difficulties imposed by our venue, Danny went above and beyond to work together with the venue host to figure out a way to still provide a great service. On the actual wedding night - the band was incredible! Contemporary music, excellent sound quality and great musicians. We had guests on the dance floor for the entire 2.5 hours of live music and they loved every minute! We couldn't have wished for any better. A huge thanks!

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. We had the most epic night and we have had loads of comments from guests about how good you guys were. Your set list was fantastic and you certainly got everybody up on the dance floor. Big respect going out to the saxophonist - he was awesome! We would highly recommend you to anyone. You were also very personable and professional to work with.

Thank you so much for your wonderful performance on Saturday night. You guys were outstanding! Your set list was brilliant and catered for the age range superbly, and we loved the unique sound you guys gave to all those classic songs. We have been to six weddings so far this summer and I felt your guys performance set our one apart from all the other ones we have been to. Will recommend you guys to anyone looking for a band.

We just wanted to say thanks so much to you and the other "Buskers" for playing at our wedding, you were awesome! We've had so much feedback about how great you were and a lot of people who don't dance were up dancing & enjoying themselves, so well done. And a really big thanks for learning our first dance song, you did an incredible job - if only we were as good at dancing! You're a very professional, organised operation. Thanks heaps for everything, it has been a pleasure dealing with you. The Buskers will be our number one recommendation for a band, for any event.

We had The Buskers play at our Wedding at Abbeville Estate - they were fantastic! Danny was extremely professional and easy to deal with. The music was a good spread of old and new that everyone enjoyed. We would not hesitate to recommend The Buskers to others.

Danny, I want to extend a huge thanks to you and the rest of the band for making our wedding an evening to remember. You had our guests, age 2 to 92, up dancing from start to finish. You were professional, organised and easy to deal with and went over and above with everything you did for us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.

When I was looking for a band to play at my 50th The Buskers were recommended to me by a friend who plays in a band himself. Danny was very professional and made a special trip out to our place to check out the venue well in advance, he even arranged for the stage to be set up and removed, which was a great help. Most of all, the quality of the music was excellent with lots of guests dancing until the end. I've had heaps of unsolicited comments from friends and family about how great the band was. They were all exceptionally professional and took great pride in their performance and really helped with the success of the party.

We recently had our company mid winter Xmas dinner at Sails Restaurant . We hired The Buskers (4 piece band) as our entertainment . There were approx. 120 guests made up of clients and staff ranging in age from early 20s to late 70s so I was a bit nervous initially as to whether the band would appeal to such a wide age group. Danny and his band had all age groups on the dance floor. The entertainment turned out to be a huge success with lots of positive comments and praise. The variety in the playlist was amazing. Danny’s professional attitude made it a hassle free experience. If you want professional top quality music entertainment hire The Buskers.

My husband and I have very different tastes in music, so I was a little apprehensive about choosing a band for our wedding. I found The Buskers through a Google search, and listened to some of their music online. I was impressed and booked them for our big day. Danny and the band were very accommodating, and discussed all our options for our special day well in advance. I found them professional and thorough, nothing was left to chance. Our venue was different to the standard venue ( a boat), but Danny just took it in his stride. Nothing was an issue, which was so lovely, and really set our minds at ease. When our big day came, there was the band, all set up and ready to go. Our guests were most impressed by the choice of music played. There was something for everyone. The Buskers have a great play list to choose from. Thank you guys! We will happily recommend you to family and friends.

We had Danny playing at our corporate pre-match function before the All Blacks vs England test match. He was fantastic, created such a cool/smooth environment for our guests of 200. His professionalism and talented ability was highly visible and he was admired by all. He was extremely easy to work with and very adaptable though out the function. I would highly recommend him, we have already booked him in for our next function and can’t wait to hear him play again.

The Buskers played for us at our staff Christmas party. The band has some real talent and Danny is great on vocals. The set list went down well, and an audience ranging in age and background was kept on the dance floor. At all times the band was professional to deal with. I would recommend.

Many thanks for an excellent performance on Saturday evening, the quality and sound were superb. We've had many unsolicited compliments from guests regarding the band and your contribution was a major influence on making it an evening to remember for Dee and all our guests. Please pass on our thanks to all the band members and thanks for being so flexible!

Danny and the boys played at our Wedding and they were truly the icing on the cake of a perfect day! They played an amazing acoustic set in the afternoon (general consensus was that they played John Mayer better than John Mayer himself!) which got everyone in the mood for a rocking good time and the full band blew us away later on with hit after hit. My Dad and some of his mates used to play in a band so are a tough crowd to please and they're still raving about The Buskers incredible skills and sounds over a year later. We didn't want the same old setlist that every other covers band seems to play down at the pub and these guys added their own magic to a great list and read the crowd like a dream. Danny was incredibly flexible to deal with and Dad was throwing cash at them at the end to try and get them to keep playing (unfortunately venue had a curfew!). Would recommend these guys to anyone wanting the night of their lives!!

The Buskers were a life saver! Breaking free of string quartets and background instrumental bands, our annual staff Christmas function finally had some vivacity, dancing and excellent entertainment. The Buskers took playing to a crowd of academics ranging in all ages in their stride and had everyone praising their well tuned set list. It was wonderful to not have to give direction as they read the crowd so perfectly. I will definitely be booking Danny and the guys again for a variety of events our team caters to, and I look forward to hearing them play again!

My wife and I hired The Buskers for our wedding. They had everyone up and dancing in no time. I liked them so much I have used them for a black tie event for the Entrepreneurs’ Organisation. They were very professional, and had the crowd dancing all night. Their set list is interesting and appealing to a wide range of people, and being talented musicians, they give each cover their own little twist. Highly recommended!

The buskers were the perfect pick for our awards party. With a vast repetoire of songs they read the audience perfectly and played hit after hit ensuring that the dancefloor was full and that everyone had a great time. They were so good we have hired them for this years event! Entrepreneurs Organisation.
Caroline Henty

Our firm hired The Buskers as a trio for our 2009 staff Christmas party. From start to finish, the band were very pleasant to deal with and professional at all times. We were extremely pleased with not only their performance on the night (our staff loved them and danced non-stop!), but also with their friendly and efficient communication leading up to the event. We would, without hesitation, recommend the The Buskers to anyone looking to hire a band. They are a great bunch of guys and we will definitely use them again in the future!

Thanks once again for playing for us at the annual NZI Sustainable Business Awards. It’s always such pleasure to work with you all and you contribute to creating a really fun and lively event.
We really appreciate your flexibility, great timing and organization, friendliness, and help with working out the right feel for the music on the night. We will look forward to working with you again in the future.

If you are looking for professional, talented and versatile performers to entertain your next function then I can highly recommend this duo. Danny and Luke played a broad range of songs and they were able to set the pace and volume of their music to suit the changing mood of the Awards Evening.
