Stu provided excellent entertainment, a professional setup and service. He can read the room well, and played songs to suit the event. I would highly recommend Stu and use him again for future events!

Meet Stu

Good music has been a staple in my life for as long as I can remember; my heart beats along to the music.

After 4+ years traveling the world with a guitar in hand, and after 8+ years in a corporate, (mostly) desk-bound career I decided to take a chance, follow my dreams and make a living out of music. I also started a yoga studio in Hobsonville, called Kanuka Yoga Space.

From playing live music in bars, restaurants, birthday parties, Christmas celebrations, weddings, farmers markets, busking on Auckland's Queen Street, all the way to North Island tours playing original music, NZ On Air music videos, sponsorship contracts and Spotify singles, I am motivated to up my game on every occasion.

At present, you'll find me:

  • Gigging weekly at iconic Auckland venues, private events and weddings

  • Creating a super exciting live DJ act with my good friend Ant Tarrant; producing our own music, spinning them on the latest Pioneer DJ controllers and jamming our live guitars, keyboards and vocals over the top

  • Producing new music with Ableton

  • Teaching and practicing yoga, along with managing the studio, our yoga retreats and events

I'm proud of my musical talent, of my ability to create positive relationships and networks, and confident I can nail the live music and/or DJ sounds at your next event.

 

My sound equipment and lighting is of the highest standards; QSC K10.2 PA speakers, Martin acoustic guitar, Boss looping station, Pioneer RX2 DJ Controller and a Yamaha 12 Channel Mixer.

Stu was fantastic in how he read the vibe of the evening and played great tunes to compliement our 2nd birthday party. We're looking forward to having him back!
