Wedding Music Testimonial

Hanna + Seamus

Wedding at Bayly's Farm in Paihia 

Live Music for Canapès

I couldn't recommend Stu more highly. He is super professional and so easy to deal with. He played an awesome acoustic set in the afternoon which was such a cool vibe and a real highlight.

He communicated with us really well a
nd was super organised & chill setting up in what was a bit of a stressful morning.

Stu performed at our wedding on the

weekend and he was awesome!

 

He managed and performed the whole day with a high-quality one-man-band performance, and then killed it as the DJ later in the evening.

 

Highly recommend him!

Bamboo Baby - Live Band Set

Bamboo Baby exceeded expectations

and were an absolute blast for our Graduation Ceremony!

 

Stu was a great communicator and made the logistics of having a live band easy for us amidst the busy schedule of

organising our event.

 

We’re looking forward to working with Bamboo Baby again for future events and would highly recommend them!

Corporate Awards Night

Full Event - Live Music + DJ Package

Stu was the perfect vibe for our annual party. He played live music for the start of the evening, then all the hits for the dance floor; he's a talented musician that's for sure!

 

Stu was great at reading the room and played and played a diverse range of music.

 

Thanks, Stu, for making our company party an awesome night!

Live Music Review

Kiran Patel

Private Event at MoveSpace, Mt Eden

DJ Set

Stu is the type of guy you can rely on for consistent good vibes. Whether the crowd was up for a boogie, or a chill parooz through the event, Stu created an atmosphere they didn't know they could love so much.

I highly recommend Stu for any event you're running, an absolute breeze to work with, and brought so much joy to our attendees.
