If you're considering live music for your wedding reception then you really can't go wrong with auckland covers band 'The Buskers'.
It's often a misconception that hiring a band over a DJ will be a lot more expensive but that's not necessarily the case. DJ prices while generally a bit cheaper are for the most part not significantly cheaper, and while there are some great DJ's out there, there is a lot to be said for the raw, visceral energy you get from a really pumping live band.
The Buskers are run by musician Danny McCrum and are renowned for their professionalism, energy and tight funky sound. Their show is dynamic and responsive knowing exactly when to get the crowd moving and when to slow things down. Their set covers a mix of rock, funk, soul and pop from a wide range of artists e.g. Stevie Wonder, Daft Punk, Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, The Beatles, Ben Harper, The Kinks, Michael Jackson, The Police, Bruno Mars, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Beyonce, Pearl Jam, Dire Straits, The Killers, Supergroove, Duffy, The Dandy Warhols, Bob Marley and many more.
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!
