New Zealand’s Find A Band Celebrates Seven Years Online

( Launched in 2008, New Zealand’s Find A Band has been connecting audiences and event planners with some of the best musicians in the country for seven years now. Unlike some other online booking services open to any band that joins up, Find A Band handpicks its member bands to guarantee talent and satisfaction. Wedding receptions, corporate events, retirement parties and birthdays have all benefitted from the services of Find A Band.

“We’re more than just an ‘eBay for bands’,” explains Sam Browne, Director of Find A Band. “All our acts have been auditioned and specifically selected to be amongst the best in New Zealand. Being listed on the Find A Band website is a mark of quality. When an event planner needs live music, they can rest assured that they are always hiring professional, engaging, talented acts. We’ve been doing this a long time now and have established a top-notch talent roster, with a band for every taste and occasion.”

Find A Band features an easy to use search system to find the right style, whether jazz, rock, country or whatever. Each band page has audio and video samples, testimonials from prior gigs and an extensive song list so talent buyers can know exactly what they can expect. Once the event planner has decided on a band, they can click the “Get A Quote” button and the staff at Find A Band will get back in touch as fast as possible.

Some of the testimonials for Find A Band include:

“A huge thank you to Blue Steel for doing a sterling job at the awards dinner, the crowd loved them – lots of dancing! Great band, good guys – I look forward to working with you guys again soon.”
— Pippi Hendl, IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces

“Everyone loved the band and has said awesome things about you. I was very impressed with how you all got a little wedding party that loud singing Exponents! I think you guys playing made people get off their butts and have a good time so thank you!”
— Iain and Kayleigh, Wedding Reception

“I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with organising the entertainment for our ball this past Saturday. The event was a great success and everyone who attended was very impressed with your band. I have been getting a lot of really good feedback about your performance and we will definitely recommend that you be used again at our corporate events. Thank you again for everything.”
