The best Entertainers for your event

Talent Online is where you will find all your entertainment needs for events in Australia and New Zealand. We offer the best Entertainers, Speakers & MC’S for Corporate Events, Conferences, Parties, Weddings, Outdoor Festivals and Christmas functions.

We also offer Casino Nights, Dinner Theatre Shows and Staff Christmas Party Ideas for small groups.

For a stress free party we have pre-packaged adult party themes & dinner theatre shows where you choose the theme, tell us your budget and the number of guests, then we’ll work out a program to last the full evening or to work around your speeches and awards – it’ll be all the fun and entertainment you need.

Having Entertainers and Speakers in Australia and New Zealand means you can take your pick of the best Talent from both sides of the Tasman

Are you going to get performers that actually show up when you asked them to? Will they look like the photos and footage you’ve viewed? Will the band sound great live and like the sound files online? We don’t boast the largest collection to browse through, we prefer to be fussy and only give you the best, most reliable performing artists, assuring you an easier decision topped with a great professional performance.

"Tongue & Groove made the party a huge success with dancing from start to finish. I am not from Auckland originally and didn’t have any idea where to start in seeking a band for my 50th (60s theme!) and you came recommended by a friend who is an Event Manager. I would definitely recommend ‘Tongue & Groove’ for their brilliant sound, awesome song choice, and being great guys to work with."

"Tongue & Groove had virtually all of the attendees up dancing and enjoying the music. The group was totally professional, started exactly on time and never missed a beat. They played for 2 and a half hours without a break and just made the event top shelf. Our attendees all told us how much they enjoyed it and both old and young raved about how much fun it was"
Garth Wylie, Executive Director, Direct Selling Association of NZ
"What a professional band. The music was fabulous catering for a wide variety of guests aged from 10 to 75. Everyone got up to dance and didn't stop the whole night. Tongue and Groove were fantastic and really made the evening. All of our guests and ourselves were so impressed with them, the quality of the music, the sound, and their amazing voices!! Thank you guys so much for the fantastic evening. You made our night!!"

Wendy Morris-Vette, Jones Fee
"I cannot think of any band that has been better than Tongue & Groove. The mix of songs and the quality of sound were terrific, and I think you only had to look at the faces of the people dancing (and listening) to know that they were having a great time."
Steven Cahan, Accounting Assoc. of Australia and New Zealand.
"It is no mystery to me why you are one of the most sought after bands in the business...an excellent repertoire and high energy."

"Thank you for the most amazing night you guys gave us for our wedding reception. We had so much fun dancing with everyone of all ages on the night and I will never forget it! Thanks also for letting my Dad get up and play a song with you – that was a high-light of the night for me watching Dad play – and he probably felt really cool too!! Thanks for giving me so many fun memories from the ‘party’ part of our wedding! Friends of ours who came to the wedding who are looking for a band have already been asking us about you – and we will certainly be recommending you guys!"
Stacy Beadle
"Sir Ray Avery was fantastic. He understood exactly what we were after and how we wanted to achieve this. He weaved this message into his speech while retaining his own sense of style and the messages that he wanted to convey. Our audience appreciated his humour, candour, insights and most importantly the message he was wishing to convey. I found Sir Ray very easy and pleasant to deal with. His responses were fast, efficient and happy to discuss anything that we needed to ensure we got the result we were after."
J Clarke - Chevron New Zealand
"Great feedback on Sir Ray and very well received. The content was just right with some great stories and insights. The brief was followed perfectly and really resonated with the audience. Timing, content… all great. The process leading up to the event was easy and well managed. Trying to secure a speaker late in the day can be difficult but everything was done in a professional and timely manner. Sir Ray also spent time listening to what we were after prior to the event and duly got it spot on."
M Iwaskow - Institute of Logistics and Transport
"The audience responded very well to Sir Ray, he is humorous but has a good message. He followed the brief very well and got people thinking about what we can do."
Sue Cummings - Fonterra

She captured everyone's attention with her personal insights, quick wit and humour, and a glimpse into a world most of us only dream of. The feedback was very positive and many commented that they had taken away something to think about. Thank you for your thought-provoking insights into leadership."
Hamilton City Council
"The combined staff Christmas dinner, show and dance was a truly wonderful night. From the moment we arrived we knew we were in for a great night! We were greeted by the actors who were hilarious and really helped break the ice. The evening flowed beautifully from beginning to end. The room was set beautifully, the buffet dinner was plentiful and yummy, the show was hilarious and the DJ played a great selection of music. The bar prices were also really reasonable so it didn’t hurt settling our bar tab at the end of the evening. Best Christmas party our team has had to date, I give this event a 10 out of 10."
Debs, Connect Solutions
"I’d just like to thank you and your team for a fabulous time on Saturday night. We loved the entertainment, the stage show it was hilarious and your actors did a great job at breaking the ice at the start of the evening which can sometime be an awkward time. Everyone is raving about how much fun they had. I also thought your singer was wonderfully talented, she had such a great voice. To top it all off the food was delicious (especially the Chicken curry) and the service was excellent. Please pass our thanks onto your team."
Karen Wicks, Transworks
"Thanks for organizing and putting on such a great night. The food was beautiful and plentiful, show was funny and entertaining but not too in your face and the DJ played a good selection of music to suit all age groups. What more could we have asked for?"
Dee, Vodafone
"The chatter in the lunch room this morning was all about what a great night everyone had on Saturday night. The actors were a blast and had us in stitches on the night. Also, great reviews on the buffet. There was plenty of food and it was refilled constantly so even though we were one of the last tables to go up we felt we got exactly what the first table got – very important to a bunch of hungry males! Thanks for organizing a great night."
Mike, VTNZ
