"Hi Samantha, Just wanted to say thank you for all your efforts to organise The Buskers band to play for us last Friday. I can honestly say, everyone was more than impressed with their performance. We are a hard group to cater for, most of our staff are 40+ with a few younger ones scattered around, but they all seem to have a different taste in music – so it’s generally quite hard to please them all. Luckily though, from the start of the first song, until the final song of the night – everyone was well and truly enjoying themselves. There was a great mix of songs, catering to everyone! Even our grumpy technical manager who doesn’t really like anything… at all – but the band even had him up dancing and singing. That alone for me, just proves how remarkable the band was at working in with our difficult crowd. Such a humble, lovely group of guys – all with a great sense of humour! A group like that can’t be forced, they need to have that kind of passion to begin with – I’m so glad we have been able to experience their talent. Sealed Air would like to extend their thanks to the band, for giving us such a memorable evening and something for the staff to talk about for weeks to come. Merry Christmas and best of wishes for the new year! Many thanks."
Nicky Williams, Sealed Air
"Wow, these guys are great!! I event managed a 190 pax event last week, Danny and his crew are brilliant, really easy to deal with, always on time, really flexible. Music is cool!! Would highly recommend the Buskers for your event!!"
Tracy Felton, Events Manager.
"My husband and I have very different tastes in music, so I was a little apprehensive about choosing a band for our wedding. I found The Buskers through a Google search, and listened to some of their music online. I was impressed and booked them for our big day. Danny and the band were very accommodating, and discussed all our options for our special day well in advance. I found them professional and thorough, nothing was left to chance. Our venue was different to the standard venue ( a boat), but Danny just took it in his stride. Nothing was an issue, which was so lovely, and really set our minds at ease. When our big day came, there was the band, all set up and ready to go. Our guests were most impressed by the choice of music played. There was something for everyone. The Buskers have a great play list to choose from. Thank you guys! We will happily recommend you to family and friends."
Emily & Ryon Derriman
"We had Danny playing at our corporate pre-match function before the All Blacks vs England test match. He was fantastic, created such a cool/smooth environment for our guests of 200. His professionalism and talented ability was highly visible and he was admired by all. He was extremely easy to work with and very adaptable though out the function. I would highly recommend him, we have already booked him in for our next function and can’t wait to hear him play again."
Brigitte Tyler, Essentially New Zealand
"The Buskers played for us at our staff Christmas party. The band has some real talent and Danny is great on vocals. The set list went down well, and an audience ranging in age and background was kept on the dance floor. At all times the band was professional to deal with. I would recommend."
Ben Steed, Simpson Grierson
"Danny and the boys played at our Wedding and they were truly the icing on the cake of a perfect day! They played an amazing acoustic set in the afternoon (general consensus was that they played John Mayer better than John Mayer himself!) which got everyone in the mood for a rocking good time and the full band blew us away later on with hit after hit. My Dad and some of his mates used to play in a band so are a tough crowd to please and they're still raving about The Buskers incredible skills and sounds over a year later. We didn't want the same old set list that every other covers band seems to play down at the pub and these guys added their own magic to a great list and read the crowd like a dream. Danny was incredibly flexible to deal with and Dad was throwing cash at them at the end to try and get them to keep playing (unfortunately venue had a curfew!). Would recommend these guys to anyone wanting the night of their lives!!"
Rachel and Lloyd Farrar
"If you are looking for professional, talented and versatile performers to entertain your next function then I can highly recommend this duo. Danny and Luke played a broad range of songs and they were able to set the pace and volume of their music to suit the changing mood of the Awards Evening."
Anna Wilson, Corporate Games
"Our firm hired The Buskers as a trio for our staff Christmas party. From start to finish, the band were very pleasant to deal with and professional at all times. We were extremely pleased with not only their performance on the night (our staff loved them and danced non-stop!), but also with their friendly and efficient communication leading up to the event. We would, without hesitation, recommend the The Buskers to anyone looking to hire a band. They are a great bunch of guys and we will definitely use them again in the future!"
