Auckland's Best Wedding Bands For a Packed Dancefloor

By Find A Band and

As the sun sets on your wedding day, there are two things on everyone's minds - the food and the music. This carefully selected bunch of bands will ensure that one of those two things is memorable for all the right reasons. We make no apologies for fist-pumping groomsmen, unwanted backing vocalist uncles, red wine spills and breakdancing by people who will deeply regret it the following day.

The Pickups

Rock with You - The Pickups from Findaband

Brand new on the wedding scene, The Pickups have stormed out of the gate with the super sexy sounds of the 80s, 90s, and 2000s. Their vocalist is considered one of the best in the game, and the band as a whole have performed with many of NZ's biggest names. If you're looking for big rock songs, look elsewhere, but if you want it funky as hell all night long, then this is your band.

Best Dancefloor Fillers:

24K Magic - Bruno Mars
I Got You (I Feel Good) - James Brown
Rock With You - Michael Jackson


Valerie - Jumpsuit from Findaband.

No song is off limits with Jumpsuit. Want some Bob Marley, a dash of Stevie and, hell why not, some Ben Harper? These guys are the band that knows all the songs; all of them.

Best Dancefloor Fillers:

September - Earth Wind & Fire
Signed, Sealed, Delivered - Stevie Wonder
Valerie - Amy Winehouse

Quantum Blue

American Boy - Quantum Blue from Findaband.

It's a man's world in the Auckland band world, but Clo Chaperon is the first lady of soul in the city of sails. Quantum Blue is a five-piece band that will slay it whether you need smooth jazz during dinner, or you want to not feel your face (but also love it) much later in the night.

Best Dancefloor Fillers:

Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
I Can’t Feel My Face - The Weeknd
American Boy - Estelle

Kid Radio

Kid Radio - Treasure (Bruno Mars) from Findaband.

Praise the Lord! After a lengthy residency at Sweatshop, Kid Radio are now available for weddings. If your idea of a good time is a dancefloor of your friends and family collectively moonwalking and "shamon-ing" to a Michael Jackson song, then you're going to want to take a close look at Kid Radio.

Best Dancefloor Fillers:

Treasure - Bruno Mars
The Way You Make Me Feel - Michael Jackson
I Like The Way You Move - Outkast

Blue Steel

Satisfaction - Blue Steel from Findaband.

Blue Steel specialises in absolute classic bangers, whether that means a 50s tune from Johnny Cash or a shiny 80s track from George Michael. A perennial favourite with clients who want "something for everyone", Blue Steel's focus on the golden era of decades past will hit the mark with each and every guest. From Nana to your South-Island-cousin who smokes "rollies" and turned up to the wedding in skate shoes, Blue Steel will have them all dancing.

Best Dancefloor Fillers:

Dancing in the Dark - Bruce Springsteen
Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac
Satisfaction - Rolling Stones
