The Band

LIVEWIRE band have been entertaining all over the South Island since 2003.  Originally from Dunedin but now centrally based in South Canterbury.  We are happy to travel South Island wide be it Nelson, West Coast, Christchurch, Dunedin, maybe Bluff and or anywhere in between. 

The aim of the band is to continue to provide great up-tempo dance music so infectious you can’t resist.  
We love to see people having a great time and can be guaranteed to please.  Whether it’s a wedding, a corporate function or a party gathering we have the songs you love to hear & dance to.  With Kiwi singalongs from “The Exponents” and "Split Enz" to the classic hits of “Pink Floyd” & “The Rolling Stones”.  Or maybe you like current chart-toppers from “Bruno Mars” & “Ed Sheeran” we cover all the genre. 

You can view our song list and check out our large repertoire.  If we don’t list your favourite song then please contact us and inquire, can we learn it for you?
