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?

Our line-up



Lead vocalist Abigail
Introducing our lead vocalist Abigail!

Abigail is a local Timaruvian whose life has always been based around music. With great parents and sister for role models, singing and performing has always been a big part of her life.
She is thoroughly involved in the South Canterbury drama league and has been since 2011. This is where she really began enhancing her natural performance skills.
Singing in a band has always been something on the bucket list and what better way to do it than with Livewire rocking out to the songs she danced to as her mother sang all those years ago. She is now the 4th one in the family out there gigging and has definitely caught the bug.


Lead guitarist Caleb
On guitar we have Caleb probably the best dressed guitarist you will ever see. He is a 24 year old Dunedinite recently completed a degree in Computer Science at the University of Otago. He has been playing guitar for  over 10 years give or take. Caleb has been exposed to the Oxo Cuban’s grooming school and says he is influenced by many genres from blues and pop to heavy metal. His favourite artists are Gary Moore, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Metallica and Black Sabbath.
Caleb really enjoys cutting loose with both his Fender Strat & Les Paul guitars and adding his sound to the Livewire soundscape.



Adrian, drums & vocals
On drums Adrian, founding member of LIVEWIRE. He has played in a number of Dunedin covers bands and surprises many as he also sings whilst playing furious beats n grooves as the backbone of the band.
