corporate and wedding band reviews

people say great things.

Choosing the right live entertainment for your event is key! While you can always see us at some of the big city New Years events and festivals it’s often just not possible to watch our shows in person prior to booking.

To give you some confidence that you’re making the best possible choice of event band or wedding band take a look at our client testimonials. We’ll give you the same great experience and care they’ve enjoyed and have everyone talking about your big event!

I know I was hesitant about a 2 piece band being able to hold a 150 strong captive audience, but as Katie advised ‘trust her’ – they didn’t fail to deliver, they were fantastic! Please do pass on our thanks to La Social, they kept the members up and dancing and ensured the evening flowed beautifully.
Katie Bowden : Dinamics. Corporate Event Band 2016

You were amazing at keeping the crowd involved and we had so many comments on how great you all were, from the relaxed canapés in the afternoon to the party that night, you suited the mood of our guests perfectly and we can’t thank you enough for that. You handled the crowd so so well and everyone loved hearing their favourite songs and having a good dance.
Sophie and Sam : Wanaka Wedding Band 2016

Thank-you all so much for all of your help over TRENZ week. Lindsay and Ailsa you were great at the Sofitel event, we had great feedback from the venue saying they would love to use you again. Then for the TRENZ farewell you were amazing! The crowd and client loved you. Thanks again.
Sam : Orange Group. TRENZ Event Band

Thank you so much for such an awesome time at out wedding in Te Anau! We have had so many comments about you guys, it has been just awesome!!!! You guys were so much fun and really did keep the party going! Our friends and family just love to dance! Sorry for you guys getting flash mobbed by bagpipes for a minute or so there!
Tara Harris : Wedding Band March 2016

As expected you were perfect! I will make sure I book you in plenty of time for next year.
Pip Richards : BMW Xdrive 2010-2017

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for singing at the Essential Brands Group welcome evening for their 10th Birthday Celebration on February 10 at Bungy Dome. I honestly thought I was not going to get the group out of there that night as all they wanted to do was dance all night. No one wanted to leave and all during our time in Queenstown I constantly herd remarks of how great you were! You played such an array of wonderful music and as always it is great to see everyone get up dancing and enjoying themselves. LA Social truly are amazing. Thank you so much for helping make our night one to remember.
Rachael Greany : Essential Brands – Corporate Event Band

Thanks for all your energy and professionalism, you just get better and better.
Amanda Muir : HQNZ – Corporate Event Band

Thank you for coming along – It was the perfect entertainment for such a venue!
Wendy Boyce : Conference Innovators – Roving Acoustic Duo

We were extremely lucky to have you and the band here and I have only heard great comments about your performance. Thanks again Lindsay for all your help.
Stacey Day : Meridien Energy Event Host and Band

At least a dozen wedding guests said it’s the best band they’ve ever heard at a wedding, and the packed dance floor (including over 80 year old aunt) was testament to that.
Sarah and Greg : Wedding Band 2016

Just to say a big thank you for your work and especially DJ Rosé. Tell Rosa there has been huge feedback about how good she was!! Many thanks indeed. Here’s to the next event we can dream up!!
Michael Parker : Event Djay 2016

Dave lived up to your reputation and after playing a great first dance song did great sets and a couple of encores which was lovely. It was a great night dancing, sorry about the dust!
Paul Skerten : Wedding Band 2016

They are LA Social and they are fabulous – we always use them for events.
Vicky Jenkins : QT Events. Corporate Events Band

Thanks team – was great to work with you all. Really professional and you gave exactly what we asked for- my only wish was that we had the buses leaving later so the guests could enjoy a bit more!. Will definitely be using you again – it’s been a pleasure.
Nina : Big Day Events. Mazda CX5 Launch 2012 CX3 Launch 2014

Very easy to deal with and LA Social made the whole process very easy. They turned up knowing what to do and what to play.
Charlotte Hansen : Wedding Music 2016

You have so much personality, you interact with each other and the guests, and truly look like you’re enjoying yourselves, exceptional talent. We usually have a Wow Factor evening on a Saturday night so of course thought of LA Social Club first off for entertainment… I’m very much looking forward to working with you both again next year.
Donna Douglas : Deutsche Craigs. Exec Al Brown Events 2009,11,12,13,14,15,16 Grand Masters Opening - Te Papa Oct 2010

I have worked with many bands over the years and you guys were totally the best, just awesome energy and great songs, plus the fact you went above and beyond to learn ‘the song’ was exceptional. Thank you! You guys were all very easy to work with and it was a pleasure having you there. The music was brilliant, and you were a great MC, which I thought really added to things. Thanks again!
Sarah Hasset : Metro EXP Johnson & Johnson, McDonalds, Visique Optometrists

The best thing about my experience with LA Social was not only the music and the way the band could read the room and play to the mood of the crowd, but also the way they really got into it themselves! Seeing the band jumping around and having a great time won the crowd over instantly and made everyone else want to jump around with them! Also a big thanks to the guitar player on the night for dropping my husband and I to the Emergency Room at the hospital at 11.30pm!!!! My husband started passing a kidney stone while I was jumping around to ‘Boom shake the room’! haha. Big thanks to him for dropping us off!!! Above and beyond the call of duty!!

Jaclyn Heyden : Wedding Music November 2015

We are eternally in your debt and will take delight in telling the world and his wife that we had the BEST Band in NZ for our daughters wedding!
Norman gilbert : Wedding Band 2015

Just wanted to say a Big Thanks to you for the show the Derek, Fiona and Tim put on, in our Saturday party. They were excellent and we all had a great time.
Hallit Breslof : Oamaru Trustpower Party Dec 2015, 2016

A lot of our guests commented on the artist who was playing during the ceremony! He did an amazing job. Best experience is a hard one because everything went so smoothly. I guess it could be how easy it was to organise, the pre wedding form literally covered everything so as long as that was filled out correctly, we didn’t have to email you guys back and forth which is awesome, you guys just showed up and did your thing. Totally glad we spent the extra money and got you guys to play over a DJ! It was so nice not having to worry anything, you guys know what your doing and you do it so well.
Caroline Gin : Wedding Music 2016

I had the pleasure of experiencing your band on the TSS Earnslaw on the night of Save the Titanic. You certainly rocked the boat. I loved the fact there was a wide age group and everyone was up dancing.In fact your band topped what was a excellent night.
Fiona Lawson : Crowne Plaza. Corporate Event Band - April 2012

LA Social are amazing. They made the night a huge success and everyone was up dancing from the first song onwards (including the groom’s 91 year old nana). Would not hesitate in booking again in the future! Highly recommended.

Jillisa Martin : Queenstown Wedding Band 2016

Thanks for putting on a great show. The feedback was excellent.
Deborah Husheer : Arrowtown Autumn Festival. Street Parade Event Band - April 2012,13,14 Pie and Pint silver sponsor 2015 Denim and Diamonds Ball silver sponsor 2016


Thank you both so much for being a part of our wedding day! Everyone thought you were fantastic and had the best time. You certainly know how to get a crowd dancing and keep them up. Great job of Celine Dion, that song has been a huge part of my head bridesmaid and my life so was awesome that you played it so well!
Lisa Allen : Wedding Band Nov 2015

The way they read our guests and picked music to suit. The fact that they knew the venue and didn’t need anything from us, it gave us assurance that we didn’t need to worry about being the middle man between venue and band. They were fun, relaxed and energised our guest after a long day. The quality of performance and musicianship was better than we could have hoped. Thank you for being awesome!
Sonya Gale : Wedding Band Nov 2015

LA Social were absolutely amazing. We received so many compliments on their behalf, everyone asking how and where we found them. They were surprised when we told them that it was all done through the internet and we had never heard them live previously. We never once doubted booking the band as their reviews were great, they came highly recommended by our chosen wedding venue and the demos that were posted on the website sounded perfect – exactly what we were looking for.

Lindsay and Ailsa entertained our guests during the canapés whilst my new husband Luke and I were having photos taken. Everyone loved them and asked if they would be coming back later in the evening. A few hours later Jodie the drummer joined them and with the first song everyone was up and dancing. This was the best thing about our experience with LA social, they could read the crowd and played song after song that you just had to get up and dance to. We had an awesome evening to follow up on our big day. One that we will never forget. We would like to thank you all for being a part of our wedding.

Sarah Dixon : Wedding Band 2015

So easy to work with, no hassle, played the perfect type of music for our guests, lots of fun!
Lauren Gibbs : Mitsubishi Event Band 2015

Variety of music was great! Set up was all done prior to arrival which was awesome.Played past original finish time due to us being late.

Kate Baxter : Shotover Jet 50th Event Band

Lindsay it was awesome to work with you in a new and different role! You did great and Andrew the client loved you.
Katie Bowden : Event MC Nov 2015

Once again LA Social provide the perfect blend of entertainment for yet another of our corporate groups. Thanks team!
Kirsty Hart : Acoustic Duo June 2015

Brilliant acoustic for the ceremony, sounded great. Canapés we missed unfortunately but we got great feedback. And for the reception is was fantastic, great music and interaction with guests to get people up dancing.
Tom Galland : Wedding Band Oct 2015

I wanted to thankyou for making our Launch Party a memorable event. From the start dealings with LA Social Club was easy and most importantly you understood exactly what we wanted and delivered it on the night. An especial thank you to Rosa, our DJ for the night who not only looked amazing to fit in with our theme, but knew exactly what was needed to help create the environment and ambience we wanted.

Sofitel Queenstown : Spa Launch Event DJay

Thanks so much for playing at our wedding,you guys really made the party, you knew exactly what to play for the crowed and kept everyone up dancing from the moment the first dance was over. I had so many positive comments from our quests and have never been to a wedding where so many people were dancing the whole night. The variety of music was epic. Thanks for making the party so much fun!
Gemma Milne : Wedding Band Nov 2015

Thanks again for doing such a great job. We had some really good feedback from guests, I had two separate people asking what the name of the band was so they could follow you on Facebook.
Louise Toulmin : ID Tours Event Band

You guys were awesome!!! The minute you started playing you had everybody up dancing. You made the party so much fun. Everything about LA Social was the best!!!!!
Julie McNeish : Wedding Music Sept 2015

The band was phenomenal. They were so lovely, accommodating and talented. Our guests enjoyed them so much and they were truly our nights saving grace. To have your band there, willing, happy and truly a representation of the wonderful New Zealand hospitality was such a contrasting privilege.
Jaqueline Du Plesis : Wedding Band 2015

I am use to dealing with Lindsay and Ailsa for most of our events so it was great to be able to see some other performers on their team. I really enjoyed Andrea, Dave and Tim, they were able to read the crowd well and set a great atmosphere. They were very accommodating and would be happy to use them again.
Jamie Dennison : HQNZ Event Band 2015

What an amazing night, LA Social kept the night alive and we have had some raving comments about them and our wedding. The best thing was how wonderful they performed our first dance song, I so wish we could hear it again. They also kept everyone up dancing, the guy we had perform in the chapel did an outstanding job also, once again I only wish I could hear it again and fully appreciate the talent. It felt like they only played for an hour as I was having so much fun 🙂 We have had countless compliments on the band, they were absolutely amazing! Thank you to you all for contributing to making the day so absolutely wonderful – you guys rock!!!
