Union band, featuring the amazing vocals of Leza Lee, are one of Auckland’s most sought after bands. Their mix of everyone’s retro favourites, lively delivery and utmost professionalism have seen Union become the darlings of the corporate crowd. Leza has an inimitable knack of enticing the most reluctant of partygoers onto the dance floor.
Union have been the choice of the city’s top event coordinators, headlining at the huge Louis Vuitton Opening Party for 4000 guests, and were invited to play at the exclusive awards ceremony for Oracle and Alinghi.
Their regular corporate clients include Vodafone, Frucorp, the Relish Group and Dawsons. Union featured two years in a row at the highly successful Waiheke Wine Festival at Cable Bay Vineyards as well as doing an annual concert at Ngatarawa Vineyards for 500+ guests, the last of which sold out two months prior to the event.
In 2003 they travelled to Fiji to perform at the Fiji Museum Fundraiser and also to Tonga to perform for the Crown Prince and dignitaries at the opening of a large venture there. They also continue to feature at Auckland’s own Sky City Casino drawing record numbers.

Vocalist Leza Lee leads the band through Motown, Soul, Disco and 80’s dance hits, as well as a sophisticated repertoire of jazz and ballads as the occasion requires. They regularly perform as a jazz combo at some of Auckland’s most discerning venues.

Leza has gathered together some of the country’s most seasoned and polished musicians to form Union, a partnership that has lasted nine years.

 As for Leza, you may recognise her from her work with the Strawpeople ( Silver Scroll winning Sweet Disorder, Scared of Flying and other singles ), as well as her television work on several Christmas in the Park shows and two Symphony Under the Stars concerts. She has sung with the inimitable Renee Geyer and the Auckland Philharmonia as well as most of New Zealand’s top musical artists such as Debbie Harwood, Eddie Raynor and Mike Chunn to mention a few.

Leza’s love of performing and utmost professionalism will ensure your function will be the one to remember.

"It was truly impressive to see how you encouraged our rather tired guests onto the dance floor, to the point where no one wanted you to stop singing."
- Christine Belanger, Event Director, Louis Vuitton Cup

"The song selection was superb; versatility ensured that the different tastes of the audience were catered for and was conducive to everybody's enjoyment."
- Sacha Olsen, Vodafone Warriors

"The party couldn't have been any better!! you guys were superb and we have ad SO many comments about how fantastic you were!"
- Peta Freeman, private function.

"The songs you chose were perfect for the crowd and they were performed so well, there was no choice but to get up and boogie. I was exptremely impressed by the rhythm section - extremely tight with a big sound and the vocal and harmonies were absolutely superb."
- Anthony Key for Caltex Australia Conference.

 "[my client] was considering flying a band in from Sydney, he was not convinced that a kiwi band could get so many people from so many different countries up and dancing. There was no doubt on the night that you did in fact surpass all our expectations. It rocked! There is nothing quite like being in the midst of thousands of writhing bodies and smiling faces... it was universally hailed as a terrific party and much of this is due to you guys."
- Cath Lewis for Dawsons Catering
