For more than a decade, Tongue and Groove has consistently been considered one of the premier live bands in Auckland performing for celebrity occasions, company events, wedding receptions and private parties New Zealand wide.

With two of New Zealand's top female singers out front, Zara & Charlie from the award winning NZ band Deep Obsession, Tongue & Groove band perform a wide range of songs to satisfy all age groups and play only well known songs that everyone loves, ranging from the latest dance hits to the well known classics of the 70's, 80's & 90's... all songs that will get your guests dancing.

Tongue & Groove band are very experienced musicians choosing music that will work best to achieve a full dance floor. They are very adept at reading the audience mood and creating the right mix for their enjoyment. If the occasion calls for it, Tongue & Groove band are equally adept at performing soft jazz and well known ballads. This can work well for cocktail parties, networking events and the early hours of receptions before and during dinner.

If your budget is a bit tight they offer the option of the 3 piece line up. You will still get the same great sound as you would get with the 4 piece line up. 

Note: The YouTube clips are live recording made with a standard video camera, so doesn't reflect how AWESOME they sound, however we guarantee the band sounds fantastic through their excellent front-of-house sound system at each the event :)


“Tongue & Groove made the party a huge success with dancing from start to finish. I am not from Auckland originally and didn’t have any idea where to start in seeking a band for my 50th (60s theme!) and you came recommended by a friend who is an Event Manager. I would definitely recommend ‘Tongue & Groove’ for their brilliant sound, awesome song choice, and being great guys to work with.” Liz Blake

“Once again, thanks for last night. The packed dance floor was a pleasure to see!” Annette Smith, Pharmacy Awards, Auckland

“Everybody that has been in touch with me loved the music! So well done to you and your fantastic band. Of course I already know that you’re the best” Leslie Dawson, Fundraising Events Manager, Mercy Hospice,  Auckland

“Tongue & Groove had virtually all of the attendees up dancing and enjoying the music. The group was totally professional, started exactly on time and never missed a beat. They played for 2 and a half hours without a break and just made the event top shelf. Our attendees all told us how much they enjoyed it and both old and young raved about how much fun it was” Garth Wylie, Executive Director, Direct Selling Association of NZ

What a professional band. The music was fabulous catering for a wide variety of guests aged from 10 to 75. Everyone got up to dance and didn't stop the whole night. Tongue and Groove were fantastic and really made the evening. All of our guests and ourselves were so impressed with them, the quality of the music, the sound, and their amazing voices!! Thank you guys so much for the fantastic evening. You made our night!!” Jody & Paul Eaton 20th Wedding Anniversary

“Thank you for the most amazing night you guys gave us for our wedding reception. We had so much fun dancing with everyone of all ages on the night and I will never forget it! Thanks also for letting my Dad get up and play a song with you – that was a high-light of the night for me watching Dad play – and he probably felt really cool too!! Thanks for giving me so many fun memories from the ‘party’ part of our wedding! Friends of ours who came to the wedding who are looking for a band have already been asking us about you – and we will certainly be recommending you guys!” Stacy Beadle
