Thanks for your lovely email and really the night was great and we all decided that you have been the best band we have had in years!

Jill - Outshine RANZCR  (August 18)

Hi Mojo

Just want to send you a quick email just to say a huge thank you for making our wedding the party that we had pictured. You and the rest of the Mojo band were awesome! We had so many comments on how good the band was!

Also with the canapés as well, although Julie and I were away for most of them but the feedback we got was so good. 

We both could not have dreamt a better day. Everything about it was just perfect and everyone one who was part of it was perfect. 

So thank you guys, i will be recommending you to everyone!!

Sam and Julie (March '18)

"Hi Shay. Maryanne here as John and Kate have flown back to London. You guys were outstanding, Generous with your set times, completely professional and easily one of the best bands to dance to. Everyone is raving 
Thanks so much."

John and Kate (Jan 2018)

Dear Shay and Pearly,
A huge heartfelt thank you for performing at our wedding on the weekend. We had such a wonderful day, made all the more special for you guys being there.
So much talent! I especially appreciated your commitment and enthusiasm for our song dedications. Everyone loved it. We had so many guests comment that they hadn't danced so much in a long time. 
If there is somewhere you would like us to leave a formal review, please let me know as we would both highly recommend you to anyone.
I hope you have had a good start to the week and thanks so much for the part you played in making our day so special.

Tara & Tim (Mt Nicholas Jan 2018)

Hey Shay,

Thank you so much for your performance for our wedding, it was exactly what we had imagined! Kate was over the moon!

Kate's cousin has filmed your version of Home, it's a great quality video and we'd like to upload it to Facebook with your blessing. We'd be happy for you to share it as well. 

We've just got home from overseas but will post the video and a review soon as everyone has raved about Shay so we were ecstatic to have him perform for us, i just wish that Kate and i got more time to see and hear him perform but as you can imagine we were very busy on the day. 

Thanks again, you made our day.

Rob and Kate (Nov '17 The Winehouse )

The music was fantastic 
I spoke to the guitar man and told him I was impressed 
Not often I get impressed when it’s not country music

Hi Shay, Pearly and Mojo

Our friends won’t stop talking about how good you guys were on Saturday night, they are saying that you guys truly made the night special and we think so too :)

Looking forward to seeing you guys playing at Alex and Becky’s wedding in March!!! 

And thanks for the lovely selfie haha!

Lots of Love,

Hi Shay, Kirsten and the crew,

I just want to thank you for being apart of our special day and making it bloody awesome!

Kirsten, from the word get-go, you may me feel so at ease and you were super helpful with everything. Music was something I wanted to nail and to choose from afar was difficult, but to Shay and your crew, you guys certainly lived up to all the amazing reviews I had heard and Im so glad we picked you guys.

We had so many people rave to us the next day about awesome the band was and people were up dancing that would not normally dance - which is a true sign of a good party!! I personally had a blast on the D floor and loved the kiwiana songs that you busted out, thank you! 

Incredible talent and incredible people.

Thank you also for coming in last minute to accommodate the ceremony and canapes. 

Thanks again. Keep rocking! (Michelle and Kyle Nov '17) Glendhu Station

Hey Shay and the Mojo band

You guys were fantastic! Thank you so much for providing us the perfect band, you guys were amazing, you read the audience perfectly and just helped us party the night away.

I did mention to you on the night, but we always have our awards evening and band on the final night and it doesn’t matter what the conference was like for the few days prior, it’s all about the band and a good band leaves everyone on a high and a not so good band leaves everyone kind of in limbo and can often dampen the success of the conference as a whole.

All I can say is that you left us all buzzing, on a complete high! You guys were amazing, great with the audience and just so talented. You really did help us party the night away.

Thanks again for providing us with amazing entertainment, I wish I could have you join us every year!

"You and the band were the absolute best. Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing the party with you. I couldn't have had a better night. Dire Straits completes me"

Kelsey and Rowan (April 1st '17)

Wow that was very cool wedding!

Thank you all so very much for playing an important role in making the wedding so special. I had a smile on my face for most of the day and Wanaka pulled it out of the box.
I am very chuffed to be able to work with you all and for a very special couple.

Much love
Em (Katrina and Scott) March '17

Hey guys- honestly was the BEST day and night ever. People would not stop raving about you guys and there is no way we would have had any other band!
After Harriet's in Jan we knew no one would top you guys, particularly never seen so many people of all ages enjoying it. Couldn't get gran off dance floor all night :)
Thanks SO much
Emily & Ryan

Dear Shay,
Nick and I wanted to write to say THANK YOU to you and the rest of the group! 
You were just perfect at our wedding and we had a great night! Everyone said the music was awesome. ps Thanks for letting Nick's brother Ben up on stage, I think he missed being in a band! Haha we loved the selfie at the end of the night with little Jack still up ready to dance some more!
All the best for the rest of the season, hope you are getting to enjoy some of this sun!
Kind regards Jenny and Nick (Glendhu Bay Station Feb 2017)
Hi Mojo, Thanks so much you guys were incredible as always! We cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us at our wedding on Saturday. It was so amazing to have a band that was interactive & we really appreciate you pulling out all the stops to play "shapeshifter - one". You are the best of the best. We love you guys 
E + J Rhodes xx (QT January 14th '17)
You guys were truly amazing and made what was already a great day even better! We had so many comments on how awesome you guys were! You made our night a total party, Look forward to seeing you at another wedding in 6 weeks!

Mel and Dan Leppard (North Canterbury January 21st '17)
Hey guys! Just want to say thank you so much for such a amazing performance at our wedding! The crowd kept saying they haven't heard such a good live act before at a function!!! You really played to the crowd and across generations! Everyone loved it! Thank you so much. 🙂

Danielle and Matthew (Rippon December 17th '17)

Hi Shay! Thank you SO much for Friday night! We loved it and as you can tell, we didn't want it to end!  Thanks for everything. We have had such great feedback about you guys 😊 (Alice and Sam January 2017 Wanaka) 

Hi Shay and the Mojo crew,
I thought I’d take a moment this morning to say thank you for your truly spectacular performance at the Southern Excellence Awards on Friday night. You are quite simply fabulous at what you do and I would have no hesitation in recommending you far and wide. 
Mojo were outstanding – I have been planning corporate events and conferences for 10+ years and they are definitely the band I would recommend to anyone. Just brilliant!
Kelly Taylor (NZ Property Council,  Awards Night Wigram CHCH November 2016)

Hi Shay and Pearly
We just want to say a big thanks for being apart of our wedding day. You both did a great job at Amisfield and absolutely added a great energy to the event. You’re true professionals and your performances really blew us away! It was exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much!
All the best
Pete & Maddy (Amisfield October 2016)

Hi Shay,

We could not have imagined a better band for our wedding. You got everyone up dancing from the first song, and the dance floor was full all night. I had so many people say they had never danced so much in their lives! You took on everything we asked of you, from interactive sing alongs, dance offs and conga lines. You really helped to make it the best day of our lives!

Thanks again,

Jessica (Stoneridge September 2016)

Hi Shay,
You guys were AMAZING!!! We are SO happy we booked you – I want to have another party, just so we can hire you again as it was so much fun!
If you’re hesitating as to whether to book MOJO, hesitate no longer – we hired the band for our winter wedding in Queenstown and they were an absolute HIT! They are complete professionals, fantastic musicians and will play to the crowd – our guests are still raving about how much fun they had on the dance floor, from 89 year old Auntie Edna, to our youngest guest of 21. You can tell Mojo loves what they do, because they had huge smiles on their faces the whole evening. They played the most beautiful acoustic version of Wonderwall for our first dance, which even took my husband’s breath away – it remains one of our favourite moments from the whole day. Tip? Book them to play for your ceremony/canapés as well as post dinner – Pearly’s voice is exquisite and lends the most magical air to the day. We can’t thank Mojo enough for such a fun night!
Hoping we’ll get a chance to hear you guys again one day – I know you sometimes play new years in Queenstown, so here’s hoping!
Everyone from the band was so lovely, thank you again from both Greg and I – what a wonderful night.
Tara & Greg (Jacks Point August 2016)

Hi Shay,

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for you and Pearly's performance last week at our wedding, both Jess & I along with our guests had such a blast. We had a lot asking the next day about you guys so hopefully you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did.

Looking forward to seeing you playing next time we are down in Queenstown.


Scott & Jess (Lake Hayes Pavilion September 2016)

Hi Shay,
Great to hear from you and many thanks for your kind wishes.. we had such a ball at the wedding and you guys were a hit! Lots of comments and praises for you guys and everyone was very disappointed when you called last song!
Both Janey and I just wanted to say a huge thank you from us, you guys were awesome to deal with and the music was primo! It all made the day so much fun and fitted perfectly with what we wanted for all our guests. Also it was awesome to get on the mic and give our best NZ idol renditions of the Wagon Wheel!! haha
Massive thanks again Shay and hopefully we will bump into you guys again one day soon on the dance floor!
Take care and best wishes

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding in April. You guys were fantastic, from the ceremony right through to the end of the reception. We have had nothing but great feedback from our guests about how awesome the band was. At one stage my Dad was a bit worried because everyone was sitting down but that was only because you fullers were on a break, as soon as you came back on, the dance floor was packed! Initially we weren't going to have a band at our wedding but I am so glad we changed our minds. Best google search ever when we found you. 

We hope you guys enjoyed the honey. E iti noa ana nā te aroha. 

Ngā mihi Te Petit Whānau  xoxo (Orchard Gardens Alexandra April 2016)

Hi Shay, 

I wanted to say once again thank you to you, Pearl and Chad for a great evening, as you could see, no one wanted to leave!  Some of them did carry on once we got back to Queenstown and there were a few hung-over faces in the flight but all good.  Everyone was raving about how good you guys were! 

Until next time, wishing you all the very best. 

Kind regards

Hey Mojo, 
Jason and I would like to thank you SO MUCH for playing at our wedding. We knew you guys would rock but you totally blew our expectations out of the water! 
We had countless comments on how awesome the band was. You had everyone up on their feet dancing pretty much the entire night, and knew exactly the right mix of music to get our guests going! I’ve also had a few people say it was one of the best wedding dances they’ve been to, and I reckon that comes down to you guys absolutely NAILING IT. Me and Jason had a freakin awesome time, so thank you Mojo! 

Justine & Jason (Glendhu Bay April 2016)

"We are so glad we asked Shay and Mojo to sing at our wedding.  We had Shay and Pearly sing at our ceremony and during canapes which was beautiful. In the evening we had the 3-piece band and they were awesome - they sung the best songs and kept our dancefloor full all night long! We highly recommend Mojo for any event." 

Jaz&Phil (Gantleys March '16)

Hi Shay

Hi Shay – just wanted to drop an official note to you about how much we enjoyed having Mojo play at the CCLS dinner. You band is probably the best band we use for conferences and I would not hesitate to recommend you to other conference organisers. You have a great sound and it was wonderful to have some live music while our delegates were eating. Congratulations on having such a great band and for being so easy to work with. Very much appreciated your behind the scene support during the line dancing!
Regards Karen  Mclean (Attend LTD) March '15

Hi Pearly, Shay and Mojo, 
Thank you so much for the awesome entertainment at our January wedding. We were absolutely stoked when we got confirmation you were available on our wedding date and you certainly didn't let us down on the day.
We had a huge number of guests talk about how great the band was! Thanks for the awesome 2 piece you did at our ceremony, we really wanted to stay for the canapes but hear from our guests you were outstanding (while we were getting our photos taken). You guys read our crowd and made the reception so much fun! We couldn't recommend a band more highly than Mojo! 
Thanks again and best regards,

Shay and Mojo thank you for playing for us at our wedding reception at Glendhu Bay. The band was a hugely important feature of the day for us and as Mojo came so highly recommended we knew we had to have you. The crowd loved you, everyone has commented on how awesome you were, old and young! You read our crowd perfectly and the dance floor was never empty. The music during canapés was also perfect. Thank you for being a part of our special day. Hopefully we get to listen to you again sometime soon.
Honestly you guys were awesome. You made our night. Guy and I actually ended up at the pub because we didnt want the night to end but that meant we had to walk home. That wasn't so fun ;) 

Thanks heaps!! So many good comments! 
All the best

Sarah - Sane Event Group - July 2013


Thank you for a fantastic evening on Friday night at the NZHHA Conference in Queenstown. Hope you were not too disheartened with the lack of dances (Male), unfortunately the men always seem to disappear to hold up the bar but at least the girls had a blast. You are a truly talented band and us girls enjoyed the music, sore backs, sore feet the next morning!!!

I would certainly recommend your band.

Helen - Heavy Haulage Conference  - August 2013


It was a great night and the band played the perfect mix. Have even had feedback this was one of the best nights MSD has had at their mid-year conference mostly down to the music – so thanks again :)

I will absolutely be sure to recommend you guys wherever possible.
