What our clients have to say....

THE ENTERTAINMENT FOR ANY EVENT IS A CRUCIAL PART OF THE EVENING. YOU NEED IT TO RUN LIKE CLOCKWORK, AND FOR THE BAND TO DELIVER EXACTLY WHAT THE CROWD DEMANDS AND DESERVES. WE'RE PROUD OF OUR REPUTATION FOR DELIVERING OUTSTANDING ENTERTAINMENT, BUT DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT. HERE'S SOME OF OUR LATEST TESTIMONIALS.

"The Strait Shooters have played 2 of my Fiji International Blues Festivals, and the Queenstown Jazz & Blues Festival to sell out crowds. Their unique blend of contemporary blues with a funky edge is well loved by festival goers and their own original music is very special. They also cover all the classics and both Warwick Murray and Rick Stringer play a mean blues harp which is a real treat. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Strait Shooters for any festivals."

BILLY TK JNR - FESTIVAL DIRECTOR

"Just a quick note to thank you for your superb performance during the Lion Nathan Wines & Spirits Conference in Queenstown last week. We had a great time in Queenstown and The House of Music contributed in making our conference very successful.

Thanks again for your professional approach on the night and leading up to the event. I look forward to using The House of Music again in the future."

GREG BLAKELY - LION NATHAN

"We can't thank you enough for playing for us. The band and the food was the highlight of the whole day. You guys were really incredible and now that we have just got home everyone is ringing up to thank us for the day and tell us how awesome the band we booked was!

So thanks again, I couldn't recommend you enough. You made the night very special and I will be happy to contact these people and tell them how thrilled we were.

KAREN & STEVE BROWN

It was a pleasure to have The Strait Shooters back playing NYE on Queenstown’s Main Stage Earnslaw Park. They always put on an amazing show attracting people of all ages to get up and dance.

Their professional manner made the night run that extra bit easier for all the production and site staff.

Awesome work guys and look forward to working with you again.
