These are 3 of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Great to deal with and very professional. More importantly they are all highly talented musicians and have a fantastic sound. We had the best night. They are perfect for a party. An easy review to write, as we have no hesitation in recommending them. Thanks guys!

Homage recently played for us at a 50th birthday party with a theme of 80s Rock. The quality of music they played was outstanding and we found them very professional musicians with an awesome sound. We highly recommend Homage to anyone who wants quality and good entertainment, and would definitely use them again. Many thanks to Spex, Wayne & Mario. You guys rocked the night! Cheers, Craig & Sherryl.

I have been in and around the entertainment scene for over twenty years, I have worked in numerous pubs and clubs over this time and have seen and heard some great bands. I was blown away by "HOMAGE" they would have to be the best covers band I have had the pleasure if seeing and listening to. Pure rock as it was meant to be, no gimmicks or sequencers, a set list to be envied by all muso's. Proffesional and extremely entertaining... Look no further these guys are the real deal.. Book them you won't be dissapointed.
Saw these guys at Napier MCs event on Sat,F%$K we had a great time, great sound,great songs probably one of the best bands I have enjoyed in a lifetime .Cheers Gazza.
Caught these guys at an earthquake appeal event up in Levin-half the bands turned up late and Homage filled in the gaps with ease without prior notice-endless and varied set list-top quality sound and incredible musical ability which should have most other covers bands swopping their gear for fishing rods-they totally rock-book them with total confidence-they are the real deal.
Saw this band at the One Night Stand Bike Rally held by the Bay MC near napier this last weekend. They Rock! Great sound, great showmen. Top Band.Thanks Fellas

hi there I was one of the bartenders at the 50th bday you guys played in Porangahau and man you guys rocked it hard it was cool as primo guys keep up the good work
This band "Rocks", thanks Spex, Wayne and Mario thoroughly enjoyed the music you played as did everyone else at my 50th. Cheer boys you were awesome!!!!!
I have to say, I was among those helping to select a band by listening to demo's on band's suitable for Cameron's Birthday. On listening to Homage's demo - admittedly I thought yeah they were ok... I suppose. Well their demo didn't do them justice. This band rocked, had everyone else rocking, and even myself dancing in my very sober state. Everyone raved the following day about the band. Thanks Homage for making the night enjoyable & memorable.
