Nightmoves

Nightnoves is a well presented, stylish, 4 piece covers band from Wellington. If you love to dance and like to hear a clean crisp sound with plenty of musicianship, then Nightmoves is for you. No sequenced backing tracks in this band!




Nightmoves was formed to fill a gap in the Wellington social club scene. They/ve made it their mission to play the kind of songs that everyone can dance to. The band also works hard on providing a sound quality that sparkles, so the listening audience is well catered for too. Comments from club visitors made about many other bands were often things like "they were too loud", "they just play the same songs every time", "the sound was muddy, I couldn't hear the words", and so on. None of these comments are ever made about Nightmoves!! The band rehearses every week so there's always something new to perform with every outing. Nightmoves has four very talented and experienced players in the classic lineup of two guitars, bass and drums. One of the guitarists is also a highly skilled keyboard player. Often the guitars play off each other in an entertaining cross-over lead style that is a little unusual. All members of the band sing so there's variety and good vocal harmony. Nightmoves is the perfect choice for any occasion and venue looking for the best quality performance aimed at keeping the entire audience happy and wanting more at the end of a fun filled evening.
