Custodians of Classic Rock

  • $900 - $1440
  • Styles: Rock Pop
  • Hometown: Auckland

High energy pop, rock, and rock n roll from the 50s through to the 80s. Consider the talent: Jim, our lead guitarist, has toured with Van Halen. He is possibly NZs best lead guitarist - no kidding.


The Custodians of Classic Rock were magnificent. They played a broad range of memorable songs from their playlist and it seemed that everyone was dancing to them. The dance floor had people on it all night right up to midnight. The band were charming and nothing seemed too much for them. The Toastmasters loved them and I would definitely want them to play for us again. In one word “Brilliant”



Bernie has toured internationally. With a quirky sense of humour he can brighten up any occasion. Hes an accomplished keyboardist and vocal mimic. Thats right, he can sound like Neil Diamond, Elvis, Dean Martin, and host of others - just for fun! He sounds like himself too when he wants to.
Nick is the drummer from hell. He can drum like the devil himself - and sing at the same time, just like Phil Collins. Voices merge perfectly in beautiful harmonies accompanied by a powerful beat and rhythm. These three guys know exactly what you need for your function. How? They work it out from their audience within minutes. Before long the party can be measured on the Richter Scale in Wellington! (Auckland band!)
Band Events:
The Custodians perform every week around Auckland and beyond. Some major events include: Ellerslie Races on Boxing Day and New Years Day. Whangamata Music Festival, Katikati Music Festival, Darling Harbour in Sydney, Sydney Town Hall. Van Halens NZ Tour.
