Since the year 2000, The Monroes have been providing quality entertainment throughout New Zealand as well as off shore. Our performers love their work and arrive at every venue, ready to give the audience a show to remember.

With choreographed dancing, funky “Retro” costuming to match we start off with rock ‘n roll hits from the 1950s and 60s. Followed by the 1970s; complete with flares, afros and “pimped out” threads. Last but not least the 1980s where we unleash wild mullets, extremely tight jeans, leopard print and crazy makeup! On tour throughout the country all year round, a show from The Sound Workshop is the perfect choice for public events and corporate functions and is guaranteed to deliver, a high energy performance, with top-notch musicianship and very slick production.

“The Monroes – were fun & funky and will soon have even the most timid of you, out of your seats, dancing and having a GREAT time !”

Hi Karl They were AMAZING! Great choice and would highly recommend. Thanks Justine
The wedding went really well so we are very pleased. As for the band The Sound Workshop these guys were fantastic, the quality of music they made was phenomenal, each and everyone of the band put everything into the show and the guests just loved them. We had people from all ages and there was something for everyone who were all up dancing right through to the end what a great experience the band was. They were definitely the difference I was looking for when choosing the entertainment for the wedding, it was more of a show than just another covers band. For anyone looking for a great band we totally recommend them, If you want to see what they are like check their promo videos they are just like it in real life and the sound is amazing, with so many bands all you hear are the drums or a messy mixture, with these guys you hear everything especially the singer who was awesome. We Just loved them.

You really rocked at the New Year's concert in the Square in Palmie! You made it so much fun for everyone of all ages to be there for the countdown. You were full of energy and your whole act was so entertaining. Thanks!!!
Thank you for a superb evening last Saturday night. The feedback from the people who attended was excellent they thought you all did a superb job. Thank you all again you were fantastic all of you!

The Sound Workshop have performed for the last 3 Westpac Waikato Business Excellence Awards, They really start the party celebrations with a roar continuing in a truly polished & party style. Their contribution really adds to the entire night & I have no hesitation in commending them to prospective clients

The Sound Workshop were a high energy band who gave a non-stop, highly entertaining performance. People were dancing even before eating their meals and many said it was the best entertainment that had ever been provided at an awards evening. I would most certainly re-book The Sound Workshop and enjoy another one of their shows.
Lesley Davies, Human Resources Co-ordinator, 3M
The Sound Workshop were mind blowingly brilliant! Highly talented,hugely energetic, entertaining and incredibly versatile. I have no hesitation in whole heartedly recommending The Sound Workshop to anybody who wants a great band
Mike Lowery, Marketing Manager, Paper Plus NZ Ltd
The Sound Workshop - Absolutely Sensational… My number one choice when planning a function or recommending a band to clients. Not only do they provide a professional stage performance, but because of the energy and passion in every performance, they keep the crowd dancing and moving to the end of the night
