The Generators are outstanding, delivering the ultimate atmosphere for our big day! They know how to get everyone up and dancing that's for sure. Also super easy and professional to deal with. Totally recommend - our guests are still raving about how insanely great the band was!
Hi Jared, You guys were a massive hit on Friday! Such great music! Thank you for getting everyone up on that dance floor and ending our night so well. We had so many comments on how great you were which was really lovely. Would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone. Thanks again, Melissa & Andrew
Guys! Wow what a night on Friday! You guys were AWESOME, all of our guests were raving on how good you guys were. The music and entertainment was more than what we could ever expect. Some are saying that you guys are the best live band they have seen at a wedding in a long time! Jo and I are wrapped on how everything went on Friday, but you were one of the major highlights for us for sure! Your version of singing in my soul was perfect for our first dance! Exactly how we imagined. Apologies for my slightly below average singing skills, no Dobbyn, but close. That was wicked and i am still buzzing! Cheers Ash and Jo

This band turned our amazing wedding day into something spectacular. The atmosphere they created was unbeatable and their talent was appreciated by all of our guests. They played a large range of new and old songs, with even a few impromptu requests from the crowd. If you are looking for a younger band with an amazing sound, you cannot beat these guys. Thanks again for making our night.

We booked The Generators for our wedding at Ataahua Garden Venue in Tauranga. What an amazing band! We had such an awesome time partying that night and our guests all raved about how good the band & their song choices were. As we are Auckland based, I had been worried about choosing a band without having a chance to see them first - but needed have worried! The Generators are great musicians and made sure we all had a fantastic night. They also learned our first dance song and put a few requests in their break play list. The dance floor was never empty and Jarred was really good at keeping in contact. Thanks for such a cool night guys - you were my highlight! We highly recommend these guys!! Maria & Tony

The Generators played at our staff conference in June and were an absolute hit! We were really nervous about choosing a band for our event because the music can make or break the night, but we couldnt have been more pleased with how well it went. Our group can be a tough crowd to please sometimes but the dance floor was packed all night and everyone was raving about the band at breakfast the next morning. The guys were great to deal with and were really flexible around the set list. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will definitely use them again at our next event Keri – Lotto NZ
