Covers Band – Streightup
Who are we?
We are a covers band comprised of four energetic people who love to get out and play music and entertain people. Most of all we want to play what people love to hear, which is easier said than done given the millions of songs that have been recorded. We have a goal of keeping things up beat so that it can be danced to or is just legendary as a ballad and sing along. We love the learning the process so always open to new song selection if it’s your Wedding, Corporate Function, Private Party or just at the local we hope we are the covers band for you.

Where do we play?
We are from Hawkes Bay but play all over the place and are always open to gigs and events outside of the Hawkes Bay area. We have played a lot in Napier along the Ahuriri strip especially the Provedore and the Bluewater Hotel or The Dutch Sports Bar. In Hastings we frequent Jarks City Side and The Common Room
We like to be involved with any function or group of people that enjoys live music. For us personally there is no better way to celebrate a Wedding or event than having a really good dance and party.
If you are after a covers band that provides some rocking good entertainment for your special event and specifically a wedding or birthday or just a private party please get in touch with us and we can talk about what we can offer. We can provide the same service to Corporate events including community and public.

“I really wanted to say a massive thanks to you and the band for all your hard work on Saturday. We got the most amazing feedback, the General Manger is over the moon and the General Manager from the Wellington Saints was blown away”
Jonathon Harry – Intense Audio and Visual
I’m glad came to see the gig last night. I had to go during the second set but I wanted to stay longer. It’s hard to get a good sound in a small concrete walled venue like that but you guys made a few adjustments and the mix got better. I could hear your vocals coming through well and the drums weren’t too loud. I repeat – the drums weren’t too loud. ( rejoice at that news!) There’s nothing worse than hearing a band with a drummer who beats shit out of his kit and all you hear is a ‘kish kish boom kish kish boom’ with the rest of the band trying to compete. So yea, I’ll tick the ‘Streight Up’ box ! Hope tonight goes well for ya. FOOOOSHA !
Streightup alway’s provide a good night and the punters always want them back.
We look forward to hearing from you.
