Uncle Monkey
New Zealand's Wedding Maestros
Uncle Monkey have performed at more weddings than any other band currently on the circuit. Their reputation is so good that they perform almost exclusively on a referral-only basis.
The 3-piece can fill a dance floor with ease, delivering a vast repertoire of over 200 songs that can cater to all ages and occasions. Happy to travel nationwide to help make your special day, the band can start during the afternoon* performing a superb 1-hour acoustic set, while guests mingle, followed by a high-energy evening show of three-50min sets.
Uncle Monkey are also extremely versatile providing the option of Steve 'the crooner' Carlin doing his 'Steve Sinatra' or 'Frankie Martini' tribute shows : Steve's website
Sam performing his 'Play It Again Sam' show on piano or 'DJ Sam' options : Sam's website
Also, Carl performing solo-acoustic to deliver that "something special" you may be looking for : Carl's website.

The band provides all PA equipment, lights and an iPod player for during the breaks / background dinner music and for after the show.
Feel free to ask any questions, peruse our songlist (below), request your preferred first-dance song and contact us for a booking.

* This has the added benefit of providing you with the PA equipment for speeches and background-music for dinner (otherwise a small fee will apply).
Video / Testimonials

"We had such a fantastic night! We had so many comments about how amazing you guys were"
Hana & Cam - wedding November 2014

"Hi guys, thanks so much for doing an extraordinary job on Saturday - you really brought the house down (one guest commented she felt like she was at a concert - enough said!) Oh and we'll never forget the big circle dancing along at the end of the night - a magic moment with all generations on the d-floor. All the best for the rest of the wedding season and thanks again for making our wedding so much fun."
Susannah & Ben - wedding January 2013

"Hi Uncle Monkey, thank you so much for a fantastic night and being so accommodating with regards to using your PA to do our speeches. The song choices were perfect throughout the wedding including the acoustic set during dinner. I can't recall a wedding where the dance floor was so packed and people were actually fist pumping to their favorite tunes. It is hard to believe there was only three of you up there as the quality of sound was great. We would recommend you to anyone looking for a band for their wedding. Many thanks."
Bruce & Nicky Woodward - wedding 2013

"Hi Carl, Steve & Sam - WOW, honestly, 1 short post on Facebook doesn't even do it justice. You guys were truly AWESOME. We loved that we could belt out all the lyrics to pretty much every song you guys played. PERFECT mix for us and for our guests of young and old. Do you want to come to the US for our American celebration!? Ha ha, not sure either of our bank accounts could foot that bill - if only plane tickets were free! :) Hope everyone made it home safely and thank you thank you thank you again. We don't know each other from a bar of soap so it really meant a lot that you went through all that effort to make it all the way up North. Steve - thanks again for singing our adapted song - legend. Cheers!"
Kate & James Aitken - May 2011

"Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding last Saturday. The music was absolutely great and loved by all - as you could probably tell by the packed dance floor! Just what we were looking for. We had an absolutely fabulous day. And the weather was perfect - if a tad hot for the boys in their morning suits! It was our dream day and we loved every minute of it. Thank you also for the loan of your PA system. Thank you once again for everything."
Alex & Tom - July 2010

"Hi guys! Just wanted to say a massive thank you for last night you guys were amazing and because of you everyone had a great time. You will be recommended to everyone, thanks again and I hope you get home safe."
Cherie & Gavin - October 2009

"Thanks again for the entertainment that Uncle Monkey provided on Sat night at Shona and my wedding. A great band helps make the night more memorable and you boyz certainly did that."
Shona & Steve - July 2009
