Groovin' through all the best songs we all know and love!

Urban Rumour Duo, Zara.jpg


The secret is out! This spunky crew believes that in a topsy turvy world the one thing we can all hold ground on is great music, preferably the groovin' kind. Fielding some of the most bangin' bangers of all time this funky crew will melt hearts and keep knees firmly positioned UP as they carry out their one true mission: drenching that dance floor with the good times.

Urban Rumour are an experienced party band and regularly play weddings, functions and conferences around the South Island.


Zara & Tyler hold down the classic tunes and fun arrangements in pocket sized duo format.


Classic, good and honest 4pc cover band setup. Everything you need for a great time at any event.


Spice it up and add a saxophone to the mix! Super classy and adds a fantastic element to an already great act!

"We love playing weddings! There is nothing more special for us as a band than being able to be a part of a happy couple's most magical day... even if they aren't the best dancers!"
- Tyler (Drums)
