Lee did the most wonderful job of playing during our ceremony and canapés. He was more than we hoped for in a live performer. His music set the mood for a great celebration. He was easy to work with and even learnt a couple of songs for our day. We would not hesitate in recommending him to others.
Thanks heaps Lee! Jacqui and Joe.

Lee is amazing!
We had Lee for the full day and he played during the ceremony, canapés and all night at the reception.
During the ceremony, Lee helped create unique songs to us and just made everything that bit more special.
He knew exactly what to play at the reception to get everyone up and dancing and that he did. No one wanted to leave!
His experience was a huge bonus as he really knew what to do and when and didn’t need direction from us, which on the big day was a major help.
All the guests raved about Lee’s performance and we couldn’t recommend him more.

Thanks so much for being amazing! You knew all our favourite songs and left all our guests asking where they can find you to play at their wedding or function. You were professional and super accommodating to our crazy logistical nightmare! Thank you for making our day that little bbit more memorable!

We booked Lee after hearing him sing at another wedding as we were blown away by his talent. He has an incredible voice and is an amazing entertainer. He played during our cocktail hour on the front lawn to 130 guests and also played through our dinner service as the sun was setting which was just perfect. We still have guests raving about him! He is not only an amazing musician but has an incredible personality and great style! Do yourselves a favour and book this man. Stat. You won’t regret it.

Lee you are incredibly talented everyone just loved you!
From playing chilled out romantic music on the beach to creating one hell of a party in the evening, you were wonderful and your song selection was spot on!
We all had so much (maybe a little too much) fun on the dance floor!
We have had so many compliments about the music and have passed on your details to many.
Thank you for helping to make our day so special! We cannot thank-you enough!

Lee is an amazing musician! He played during the canapés and later in the evening with all of our guests commenting on how awesome he was. Some of them forgetting he was playing live, that’s how great he is.

I would highly recommend Lee to anyone planning to have a musician at their wedding. He was friendly,reliable,professional and hugely talented. We sent him a request for the first dance song a week before the big day and he learnt it and played it perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for more.

We would highly recommend Lee Gray to anyone who is getting married. We found him last year at the Auckland wedding expo and he was playing a mash up of Ed Sheeran and Marvin Gaye in the café. Straight away we were impressed with him and knew we wanted him to play at our wedding. He was easy to get in contact with and always quick to respond to our emails and questions. He was also very open to shaping the playlist around our wishes and making sure it was a day that we would remember. We went and watched him a couple of times at some bars over in the North Shore and had the opportunity to talk to him and get to know him.
In the lead up to the wedding Lee helped us out by looking into PA hire costs, and offering for us to use his PA at a discounted rate for the day. This was hugely helpful as it was one less job we had to do, and meant we could do all our sound gear through Lee.
On the day of the wedding Lee travelled down to Rotorua from Auckland and set up without needing a heap of direction from us which was great. He liaised with our celebrant and ensured we were good to go for the ceremony in terms of the microphone and the music to be played throughout. He put on ambient music before the ceremony which suited the mood completely, and after the ceremony played a mix of songs that contributed to the atmosphere of the occasion and kept everyone in high spirits.
In the evening he was amazing, we didn’t have an empty dance floor all night and had comments from all our guests about how much they loved him. He played for all ages and took our friends requests with a grin and a wink. He read the room really well and played songs all night that people enjoyed and could cut loose to.
Lee is an extremely talented musician and a great performer. Again would highly recommend him for anyone else planning a wedding, or any other occasion that needs great tunes played well.
Thanks so much Lee for contributing so much to our wedding day and making it better than we could have imagined.

Lee Gray is absolutely incredible! I was planning a destination wedding—traveling from Maui, Hawaii with 50 friends & family to get married near Keri Keri—planning from afar can be a big challenge since I had to find all of my vendors online. My husband and I are really into music so one of the most important things to us what that we have amazing music at our wedding. I spent a lot of time online searching for bands and musicians but when I came across Lee’s website, I knew immediately that I didn’t need to look any further. I decided to hire Lee to play both the rehearsal dinner as well as the wedding reception and I’m so glad I did. His set was fantastic, his voice was amazing and he really set the mood. In addition, Lee was super professional and accommodating and made that part of the planning process a breeze. All my guests kept commenting on how awesome Lee was and asking me how I found him. I truly can not recommend Lee enough! My one and only regret is that I didn’t have the chance to spend more time chatting with Lee because he seems like a really cool guy with great energy. We’re hoping we can find some gigs for Lee on Maui so we can enjoy his amazing musical skills in the near future. Until then…thanks a million, Lee!!!

We highly recommend Lee, fantastic from start to finish.
Lee played solo at our canapés after the ceremony and then provided the entertainment in the evening. The dance floor was busy from the first song to the last and our guests raved about Lee to us after the big day.
Lee was extremely professional, answered all our queries promptly and a top fella too. Extremely talented, he even learnt a song for us which he played on the day to perfection.
Thank you so much Lee.

Lee is just amazing! We first saw/heard him at a friend’s Wedding a full year before ours and we knew from that moment we had to have him play for us.
He played our ceremony and during drinks and nibbles for our guests as a solo act, and then was joined by a drummer and played an amazing set for the dance floor.
Lee was incredibly professional right from the start - he replied quickly to emails, answered all our questions and even suggested we come and watch him play in his duo band at the pub before we confirmed everything; just to make sure we were happy. He is a supplier that understands the significance of things being ‘just right’ for your special day.
For our ceremony he learned not one but two new songs, songs that are very special to us and made our ceremony just that much more amazing and memorable. We were off having photos while he played for our guests enjoying drinks, nibbles and games in the garden - but we’ve had so many positive comments from friends and family that we wish we’d been able to be there too!
The duo band set was awesome - Lee knows how to read a crowd and there was a good mix of oldies and new stuff - he kept everyone happy, and on the dance floor right to the very end!
We had an absolute perfect day, and Lee was an integral part of it - we almost (almost) wish we had to plan it all again so that we could book Lee a second time.
If anyone is looking for great live music for their Wedding - no matter which part of the day - I absolutely, highly recommend Lee; he really is a master of his craft!
Wedding Date: February 13, 2016
I would recommend Lee Gray to anyone looking for an amazing musician for their wedding. He was so easy to deal with, was able to play our requested songs, and sounded fantastic. Every guest we spoke to commented on how great he was and he was such a professional. Thanks again Lee, you were absolutely brilliant. Couldn’t have asked for more!
Wedding Date: January 9, 2016
Lee, I just want to say on behalf of the bride and groom, Maria and Matt (currently on route to Hawaii on their honeymoon), a huge thank you. Actually a massive thank you from everyone. Maria had the wedding so well planned that it was always going to be great, but you made it AMAZING! Your song choices, your voice, you learning their first dance song (that was perfect), your enthusiasm - made it special. You made everything easy, the booking, the payment and set-up. Everyone on the night commented on how great the music was and today, the day after, they are still talking about it and will for some time. Incredible to think that you had already played two gigs that day before ours…...Wow! It is hard to believe that one guy can put out so much sound - a full band was certainly not required! Thank you again. I, along with everyone else who attended, will be recommending you for functions. You have got something very special going on! Thank you for sharing that with us.
Wedding Date: January 30, 2016
Lee gray was amazing and really set the vibe for our wedding. All our guests were and still are raving about him. Our only regret was being so far away from his playing while photos were being taken. Would recommend him to anyone and everyone! Thankyou again Lee!

I was planning my wedding in Auckland from Christchurch, and I really had my heart set on someone singing live at the ceremony. When I first enquired about Lee in July, he already had another booking. I was panicking as I had contacted other singers/bands, but most did not reply to my enquiries. As luck would have it, Lee’s other booking fell through, so we were able to book him for the full day.
I was slightly worried about the fact that I had never met Lee, and wasn’t sure how acoustics would be like at the venue. I also had specific songs that I had learnt a first dance routine and a father-daughter dance routine to, so I had told Lee specifically when to fade out the songs. I needn’t have worried, as he was absolutely amazing! Not only did he agree to sing 2 songs for the bridal entrance and registry signing at no additional charge, Lee also came up with a song at the last minute for the congratulations, as it did not occur to me about having a song at that point in time. Although it was raining, he kept going while trying to balance an umbrella on his shoulder. When it came to the first dance, and father-daughter dance, Lee would cue me when he was about to start the music so we would be prepared. He communicated well with both the celebrant before the reception, and with the venue manager throughout the night.
I had requested for Lee to have some upbeat music to get our guests dancing after the first dance and father-daughter dance, and he absolutely nailed it! Our guests, both young and old, loved the songs Lee was performing throughout the night. I’ve had many family and guests commented on what a great performer Lee was, and many of my overseas relatives were highly impressed.
Weddings can be a stressful affair, but my dealings with Lee were always stress-free. I had forgotten to pay Lee the remaining balance before the wedding, and only remembered after the ceremony. Lee was very gracious, and asked us not to worry about it, as we tried but failed to make an online payment through our mobile data. Both my husband and I were really happy that we had Lee perform at our wedding, and have since recommended him to our friends who are engaged.

Lee was spectacular! We were planning a destination wedding in New Zealand and had to make decisions based solely on demos. After going through a bunch of demos, we listened to Lee’s demo and instantly knew he was exactly what we were looking for. We booked Lee for the whole day and have zero regrets.
Lee agreed to learn and perform all the songs we had selected for the ceremony which was fantastic. One of our bridesmaids remarked that she thought a recording was being played during the ceremony (until she saw Lee singing and was blown away). Lee performed at the after dinner party, and everyone had a great time. He has fantastic song selection and kept everyone entertained and dancing the night away. The venue manager even asked me where I found Lee and was determined to get his contacts.
He is friendly, very professional and super talented. He answered all the questions we had and even gave us great suggestions. Everyone had only good things to say about his performance.
Lee truly helped make our day magical and we are grateful!
