Testimonials: 

"The Audience danced from the first song to the last song.  Everyone loved the band.  Thank you so much" - Pierre Fernandes PMINZ {2016}

"On behalf of Shine, I want to thank HALO for performing at Shine’s 25th Anniversary event, ‘The Light at the End of the Tunnel’. Our event at the Heritage Hotel was a huge success. It helped to raise the profile of Shine and our cause amongst the audience of high profile New Zealanders, and raised more than $80,000 for our life-saving services. People have commented on the great band, but the most obvious sign that you all play fabulous music was that everyone was up and dancing within minutes (seconds?) of when you started – including myself. Thanks again for your fabulous performance and for supporting Shine and our event!" - Holly Carrington, Communications and Development Director Shine {2015}

“HALO played at our private party. They were professional from beginning to end, setting up during the day and sound checking everything to packing up at the end of the night – it was seamless and super organised. As for the entertainment part of the evening, they were fantastic, all of our guests have been raving about the band. They interacted with the crowd and had everyone on the dance floor having a great time. They even went to the trouble of learning extra songs for us that we requested. I can’t compliment them enough!” - Celia and Philip Crawshaw, private party {2015}

"I would like to pass on my thanks to HALO for another outstanding performance at the 2015 NZ Masters Games. After their superb performance in 2013 HALO were the first band I considered when putting together the line-up for the 2015 Games. From the moment they hit the stage the 3000+ audience went crazy. I would have no hesitation in recommending HALO for any function." - Ron Heaps, Entertainment Manager NZ Masters Games {2015}

"We have used HALO for a few years now, and have found them to be both wonderfully organised and highly talented. We always get a mass of compliments about their performances, and have never seen so many people getting up to dance! Sebastian takes the time to work with the client over the theme and feel of the event, and to make sure all timing and equipment needed is there. I would recommend the band to anyone who asks - they are absolutely awesome, a great energy, and so much fun!" - Ashleigh Garrett, Executive Assistant Ricoh {2013}

“HALO was AWESOME! Michael Murphy and the ladies Ellen and Sharon, and the rest of the band were really good and we enjoyed how they interacted with the us in the audience. They played a good mix of classics and current songs so everyone could have a sing and dance to something they knew. I would definitely recommend this band to others, a dream to deal with from start to finish HALO are fantastic!” -Tania Cummins- Retail Support Co-ordinator, Harvey World Travel {2013}

“KPMG Auckland has worked with HALO for over 8 years for our annual staff and partners event. This year they learnt ‘Hall of Fame’ especially for us (as it is a bit of a KPMG theme song), and they totally nailed it. We have always found HALO professional to work with and are an absolute given for our event now. From start to finish they had a diverse crowd having a fantastic time of the dance floor! Thanks so much HALO see you next year” - Justine Todd –Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, KPMG Auckland Social Club {2013}
