They were so good that we didn’t think twice about asking them back again
Superbad Soul Section performed at our work function last year, and they were so good that we didn’t think twice about asking them back again this year. As anticipated, the band was a hit once again and managed to get everyone on the dance floor and singing along. The band played a range of songs so there was something for everyone. Superbad Soul Section was also a pleasure to deal with – they came in early to set up, and packed down and we didn’t need to worry about a thing which made for a very smooth running event. We would definitely get them back again.
…a superb band!
Superbad Soul Section are a superb band! We love to boogie here at Trade Me and they had all the tunes to keep everyone on the dance floor. Great sounds and such a lovely crew. Thanks so much, we’ll be in touch for our next party! Steph Lumsden – Event Coordinator, Trade Me.

Superbad are… WOW!
Superbad Soul Section are ….Wow. Its impossible not to party when they are pumping tune after tune. They were the ultimate end to our amazing wedding and couldn’t have been easier to deal with from an admin point of view. They also nailed our song requests better than we could have imagined. If you want a band to give your guests something to talk about for years to come these are certainly the guys and girls to do it. Thanks so much Louis, Katie, Ben and the rest of the team. Much appreciated, Leighton and Brooke.
They were incredible!
Superbad came highly recommended from our wedding photographer and other suppliers and did not disappoint. They were incredible. They had awesome tunes, great vibes and just rocked. Everyone was talking about how great the band was the next day! They are a very talented bunch and an asset for Wellington! As the bride, I didn’t leave the dance floor from the moment they started! They had everyone up dancing – my aunts, parents, friends and all ages. They appeased all tastes with solid tunes with their own awesome twist. I can’t recommend them enough to make your special day even more memorable!
Superbad were a fantastic and professional group who created an awesome atmosphere at the bar. They played amazingly and were always upbeat. They played every Friday night and were a great addition to the bar. Always arrived on time and without disrupting the normal running of the bar.
It was a pleasure to work with Superbad on this high profile industry awards night.
The professionalism of the team in both the organising and on the night, ensured a seamless production for the event.
We hired Superbad Soul Section for our wedding, and we were very impressed. Superbad learned new songs that we requested (lots of soul and dancey numbers), and also, a special slowed down version of The Way You Make Me Feel for our first dance, which was a lovely surprise. They sounded awesome and had us dancing all evening.
Additionally, the guys are very professional – their communication with us before the wedding was great, they came to set up and sound check early in the day before guests arrived as requested, and generally a great bunch of lads. We highly recommend them.
