Absolutely made our night, everyone was on the dance floor until we had to kick people out and we have since been told by a tonne of people how good you guys were. We were recommended Black Salt by some friends, music on the night was the most important thing to us as everyone LOVES to dance and you guys did not disappoint. Also you guys are so chilled and lovely and were a pleasure to have around.

These guys are the best, they get everyone up and dancing so make sure you have a big dance floor; you will need it. You won’t be disappointed.

I just cannot overstate how awesome Black Salt is! We have been fortunate enough to have them as our entertainment on a couple of occasions for mid winter functions and there will undoubtedly be many more to come. I loved how they also dressed to our theme. They have become so popular and they’re a great bunch of guys. Their song lists are comprehensive and cater for all ages and musical tastes. The dance floor is always packed from the first song to the last and I can’t wait for the next function to get Black Salt along.

Just wanted to say how much Black Salt totally made our event on Friday – they are fantastic and such really lovely guys. Heaps of great feedback on them today in the office. Totally made the night.

A huge thank you for helping make out midwinter Charity Christmas Dinner at SkyCity such a huge success. The band was simply brilliant – and it was very kind of you to donate your performance to the cause. Your musicianship, repertoire and connection with the audience was truly excellent – and there's no doubt you're one of the best bands in the country. Your support enabled the Trust to donate $220,000 to the government's Christchurch Earthquake Appeal and Kidney Kids – an outstanding effort!

I was recommended Black Salt as a great band to try for our Christmas party from a couple of our staff members. They certainly set the standard and I don't think our team stopped dancing! When we celebrated our 20th birthday it was with real confidence that we asked Black Salt to play for us again and they certainly didn't disappoint. They were easy to deal with leading up to our event and nothing was a problem. They remained flexible during the evening as our speeches ran on a little and really seemed to have as much fun with us as we did with them! Thanks guys, we look forward to using you again!

On behalf of the Vodafone Warriors and everyone who attended our Awards Evening last night, we would like to thank you and all the guys in the band for being a part of our event and for a fantastic performance. We have had so much great feedback; it's always nice to know that you have pleased those that attend your functions!

CourierPost recently hired Black Salt to perform at their Sales conference in Rotorua. Having never had a live band at such an event, we were a little nervous about how well it would go down. Black Salt did such an amazing job, they had most of the people dancing all night and even had some of the keen Karaoke folk up singing their debut songs. Black Salt have been put on the top of the list to play at the conference next year – we better get in first and book, because if we miss out I was told that I would be fired!! – BLACK SALT, please confirm my booking for 2011. Thanks again guys, you were amazing.

Conference was fabulous and your band was great - went down very well with our members.

A huge thanks to you guys! I've heard nothing but awesome praise for the band. The students all had a great night and the ones I talked to during the clean up yesterday raved and raved about the band. And to put it in perspective for you... (cant' remember if I already told you this, but)... apparently last year the students were queuing at 11pm to get out of the place and no one was dancing anyway, whereas you guys had them chanting "One more, one more". Excellent work! I have to write up a review for whoever will organise it next year, so I will definitely be recommending you guys and passing on contact details. Anyway, as I say, fantastic experience all round, not just the performance, you made it easy to organise. Thanks very much to all of you and I hope you become the St Cuths Ball yearly band for as long as you're all performing. Thanks,

Everyone raved about how good you were; it really made the night. And thanks for going with the flow (I expected speeches to be SHORT & sweet, but ya get that). Seriously everyone said it was one of the best weddings they had been to and you guys were a big part of that so pass on our big up's to your band mates. All the best for the future. Thanks again,

Just wanted to thank you all again for coming down on Saturday and giving us such a good night. You guys were on fire! Even better than when i first heard you. Everyone loved you and won't stop talking about how good you are. Even the bar owner who was a bit grumpy about me having a band was raving about you yesterday. He was totally into it. And as for the bouncers... once the rock songs were on they were away - never have we seen them literally bouncing like that before! So I wouldn't be surprised if sometime in future u get another invite down to TK from someone…

The boys were fabulous and were the talk of yesterday and still today! I've had so many fantastic comments about them and have had lots of people asking for their contact details – so there may be quite a bit of business coming your way. I have some great photos of them so will flick them through when I get a chance. Please pass on my HUGE thanks to them all for taking the time away from their families and friends and giving up their weekend to travel to Tauranga and help us party the night away. I hope they had a good time too.

Big thanks to you and the rest of Black Salt for being so awesome last week! We had a great time and the music was fantastic - loads of guests at the wedding commented on how good you guys were too. We will be sure to recommend you to others for special events, and just let us know if you would like a written testimonial. Thank you again!!!

Thank you, you guys were amazing & really helped make the event a knock out success. Feedback from the team has been incredible. I'm glad you guys were available to play for us, I love your sound & it was perfect for our event on Saturday.

Firstly, thank you so much for contributing to such a great event last night. You guys were fabulous and our client was very impressed with the band and how you had everyone on the dance floor.

  • Metromedia Sales Conference (January 2007)

On behalf of my wife and I (still a novelty!) we would like to thank you guys immensely for such a great performance. We had an absolute cracker of a day, the weather was great to us (very unlike Auckland), and we just really enjoyed the day. The evening was, of course where the fun was at (at least for everyone else!), and you guys helped to create the mood and played fantastically. Thank you for playing the song of our choice for the first dance (or shall we say shuffle) and also for repeating it later. Needless to say, everyone had a great time, and we have already had to pass on your contact details to friends who will, hopefully, be contacting you regarding future events. The feedback from everyone is "the band was excellent".

I just want to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the band for really making our Christmas party a hit. Everyone is still buzzing this morning and I've had lots of comments on how great the band was. A big, big thank you.
