Founded in 2008, Findaband has built an enviable reputation as New Zealand’s leading live entertainment agency. In 2019, with a decade of experience behind us, we launch in Nashville TN. Right from day one, we've focused on quality over quantity, and building strong relationships with our artists and our clients. We feel incredibly lucky to do what we do.
WE CREATE INCREDIBLE NIGHTS
We believe in the power of beautiful songs, captivating live performances and voices that inspire. We're dedicated to working with the very best artists and a discerning clientele who trust us to consistently deliver magical nights. Over the past decade, we have been integrally involved in thousands of corporate events, weddings, festivals, product launches, conferences and brand activations.
We invest in our artists for the long term, producing professional video and photography content to ensure our clients can see exactly what they are going to get when they work with us. We offer a “start to finish” service for our clients, guiding them through the booking process, from selecting their artist through to ensuring everything goes to plan on the night.
We’re Vanessa and Sam, two musicians from New Zealand. Together, we're building Findaband in Nashville and taking it nationwide.
