The Mainland Big Band is a very experienced dance band with a long history of music-making in Christchurch and the Canterbury region. We perform regularly across the region, as well as for private weddings, receptions and large formal, corporate dinner-dances.

We are a dedicated team of up to 17 musicians who rehearse weekly under the direction of a talented Musical Director. We have a constantly-expanding repertoire, and with more than 50 years’ experience, we are well-equipped to help you plan a programme to suit your particular needs.

If you would like to hire us for your event, please do get in touch with us using the details on our contact page. We would be happy to tailor an event to your specific requirements!

The Band is Back!
