Mister Speaker






Introducing mister speaker

Mister Speaker are an Auckland based funk and soul powerhouse here to take you back to a funkier time!

Vocalist Tane Tari and his 8 piece band perform authentic, dynamic funk and soul music from artists such as James Brown, Bill Withers, and Sly & the Family Stone, as well as their own funk-flavoured takes on modern artists such as Beyonce, Gorillaz, Bruno Mars, and Ed Sheeran.

Mister Speaker play the music they love with conviction, authenticity, skill, and passion. 


Live at The Lula Inn


corporate events

Mister Speaker bring a wealth of experience to the stage for every corporate client. They have performed at corporate events for many of NZ's leading brands, and are well suited to events with hundreds or even thousands in need of seriously good entertainment.

Mister Speaker will work in with you, your venue, AV team and any other stakeholders to ensure a smooth process leading up to the big night. On the big day they'll setup and soundcheck early (typically mid afternoon) so everything is in place well before the event begins.

On the night, expect the dancefloor to start filling up from the very beginning. This is a band that will make crowds of all size dance, no matter who they are.


Get up!
