Kia ora,
Unfortunately Sweet Assassin are hanging up our guns. COVID-19, work commitments, life pressures, yada-yada, have had their way with us and we have reluctantly decided to call it quits. Thank you to everyone who has been part of our journey over the last 4 years.
Kia Kaha, and don't stop believing ;)

Sweet Assassin are not your average covers band. We're a diverse, multinational act. Two guys, two girls. Decades of combined live professional performance experience between us. As one of Wellington's top covers bands, our mission is simple: to deliver you a high-energy night of pop, disco, funk, soul and rock hits, old and new. We'll get your guests up on the dance floor, keep them there, and give them a night to remember.

A little bit of feedback from our clients . . .

I booked Sweet Assassin for my birthday party, and couldn't have made a better decision. I lost track of the people who came up and said, 'What a fantastic band! How did you find them?' I'd highly recommend them for their professionalism, musicianship, and great music choices."
