Listen to: Union Live (2.5 meg)

Since 1995 Union, featuring the amazing vocals of Leza Corban, have been one of Auckland's most sought after bands. Their mix of everyone's retro favourites, lively delivery and utmost professionalism have seen Union become the darlings of the corporate crowd. Leza has an inimitable knack for enticing the most reluctant of partygoers onto the dancefloor. Their upbeat repertoire of motown, 70's, 80's and popular dance hits is a winning combination.

Leza has gathered together some of the country's most talented and polished musicians in a partnership that has flourished and got more exciting over the years. You may recognise Leza from her work with the Strawpeople as the vocalist on the APRA Silver Scroll winning Sweet Disorder, as well as many television appearances, three Christmas in the Park shows and two Symphony under the Stars concerts. She has sung with Renee Geyer and the Auckland Philharmonia as well as many of our country's top musicians like Debbie Harwood, Eddie Raynor, Graham Brazier and Tina Cross to name a few.

The newest band member, all the way from Sweden, is Caroline Lekstrom, who exploded onto the NZ scene with her stunning appearance as Shakira on TV One's Stars in their Eyes. She hides a gutsy vocal power in a petite package.

Union creates a musical style that is hard to beat. Add horns, percussion and guest vocalists to expand the experience and you have something very special on your hands!

How refreshing it is to dance to really great songs played live by really great musicians.

Union have been the choice of the city's top event coordinators, headlining at the huge Louis Vuitton opening party for 4000 guests, and at the exclusive prizegiving ceremony for Oracle and Alinghi. Union's clients are many and varied, from fundraisers to huge corporate bashes to society weddings and birthday celebrations for captains of industry.

Leza's utmost professionalism and the band's love of performing will ensure your function will be THE one to remember.

what they say about union

You guys rule - one of the highlights of each year for me is catching up with you and the boys. Thank you yet again for an absolutely fabulous night
Sarah Nimmo - Strategic Finance

Dear Leza I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and Union on behalf of Lewisham Committee for a fantastic night at Toto last night. The feedback has been fantastic and I was pleased to see the dance-floor packed all night! (My feet are feeling a little jaded today!)
Helen Sneyd - Restaurant Assoc of NZ

WOW, you guys just nail it EVERY TIME, from that first note to the encore, the guests just love it and don't leave the dance floor. Once again Union's professionalism and outstanding musical talents were a key attribute to the function's success. Keep up the great work and I look forward to working with you again

"It was truly impressive to see how you encouraged our rather tired guests onto the dance floor, to the point where no one wanted you to stop singing."
Christine Belanger, Event Director, Louis Vuitton Cup

"The song selection was superb; versatility ensured that the different tastes of the audience were catered for and was conducive to everybody's enjoyment."
Sacha Olsen, Vodafone Warriors

"The party couldn't have been any better!! you guys were superb and we have ad SO many comments about how fantastic you were!"
Peta Freeman, private function.

"The songs you chose were perfect for the crowd and they were performed so well, there was no choice but to get up and boogie. I was exptremely impressed by the rhythm section - extremely tight with a big sound and the vocal and harmonies were absolutely superb."
Anthony Key for Caltex Australia Conference.

"[my client] was considering flying a band in from Sydney, he was not convinced that a kiwi band could get so many people from so many different countries up and dancing. There was no doubt on the night that you did in fact surpass all our expectations. It rocked! There is nothing quite like being in the midst of thousands of writhing bodies and smiling faces... it was universally hailed as a terrific party and much of this is due to you guys."
Cath Lewis for Dawsons Catering
