From a humble beginning in rural NZ, Braden Southee has moved around to be involved in our music industry, private tuition with maestros north and south, touring with premier rock bands like The Feelers and recording in Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studios, studying at Otago University and lots more. The Spanish guitar is an incredibly romantic instrument, of which it’s repertoire has countless possibilities to make your ceremony extra special. Cocktail hour with Spanish guitar maintains the continuity, and makes for a very relaxed atmosphere.

“A creative talent who plays from the heart, has an extensive repertoire and all of this wrapped up in a thoroughly nice young man.
I have been fortunate to attend 3 outdoor events where Braden created music to reflect each ones specialness. His music also appeared to interact with the environment in rather unique ways. I particularly remember the first event in a very large garden butterflies seemingly danced over the flowers in time to the music. The second event was near a large wooded area with loud chirping birds who when the music started went from a big loud noise to one being in harmony with the music. The last event occurred in the wet, the rain certainly eased up when the music started – call it coincidence but I prefer the magic of the moment and the music.” Four final words: Truly memorable, intuitive, flawless”
“I’ve been blessed to have been at two events which Braden performed at, one of which was my own wedding.
Each song is absolutely enchanting – taking you on a journey of emotions, resulting with overwhelming feelings of joy and appreciation. He was the talk of the wedding and he has firmly etched many beautiful moments into wonderful memories. Braden was very professional to deal with and is a brilliant human being. I can only hope to hear more of his magic in the future. Encore!!!”
“I received lots of feedback from my guests about Braden’s performance, he knew what to play, and played it really well, people responded and everyone had a great time. The showroom had a classy atmosphere, of which Braden and his guitar played a really big part.”

We had the pleasure of having Braden play at our wedding in Wanaka in the middle of April this year. We could not have asked for a more professional, talented and genuine musician to serenade our day. Aside from Braden’s incredible talent on the guitar, he also went above and beyond to make the entire process simple and stress free through meeting with us to perform a few various options for the entrance song, exit song and canapé theme. Braden’s playing was just stunning, and we received so many compliments afterwards about how great he was. We really couldn’t recommend him highly enough!! Thanks again Braden.
