“Having already worked with Jaimie, I decided to step things up a notch and commission Zoot Music to write original music for my opening show in 2019 for New Zealand Fashion Week. Nathan absolutely nailed it by writing and scoring music that was moody yet sophisticated and was the perfect contrast to my collection. I so love his work - it’s awesome!”

"With this double duo, not only do you get an incredible performance from two very talented individuals,
you get the most beautiful, unique, world class experience that will surprise and delight your audience"

“Launching the most expensive hotel suite in the country came with lofty expectations, and Jaimie and Nathan brought a layered, on-brand, eclectic and elevated set to the mix. Nathan’s trio kicked off proceedings, and later the DJ set featuring Nathan and Jaimie expertly weaved and adapted to the crowd to end on a packed dancefloor. Couldn’t recommend this dynamic duo more.”

Imogen O’Neill, Creative Director, Undertow Media

"Jaimie was FANTASTIC! She played a great set during dinner and drinks and really created a cool and sophisticated vibe for the evening. We would definitely recommend her!"

'Denizen Magazine employed the services of Mr&Mrs Haines for our inaugural Denizen Heroes event in 2016, with 450 guests in attendance. Nathan and Jaimie did an amazing job - their ability to read a crowd and building and softening the mood when the mood required it ensured our guests were thoroughly entertained, with many leaving the event raving about the music.'
