We're dreamers and creators. We make magic nights. We believe in the power of beautiful music, captivating movement and words that inspire. We do what we do because we love it, and no one does it quite like us.
From the day that your event is little more than a twinkle in your eye, through to the moments of truth on the big night, we've got everything under control. This is not our first rodeo – we have been integrally involved in hundreds of corporate events, festivals, product launches, conferences and brand activations. Nothing fazes us, nothing is impossible and nothing is too big or too small.
After a couple of years performing in Dunedin's student pubs followed by less than six months working in a "real job", Sam founded music booking agency Find A Band in 2008. 7 years and many coffees later, Sam and Peter had the idea of offering everything else that goes into a great event, and work began on The Empire Agency in 2015. Sam's career to date includes curating event entertainment for some of New Zealand’s most recognised brands, including the All Blacks, Air New Zealand, GrabOne, NZ Herald, Fonterra, 2 Degrees, Moa Brewing Company and many more. Sam has written and recorded two albums with rock band Black River Drive and co-founded wedding sites Auckland Weddings and Wellington Weddings in 2013 and 2015 respectively. Sam is presently writing songs for a third album, and working on a new project aimed at inspiring people to create their own online businesses.
