From marketing to performance these guys are professional. Initially, I was impressed by their marketing & promotional material and wasn’t let down by their performance. Kuta Groove play a great mix of classics to top 40’s music with a unique funky reggae acoustic sound. They have performed at Tuggerah Lakes Golf Club at weddings and our weekly entertainment and now are regular performers due to their popularity with member, visitors and staff.

We could not speak highly enough about Kuta Groove Band, they played at our wedding ceremony and reception at Stillwaters restaurant, Central Coast. They were just so fantastic. The atmosphere they created was so amazing they had everyone off there chairs and dancing all night long, it’s exactly what we wanted, it was such a great thing to see. They had such a great range of all types of music that young and old could sing and dance too. All of our guests could not stop saying how amazed they were of how brilliantly they play. Budi Bone’s lovely nature was a pleasure and so easy to deal, he really made our wedding what it was.
Thanks again guys.

You boys were at our daughters wedding last night. Your music really completed the night. Everyone was up and dancing, singing along. Your song list is extensive Requests came thick and fast and nothing was too much trouble. We all demanded more time and you happily accepted. My husband enjoyed the music so much he wants us to throw a party just so we can book you and listen again. Awesome work guys. – Kim ‘Hanly’ Hutchinson.

A huge thanks from Josh & I too Budi, we had a ball and somehow….you managed to get the groom to dance. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect that such a special night xxxx

Hi Budi,
Now i’ve finally returned to normal and am just getting a chance to send a BIG THANKYOU! Jason and I can’t thank you enough for playing at our wedding.
We had an absolutely amazing day and we will look back on it always as a very fun, relaxed day shared by all of our great family & friends. The rain may have changed the day, but it certainly didn’t ruin it – and despite not getting to use the grounds as a picnic theme as we had hoped, many guests commented that it was the best wedding that they’d been to and they all loved your music. So thank you once again.
Kind Regards, Tina and Jason

After seeing Kuta Groove Band play at a friend’s wedding in Central Coast we had no hesitation in booking them to play at both our ceremony and reception. They played a brilliant acoustic set which set the tone for our beach ceremony beautifully, they then livened up the dance floor at the reception with a great mix of tunes. We had so many great comments from our guests!
Thanks again Budi and Cha!
Adrian and Karen Rubin

Budi Bone, in his Kuta Groove Duo, played at our wedding on 1 May 2009 and were absolutely fantastic! Budi is an extremely talented wedding singer and percussionist who is also lovely and an absolute dream to work with. In the lead-up to the wedding, he gave us an extensive song list from which to choose our favourites (of which there were many!), and Budi took it from there. On the night, Kuta Groove Band were such a hit! They read the crowd brilliantly and, while sticking to the songs we love, knew how to keep them entertained. They had everybody on the dance floor, and many guests commented to us later that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to – I think this was in no small part due to the fantastic live music at our wedding reception. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you, Budi and Kuta Groove!

Hi Budi,
Hope you’re well.
Fi and I have just returned from our honeymoon and we want to thank you very much for the fantastic job Kuta Groove Band did at our wedding ceremony and reception. We could not have been happier with the live music – you guys played beautifully. We had such a fun day and the music created just the right atmosphere. It was a shame the weather meant we couldn’t set up at the RSL as we had hoped but we really appreciate the way you guys soldiered on.Your playing of ‘Here comes the sun’ for our bridal waltz was a highlight of the day and we will never forget it.Thanks for making it so special.If there is anything we can do to support you in the future please let us know. We would wholeheartedly to recommend you if we get the chance. Thanks again and we look forward to hearing you play again soon.
Tim and Fi Berkman

Hi Budi,

We cant wait to watch you perform again soon! Thankyou so much again for making our wedding reception so much fun.
Andrew and Jade Graham (

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding in Hunter Valley. You were able to play all our favourite songs and our guests favourites, no matter what age. It was great that you let our parents and friends sing for us, it made the night even more magical.

We had such an amazing time at our engagement party last December and were so lucky to be able to book Budi Bone at such late notice. We had so much positive feedback from our family and friends about the music, it really made our night special! Especially as I am so fussy with making sure the music sets the right scene and everyone is enjoying it. Budi even had Paul’s great Uncle up dancing! His son made a comment that he couldn’t remember the last time he saw him up dancing!
We were so happy to see Budi again at our friends 30th birthday most recently, where you got the party going yet again! Its was such a pleasure to have Budi play at our engagement party. Budi were so organised, professional, friendly and well prepared and knew exactly when to play the right songs at the right time to lift the party.All the very best for your future gigs!

Dearest Budi, I’ve got married for 11 years and will be 12 on 6th July. Do you remember how big was the ‘salut’ for your band in Sahid Bali when we married? I can’t forget how you and your group played ‘Di Kuta Bali’ when I and my husband sang it ! That was…… UNFORGETTABLE!! We feel different when you moved to Aussie – means you always the best. Guys, Budi is a low profile with the highest professional character. NO DOUBT TO CONTACT HIM for your party! Kiss for Tara & Makai, and you for sure.

Hi Guys,
Just wanted to thank you both again for coming to our party Saturday afternoon. It was so great to have you, we really enjoyed your style and music!! You guys really made our party a lot of fun and all of our guests commented on how great you guys were.

So thanks again!! I will definitely pass your name on to my friends. I really appreciated how much you involved our kids, and also for letting us have a sing at the end!!
Anthea & Troy –

Hi I would just like to thank you for playing in my garage for my 50th Saturday 12th oct. You guys are amazing . I have had so many people sending me messages all week with how good the party was and how great you guys are. They are all saying that you can play anything and sound amazing . So if it was for how good the band was it may not of been as good. I Will get you back again even if its just for a Sunday session with friends and would full recommend you to anyone that needs a great band for any function in Newcastle. I will also be trying to get you some gigs around the Belmont area so we can all come and watch you play again.
Well thanks again Judy.

Hi Budi,I just wanted to thank you once again for a wonderful night. Your music ‘made the night’ so very special. Everyone there commented on how fantastic you guys were and I am sure if one of them has a function and need a band, you will be on top of their list. From a business perspective, you are very organised and efficient and it was a pleasure dealing with you as everything was extremely well organised. Well done and thanks again.Dina and Gordon Batt.

Thank you very much for the great music, I really enjoyed it and many of the guests at my party commented on it as well. You helped to make the day a success and I appreciate it greatly. Hope to see and hear you again in the future.

I want to say a very big THANK YOU for making my Birthday party extremely special and loads of fun. Everyone just loved the music and are still talking about it.
Thanks so much Budi. Cheers. Kel.

“For a backyard party, Kuta Groove Band were perfect. Chilled background sounds for the beginning, which everyone including the littlies loved, then everyones favourite party tunes later. Mostly everyone ended up singing and dancing and didn’t want them to every finish playing. Kuta Grooves made our party what it was. They were really organised, great personalities and went out of their way to perform at our party. We will be taking every chance to see Budi and his band play at gigs in the future and would recommend them to anyone wanting to make a party one they’ll never forget”

Kuta Groove Duo are a lot of fun and their song choices are amazing. Good to just sit back, listen and chill with friends.. or to get up and show off your dance moves:) These guys rock!!!!

After attending one of their Gig’s I was highly impressed by the professionalism and the diverse range of song that Kuta Groove Duo has…I will be attending many more of their gigs in Central Coast and have advised numerous friends to do the same

Budi and his muso friend is one of the coolest bands on the Central Coast – with their funky, groovy type of music Budi works his magic on the drums & Cha with his funky guitar rhythms will make sure you won’t be sitting down! 5 Stars!
