Vintage Blue



Vintage Blue is a guitar and vocal duo comprising of Jenny & Rob Payne who have been performing together for over 15 years. They met whilst studying Jazz and their passion for performing music blossomed from there.

Vintage Blue’s sound is unique, with Tui award winning Jenny’s sultry yet at times ethereal voice, matched with Rob’s outstanding guitar chops. They pour love and soul into their music, a fusion of mellow jazz grooves, their unique spin on pop music and a few originals thrown in for good measure.

They have extensive experience, performing at countless weddings, private functions and corporate events. They also perform regularly on the local music scene, playing at many well known venues throughout Christchurch.

Past Corporate Clients:

ASB, Anthony Harper, Christchurch City Council, Christchurch Casino VIPs, Aviva, Northlands Mall, SPCA, Mico Bathrooms, Hampton Lea Gardens, Singapore Airlines and many more!

“We thoroughly recommend Vintage Blue for a polished, professional performance. The pair were extremely responsive, given such short notice, and very approachable and sensitive to our needs during the planning process. In performance, they surpassed our expectations and delivered a harmonious, melodic recital which decidedly enhanced our anniversary soiree. Rob's slick accompaniment, on jazz guitar, complemented Jenny's dulcet vocals, to create a memorable and mellifluous backdrop for our special occasion. A heartfelt thanks to you both.”


“We had heard Jenny and Rob quite a few times at various locations before we got engaged. We loved listening to them and were always impressed at the many different genres they could play. Jenny has such a beautiful voice and Rob is an extremely talented musician. They were an obvious choice for our special day, we never even considered anyone else. We had quite specific ideas for our ceremony and nothing was a problem for Jen and Rob. They event itself was completely stress free and numerous guests commented about how nice it was having live music, not to mention how great the two of them were. We couldn’t be happier with how the ceremony went. Jenny and Rob helped us create a romantic, magical moment in time which we will treasure forever.”


“Thank you for performing at our Mico Martini Party a few weeks ago. Your sounds certainly added to the atmosphere, creating a classic yet sensual sound throughout our showroom. Vintage Blue, you were the perfect fit and we can’t wait to book you again. And we loved that you also dressed for the occasion”


“Thank you so much for playing such wonderful, beautiful and scene setting music at our mothers day event yesterday at Hampton Lea Gardens. It really made the day having the live music and your choice of music was fantastic. Thanks thanks thanks - will book you again for next year”


“Vintage Blue played at my wedding and as soon as they started performing I knew I had chosen the right band. They had to perform outside in rather chilly temperatures but the sound was up to recording standards. They provided a nice background music for everyone to listen, have a chat, and just relax to and it was exactly the atmosphere I wanted for my reception. Thank you once again for your great contribution to my special day.”


“Vintage Blue are a polished act, creating the perfect backdrop for a sophisticated event. They worked in seamlessly with the arrangements, crafting their set lists to match the occasion, the setting and the audience. Highly recommended.”


“Thanks again Jenny and Rob for helping to make our wedding garden party the amazing day that it was! Your relaxed but professional style, unique and polished sound and the wide range of songs you were able to play helped us to create the perfect atmosphere for our sunny afternoon get together. So many of our guests commented positively about you guys at the time and have continued to do so afterwards. We would highly recommend you guys to anyone for a private event both during the day or at night. We hope you guys enjoyed the day as well!”


“Hi Jenny and Rob ...... a big thanks again for making the night special for our attendees. We loved your sets and really appreciated your flexibility.”
