Union, featuring the amazing vocals of Leza Lee, is one of Auckland’s most sought after bands. Their mix of everyone’s retro favourites, lively delivery and utmost professionalism have seen Union become the darlings of the corporate crowd. Leza has an inimitable knack of enticing the most reluctant of partygoers onto the dancefloor.
Union have been the choice of the city’s top event co-ordinators, headlining at the huge Louis Vuitton Opening Party for 4000 guests, and were invited to play at the exclusive prizegiving ceremony for Oracle and Alinghi.
Their regular corporate clients include Vodafone, Frucorp, the Relish Group and Dawsons. Union featured two years in a row at the highly successful Waiheke Wine Festival at Cable Bay Vineyards as well as doing an annual concert at Ngatarawa Vineyards for 500+ guests, the last of which sold out two months prior to the event!
In 2003 they travelled to Fiji to perform at the Fiji Museum Fundraiser and also to Tonga to perform for the Crown Prince and dignitaries at the opening of a large venture there. They also continue to feature at Auckland's own Sky City and draw one of the largest followings of all the acts.
Vocalist Leza Lee leads the band through Motown, Soul, Disco and 80’s dance hits, as well as a sophisticated repertoire of jazz ballads when the occasion requires it. They regularly perform as a jazz combo at some of Auckland’s most discerning venues.
Leza has gathered together some of the country’s most seasoned and polished musicians to form Union, a partnership that has lasted ten years, almost unheard of in the music industry. As for Leza, you may recognise her from her work with the Strawpeople (Silver Scroll winning Sweet Disorder, Scared of Flying and other singles), as well as her television work on several Christmas in the Park shows and two Symphony Under the Stars concerts. She has sung with the inimitable Renee Geyer and the Auckland Philharmonia as well as most of New Zealand’s top musical artists like Debbie Harwood, Eddie Raynor and Mike Chunn to mention a few.
Leza’s love of performing and utmost professionalism will ensure your function will be one to remember.

Union's performance was sensational. The songs chosen were perfect for the crowd.
Your professionalism and ease with which you were able to adapt to the slight change in our program was great.
From the brief that NZBIO provided to Leza, she was amazing! Our one goal was to get people up and dancing, and Union achieved that without any issues. They were a great band that adapted to the night, the audience. The band were professional and very entertaining as well! Thank you very much!
