To tell such a story we must wind the clock back to 2007-2008. Our lead vocalist of our number one event band ‘Let’s Groove Tonight’ and CEO Chris Ninni found himself frustrated and disappointed with the quality of the Sydney cover band scene. You see, Chris was a hired hand, the fill-in or feature artist many acts and clients would request for a particular event. This is a great position to be in except for one fact, every night Chris found himself working with new musicians in new configurations that simply weren’t meeting his own personal expectations. Don’t get me wrong, these musicians were all fantastic but as a band, they were weak, disjointed and deeply uninspiring. Driving home from every performance Chris constantly pondered the notion “there has to be a better way”, and so in 2009, “Let’s Groove Tonight” was born.
Early 2009 Chris was on a mission to band together the finest like-minded musicians Sydney had to offer. The goal was clear, crystal in fact. “Let’s Groove Tonight” was going to go against the grain and deliver a product like no other for the Australian scene. The days of throw together lineups were numbered. This is a new beast, one with a consistent line up that performs together week in, week out. A band that is truly a band. One that can reflect its individual qualities yet react as one.
Chris’s vision and pursuit for excellence has seen “Let’s Groove Tonight” thrive at the heights of the Australian corporate, wedding and events scene for many years now. How “Let’s Groove Tonight” became Australia’s most dedicated, respected and loved party band is no secret. Upholding the industry’s highest work ethic and values is what we’re known for. Our personalised client approach keeps past clients coming back and our attention to detail instils confidence with new clientele.
It was inevitable that in 2014, once ‘Let’s Groove Tonight’ had found its groove (pardon the pun!) Evoke Entertainment was born. Why not build our beliefs of quality and consistent entertainment with a client focused principle across all entertainment forms? DJs, strings, MCs, spotlight shows, Party Bands, Jazz trios, just to name a few.
Today Evoke Entertainment is run by a team of passionate and dedicated musicians, striving to provide the absolute best service for each and every client. Whether the event is a huge corporate, wedding, private event or club/hotel entertainment, we have acts to offer on all occasions. Our energy and enthusiasm does not falter on any performance.

Choosing to book with Evoke Entertainment you will be working with Let’s Groove Tonight’s two lead singers; Chris and Emma. Chris is your ideas man, nurturing your event with the best suited entertainment for you and your guests.

“Emma and Chris are a dream team; our event was so amazing I have all my guests asking for their details to book them for their own events. From dealing with them pre-event, having them perform and entertain us on the night, to the thank yous and follow ups post event. It has been an absolute pleasure. Thank you and see you next year!” – Sandra 16.12.17 (Luna Park)
