Disco Superstars BONEY M (Featuring Maizie Williams) are back performing all of their Greatest Hits for an exclusive show in Auckland at Bruce Mason Centre.

Their high energy, sing along shows feature outrageous costumes and a wicked live disco-funk backing band, for an out of this world experience.
BONEY M’s insanely catchy songs gave them an amazing run of chart success in New Zealand. Their first single “Daddy Cool” went to Number 15 and the follow up “Sunny” also made the Top 20. “Ma Baker” almost topped the charts, going all the way to Number 2 in 1977. The following year they went on to achieve a remarkable feat – The double A-side “Rivers of Babylon” with “Brown Girl In The Ring” went toNumber 1 and spent a record breaking 14 weeks at Number 1! – the longest ever for a single until last year when Pharrell Williams “Happy spent” 15 weeks. The disco stomper “Rasputin” (aka Russia’s Greatest Love Machine). BONEY M became massive in the clubs, at parties and all over the airwaves and gave them another Top 5 smash hit. They were bigger than KC and the Sunshine Band, Earth Wind and Fire and Chic! Their NZ chart domination continued with 2 more Top 10 singles “Mary’s Boy Child”, and sing along anthem “Hooray! Hooray! It’s a Holi-Holiday”.
Boney M’s music has never been more popular in recent years, with Lady Gaga sampling “Ma Baker” for her international number 1 hit “Poker Face”, and dance duoDuck Sauce sampling “Gotta Go Home” in their dance floor smash “Barbra Streisand”.
