Event Testimonials

Calico recently performed at our Conference Partners’ Dinner at Skyline, Queenstown. Our delegates loved the relaxed atmosphere John & Gemma created for dinner and were more than eager to hit the dance floor when they upped the tempo! With the perfect variety of relaxed music and classic sing-a-longs, all 175 delegates were kept very entertained. John and Gemma were so easy to work with and I would not hesitate in recommending their event band for any function, corporate or otherwise.

Sarah Champness – Associated Advisory Practices, Events Coordinator

After working closely with Calico Entertainment for over 5 years they are now Future Bars ‘go to’ Entertainment providers. Off the stage they are an absolute pleasure to work with, relaxed, knowledgable, and efficient, then once on the stage they are simply superstars. There ability to adapt to the crowd is for me their biggest strength, I have booked them for acoustic chilled Cocktail Evenings, and then bring the house down Wedding Receptions. Super talented, extremely popular, and most certainly recommended.

We have worked with Calico for three years now as our New Years Eve entertainment option. New Years Eve in Queenstown is an extremely important date and our customers expect us to provide a unique, high quality, good fun and enjoyable event band entertainment option – Calico provides us with just that! We have a range of different guests dining with us and Gem & John have been excellent at adapting their performance to suit the evening and are always a crowd pleaser. We get some excellent reviews from our guests about Calico and they really ensure our New Years Eve evening goes off with a success, they provide a truly memorable performance for a such a special evening

Working with Gemma and John and booking Calico for over the last few years has been an absolute pleasure. They are extremely professional to work with and their music has always been superb and at very high calibre. I would recommend Calico for any event.

Calico have been a part of several events I have organised and they are always a pleasure to work with. They are professional, helpful in the organisation and their music is of the highest calibre. The Hilton brand is about quality and excellence, which must be mirrored in all aspects of the service delivered to our clients and guests. I have no hesitation recommending Calico for any event.
