We were delighted to have the Calico as our Wedding Band. We told them what we were after and got exactly what we wanted… and more. Our special night was one big party and our 118 guests, most who had flown in from international destinations, left the wedding wanting more. Calico played our Bridal Dance song and even performed for our friend Tara to sing to us too. Calico went out of their way to cater for what we wanted and lived up to our expectations. We would recommend these guys for any wedding. They are the complete package.

thank you once again for the massive contribution you guys made towards making our wedding the most special day we have ever experienced. I think nearly all of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed your music and we certainly saw some of our ‘non-dancer’ friends hit the dance floor for the first time in recent history an impressive feat on your part. I thoroughly enjoyed the song you learned for us and that’s one of the memories I’ll have for many years to come.

Gemma and Jon were amazing for our wedding and the guests were all raving about the music. Gemma and Jon met up with us before our big day and were so professional and accommodating to all our requirements. Nothing was too much for them and leaving that meeting we had no worries as we knew they had it all in hand. They happily learnt songs for us, changed the music and made us feel so special on our big day. Walking down the aisle to someone personally singing a favourite song was amazing and made the whole event so special. Surprising the guests with songs also made the day even more memorable. Calico played to the guests the whole time we were away having our pictures keeping them entertained and went above and beyond what we initially had asked them to do. We can’t thank them enough, they have the most amazing, beautiful voices and I would highly recommend them to anyone for a special event especially a wedding.

We just want to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding. You guys really made the evening so special and catered to our very eclectic group of guests. You got everyone up dancing and the only complaints we had were that they couldn’t stay and keep partying after midnight. A very special thanks from The Chills for letting us use your gear for a couple of songs as too!! Garrick and I will definitely be recommending you guys to our friends and family as we just loved the set list and beautiful harmonies – you rock

When me and my husband thought about the music for our wedding Calico was our first and only choice. John and Gemma have a wide ranging back catalogue of various genres which was well suited for our wedding. For our first dance they spent 2 weeks coming up with a stylish composition of Etta James’ At Last. Their professionalism and commitment to make our day that extra bit special shone through and I would happily recommend them to all who want the best music duo in Queenstown for your special day.

Omg! Words can not express how fab you guys were last night. Everyone raved about you and the great vibe of the night was definitely attributed to you guys.

A huge big thank you for totally rocking at our wedding on the 18th of July! You guys were amazing, brilliant at reading the crowd and your energy and talent was awesome. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding band! So many people complimented you at our next day event, you guys should be very proud you are truly awesome. Thank you so much for learning our first dance song too..it was amazing! Hope you both take care and when we are in Qtown next we will totally look up where you will be playing at! Wrap up warm and most likely see you in summer somewhere!
Love and thanks again.

Our wedding wasn’t the first time we used Calico but it was by far my favorite. They were so happy to help with anything they could do for us down to being prepared to learn new music for our big day. They kept the party going and people on the dance floor all night. Everyone was so impressed and still talk about them.
