If there was an option for 10 stars out of 5 option these guys would get that review! We recently had Coachella play at our wedding in the Coromandel. None of my many requests were too much for the band and they made everything to do with organising the music and sound at our wedding totally unstressful and seamless.
Planning a wedding from overseas is never easy so working with someone who was organised and great at communication was amazing. The band were totally incredible making our wedding evening everything we could dream of plus so much more. All our guests are still raving about how awesome ‘the band’ were, they read the crowd perfectly and we had a full dance floor right through to when the wedding finished up. I can’t recommend Coachella enough, we would have them again at an event in a heartbeat!

Matt Stone and Coachella were SLICK. We had a logistically challenging wedding, on an island in the Bay of Islands, and from day dot the whole booking process was flawless. Communication and experience with planning was extremely useful and they took the logistics required in their stride. We got help talking us through our song choices, and even helped change some of the lyrics to Ho Hey to better suit our first dance! The set list was well balanced with some more folk songs that suited our taste but still resonated with the wider crowd. Everyone is still talking about the music and the dancefloor that was pumping all night.
We were lucky in that all our vendors were amazing, yet, Coachella still come out as a fave from us and all our guests. I cannot stress enough how fantastic these guys were. Wish I could attach a video here as I think a 5 second click of the dancefloor would be enough to convince anyone of their talents!
If you’re considering them, BOOK THEM. It will be your best decision. Thanks again to Matt and the lads, you were a very special addition to our wedding and we will never forget you guys for the dancefloor but also the beautiful music that was so integral to our ceremony. All the best!

Absolutely awesome band who made our wedding reception. We had our wedding in an isolated part of waiheke island. Outstanding communication and professionalism throughout the planning phase. Very reasonably priced and everything was taken care of. I have never seen a dance floor so prolific and we were so stoked that the band at our wedding was able to create this atmosphere!! We picked Coachella because of their mix of both new hits and old-time bangers.
The band was able to read the crowd and mix up the songs to suit, so that everyone was keen to return to the floor as soon as the set started up again. Could not recommend Coachella enough. Thanks for for an awesome night!!

Wow Coachella was so incredible and everyone keeps asking us where the band was from because they did such a great job. Nobody wanted them to leave and did so well with every song they played! Pretty sure we had every guest dancing. Really can’t thank them enough for creating such a great atmosphere for the best day ever! We will definitely be recommending them to anyone that needs a band no matter what the event!

I had Coachella sing at my wedding in Queenstown. The Band recorded various versions of the songs I requested and emailed them to me for my approval- I also requested a slight lyric changes in my first dance song which they did effortlessly. Organising the music for my wedding with Coachella was easy and carefree.
On the wedding day: The group started before the ceremony (2:30ish) and played right up until our first dance, at about 7ish. During their short breaks they had their playlist on so that there was never a time without music.
Coachella was so professional and polite I just wish I had the group stay for the entire evening. All of my family and friends raved about the group and I just could not recommend them highly enough!

Coachella performed at our end of year function, and were absolutely fantastic. The band are really talented performers, and played a great range of tunes that had everyone up and dancing the whole night. They were very easy to deal with and flexible around set up and finish times (we had to ask them to extend their set over an hour because everyone was loving it so much!). Anyone that is looking for a great band for their function need look no further, we couldn’t recommend these guys enough.

We recently had Matt Stone and Coachella play at our wedding. The team was so easy to communicate with and took care of the sound for the entire event. We got so many comments about Matt’s solo sets as well as how good Coachella were. They had everyone up and dancing and really set the mood for the wedding.I had the best time dancing to their music. Would recommend +++

I just wanted to the band members for such a fantastic performance at our wedding reception. I had read all of the reviews and listened to your audios on your website, and you as a solo and then the three of you were just spectacular! The number of guests who commented on the band selection was pleasing to hear and a couple from Australia who are getting married next year in Queenstown are interested in talking to you guys.
My father-in-law was against having a band all the way through the planning process…. but even he thanked me for standing my ground with the idea!! He’s now sold on the idea for the next wedding. I’ll absolutely recommend you to anyone that will listen to me. Extremely professional setup you guys have going. Thanks once again and all the best.

Thank you so much to Matt Stone & Coachella. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You and the band are very talented individuals and our family and friends raves about you all. The best moment was when I looked over to you guys and you were all smiles because the whole dance floor was singing wagon wheel for you
