“Matt Stone and Coachella+ were SLICK. We had a logistically challenging wedding, on an island in the Bay of Islands, and from day dot Matt was extremely easy to deal with. His communication and experience with planning was extremely useful and they took the logistics required in their stride. Matt helped talk 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!”
NOELLE & HAYDEN DUFFY | BAY OF ISLANDS WEDDING | 23 NOVEMBER 2018
"I just wanted to thank you and your 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."
SAM & LISA SUMMERVILLE | AUCKLAND WEDDING | 04 AUGUST 2018
"Matt, your solo music for our wedding service and canapé was incredible. You and your band Coachella were a massive hit with our guests at our wedding reception. Communicating with you, arranging our choice of songs for the wedding and you gauging our guests type of music for the reception was just phenomenal. Your performance was flawless and you made our special day very unique. Our guests did not want your band to stop! They would have danced to your music past the pumpkin hour if they had had the chance. Thank you for making our day extra special."
MURRAY & GILL | AUCKLAND WEDDING | 21 APRIL 2018
"Thank you so much Matt. 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 signing wagon wheel for you :-)"
ASHLEIGH & KYLE | LAKE TARAWERA WEDDING | 16 MARCH 2018
"Hiring Coachella was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Matt and the guys were simply exceptional. In the lead up to the event they were so communicative and flexible for what was an unpredictable marquee wedding in a location that had never hosted one before. Their attitude was simply spectacular.
Most importantly though their performance was SPECTACULAR - truely talented and a huge sound that filled the dance floor. They were the perfect mix of party music with absolute quality and we have had so many compliments on them. My stepdad (notoriously difficult to please) even said at one point during an eagles song he thought it sounded like the real thing. Our guests were having a ball and Coachella dealt with them amazingly, from their banter with the incessant wagon wheel requests to a wonky dance floor / stage on a hill to their huge patience when my cousin kept grabbing the mic (sorry guys..!!)
We absolutely adored Coachella and would recommend them 110% to anyone! Thank you so much for bringing the party!"
ALEX & TOMMO | WAIHEKE WEDDING | 26 JANUARY 2018
"We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the other night! You guys are awesome and everyone has been commenting on how good the music was. We really do appreciate the effort and sorry your shirts got taken off!!!"
JENNI & MARIO | PUHOI WEDDING | 12 JANUARY 2018
"Thanks so much for last night! Everyone has been raving about you guys, you’re awesome!"
JASMINE & ROB | WAITAKERE WEDDING | 9 DECEMBER 2017
"Thank you so much for Saturday, everyone had such an awesome time and they are all raving about you guys. Unforgettable!!!!"
ALEX & JAMES | MATAKANA WEDDING | 2 DECEMBER 2017
"I had so many people ask "how did you find them?" and stating how amazing you all were. Your attitudes, talent and choice of music made our night so special. I certainly had trouble skiing the next day after the non-stop dancing! Thank you so much and I truly hope we have the opportunity to see you guys perform again some day! If you are ever over in Australia, let us know and we will keep our eye out for you next time we are in Queenstown."
CARMEL & PAUL | QUEENSTOWN 50th BIRTHDAY | 12 AUGUST 2017
"Matt and I would like to thank you and the boys so very much for being part of our festival. We had so much fun. Your vibe was the best way to set the scene for what was an epic weekend. You have been such a pleasure to interact with, and made everything so easy. Thank you for that. We can't wait to enjoy your sound again in a few weeks at Grace and Chae's wedding. Hopefully we might even get to share a drink and thank you in person. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
JENNA & MATT | COATESVILLE WEDDING | 10 MARCH 2017
"Coachella is the band you want to play at your wedding! Our wedding is still talked about, 4 years on, because everyone was up dancing all night and having the best time. Coachella read the crowd and adjust song choice accordingly, resulting in an evening of a very full dance floor! The vocals (Including an acoustic set) were amazing and the full band in the evening was faultless. Would recommend to anyone and everyone looking for a reception that no one will ever forget!"
GEOFF & HAYLEY | QUEENSTOWN WEDDING | 18 MARCH 2012
“We just wanted to say another HUGE thank you for your incredible music at our wedding, it was perfect and we couldn't have asked for more. So so so many people commented on how amazing you were and we totally agree! It was a pleasure to have you with us and making our day all we wanted, thankyou thankyou thankyou!”
MARIE & ROB | QUEENSTOWN WEDDING | 19 APRIL 2016
“The fact that the majority of our guests didn’t stop dancing from when Matt and Mike started until the last song played shows how absolutely amazing they were. We couldn’t have picked a better team and what incredible talent they both have. Matt also learned and sung our aisle song at the ceremony and it was incredible. You won’t find a better band to have at your event”
ALEX & ANDY | MATAKANA WEDDING | 19 MARCH 2016
"We were lucky enough to have Coachella play at our wedding in Devonport. Between the acoustic set in the afternoon and the party in the evening, the guys were incredible. Matt was great to deal with, and made the whole process a breeze. The guys played a great few sets and we have have had nothing but good reviews from the night."
NICK & KATIE | DEVONPORT WEDDING | 12 MARCH 2016
"Thank you so much for everything you guys were amazing - everything we wanted and more. Everybody had such a great time on the dance floor!!! I heard a few people got your card too so hopefully it won't be long until we see you guys again."
ROCHELLE & JAMES | LAKE TAUPO WEDDING | 13 FEBRUARY 2016
"Huge thanks for playing at our wedding - we didn't have a big wedding as you saw so we weren't sure whether to have a band and it was a bit last minute in finding you but I'm so glad we did!! You guys were awesome and exactly what we were after - not cheesy like bands that target weddings. If we ever need a band for anything else, I'll definitely come to you guys first."
DEBRA & STU | MYSTERY CREEK WEDDING | 4 FEBRUARY 2016
"Matt, thank you so much for playing at our wedding! We are sorry we did not get a moment to come and thank you in person. We had many people tell us the following day how much they enjoyed listening to you play. Thank you again!"
HANNAH & BROOKE | MURIWAI WEDDING | 19 DECEMBER 2015
"I have contracted Matt Stone and his band on a number of occasions over the years. I have been very impressed with Matt's total professionalism and musical talent. Whether it be an outdoor sporting event of ours, an awards function or even my own wedding. I have been thoroughly impressed. I couldn't recommend them more highly and continue to use his services today."
SCOTT RICE | QUANTUM EVENTS, BEACH SERIES & OCEAN SWIM SERIES
"We would just like to say a huge thank you for Saturday. It was a pleasure having you play at our wedding :) You were wonderful. So many of our friends and family complimented on the music. We are so happy you were able to come down :) Thank you very much."
ALICE & JACKSON | WHAKATANE WEDDING | 22 NOVEMBER 2014
"Matt played for the OSS Client Christmas party this year. I called him up with late notice and he was so accommodating!
It was so easy to organise and he brought all his own equipment. His voice is amazing and his song list is extensive. He had such a great mix of songs and our guests loved it! Thanks again Matt for helping make our party a success!"
RENEE CROSBY | OPEN SYSTEMS SPECIALISTS
"If you are looking for professional musicians with a superb playlist, undeniable talent and the ability to change the musical mix to create the right mood at your event then you can’t go past Matt Stone and his fellow musicians. Matt organised an acoustic duo to play at my 40th and 50th birthday parties. On both occasions the music was the highlight of the evening with plenty of very positive comments from my guests. They started with background music and as the evening progressed the tempo of music progressed until everyone young and old was on the dance floor. With great instrumentation and vocals, tight harmonies and a playlist covering old classics through to contemporary pop and rock Matt will deliver the perfect entertainment for your event. I have no hesitation in recommending Matt and look forward to booking him again for future events."
