Markovina's wedding couples are spoilt for choice, with nine picture-perfect onsite locations for your wedding ceremony, including the Chestnut Tree, Cherry Blossom Round and Barrel Waterfall. The venue only hosts one wedding per day to ensure you have your choice of any of these beautiful locations. We recommend solo acoustic musicians for this unique vineyard setting, to create a truly magical moment as you walk down the aisle. Below, you'll find three of our best acoustic artists, all of whom can perform without access to power.

DANiel john

Genres: Pop, Acoustic, Top 40

With a vocal quality that is reminiscent of Ed Sheeran, Daniel John creates a relaxed and romantic atmosphere with his soulful, smooth voice accompanying his acoustic guitar. Daniel spent the last few years working as a recording artist in Los Angeles California, and is now available for bookings in Auckland.

We asked Dan to play a live set for our California Vegetarian Food Festival in Los Angeles and we were so impressed with how amazing he was. He added so much to our festival through his incredible, easy-listening, feel-good acoustic music. We have no doubt you will be happy having Dan bring his musical talents to your event.

Maroon 5



Genres: Top 40, Pop, Acoustic

Auckland based singer-songwriter LUNA blends Spanish and English in her music to showcase elements from both sides of her cultural identity. Her music fuses reggaeton, jazz and RnB and it tells stories of youth and love. Raised by artistic parents, Luna was continuously encouraged to explore artistic expression and she began singing and dancing at a very young age. Always drawing inspiration from the Latin American music heard in her family home and the popular music on the radio.

Smokey and effervescent with raw declarations of honesty. Luna’s rasp is reminiscent of a pioneer vocalist, bleeding her heart out in each breath.

Markovina Reception


Markovina's reception room space is an ideal setting for any wedding reception. The space is best suited to duos and trios, so we've chosen a handful of our best two- and three piece bands to ensure your wedding reception is a night to remember.

Neo Trio

Genres: Classic Hits, Top 40, Funk & Soul

The Neo Trio is an Auckland band featuring three of Auckland’s best live musicians. The band performs music by Top 40 chart toppers like Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran and Maroon 5, as well as timeless classics by The Beatles, James Brown and Stevie Wonder. The band’s high quality musicianship combined with 3 part vocal harmonies means they are much more than the sum of their parts, with a full band sound in a smaller package.

Lee played at our wedding in the trio - they were amazing! Absolutely nailed it, had everyone up dancing from start to finish, with all the usual crowed pleasers. He was so so easy to deal with, punctual, and professional. Our guests enjoyed every minute and we had so many compliments - made our day and our d-floor awesome. Thank you!.

Goody 2 Shoes

Genres: Top 40, Acoustic, Rock

Do you want an Auckland acoustic band that will get you dancing, knows how to read the crowd, and has that professional, yet personal touch? Whether you are looking for quality background music for your event or vibrant, energetic songs to entertain your crowd, Goody2Shoes can deliver fun, quality and variety for your event, in a slick and professional manner.

Thank you so very much for playing for our celebration last Saturday evening. Your extensive repertoire appealed to both young and "young at heart” and we loved your humour and the way you embraced the crowd favourite - Haloumi! I have had several requests for your contact details which is testament to how many people thoroughly enjoyed your music. One factor that was brilliant was your relaxed approach. You were totally in control and extremely professional yet laid back - perfect! Loved the fact that you stepped in and accompanied my attempt at singing too! Love. Love, Love.

Bracu Music - The Goods

The Goods

Genres: Classic Hits, Top 40, Pop

The Goods have one simple rule - if it's a good song, they’ll make it a Goods song. Whether it’s from the 60s, 80s or today, if they find a tune they like, they’ll add it to their playlist. From Cake by The Ocean to Call Me Al, Dancing with a Stranger to Dead or Alive, Let’s Dance to Living on a Prayer, The Goods know all the good ones! The guys pack the punch of a full band into a trio, with 2 vocalists and an array of clever technology giving them the ability to play just about anything.

We engaged 'The Goods' for our corporate Christmas function for approx 350 staff and we couldn't be happier. In the lead up and on the day they were professional and very easy to deal with. They created a great vibe with excellent songs that appealed to all ages - a great mix of classic tunes and modern hits, executed with skill, and a very full sound for a three piece band! High quality sound at the right volume, and though it wasn't planned as a dancing event, people couldn't help but dance! Great feedback from staff as 'The Goods' helped to create a memorable event - highly recommended!
