Calico are a dynamic band with members from an assortment of musical backgrounds, resulting in a high energy, exciting and crowd pleasing band that caters to all audiences! They are professional musicians doing what they love, pure and simple, always delivering a top quality performance in its purest form! Their expansive and varied catalogue of songs allows them to read a crowd and play exactly what you need for an unforgettable night!

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.
