what people say about us

 

 

Hey Pol 

We had such a great night. The band was absolutely fantastic and so many of our guests have commented on how great the band was! You guys had everyone up and dancing! 

Our first dance song was also done perfectly! They did such a great job of it. 

Also I wanted to say a big thanks for answering all my questions in the lead up, and for the use of the mic for our speeches and the celebrant. 

Thanks again

A huge thank you to Freefall for being so fantastic and making our wedding Reception awesome.

You guys were brilliant -  from the acoustic duo during the canapés to the full band after dinner, you were just excellent. I was a bit worried with it being a smaller wedding (40 ppl) that people might not dance, but I think it’s pretty safe to say that everyone (from the two year olds up to 80 year old Nanna) were all up on the dance floor for most the night. 

We had the best night and I cannot recommend you guys enough - you are awesome and since our wedding, every one of our guests has commented on how good ‘the band’ were.

The classic debate of band vs DJ was ended the night of our wedding.  

Freefall’s tunes convinced our guests that a band is the only way to go.  Freefall brought the party and the good vibes that had people dancing the entire night. 

They were also incredibly accommodating! Firstly to our mate who can’t let a performance of ‘Wonderwall’ go by without getting on lead vocal. Secondly by providing mad beats the for the trans Tasman rap battle that went down. Loose nights are the best nights.  Thanks Freefall you nailed it! 

 

10/10 recommend these guys!

'Planning a wedding from overseas is difficult, we knew from the beginning that we wanted to have a band play at our wedding and we are so happy that we chose Freefall to be that band!

Pol and the other band members were easy to communicate with in the lead up to the wedding. They played music during our canapes and also performed an epic set on our wedding night that our guests could not stop raving about!

They really considered our guests and played songs from a range of eras across the evening, they even learnt a song for us which made the night even more special.

We would highly recommend booking Freefall for your event or wedding, they are so talented!'

Thanks so much.

Hi Pol, 

A quick message to say a giant thank you for absolutely making our wedding.

From the duo, at the ceremony & canapés, to the whole band bringing down the house at the reception, you were all simply fantastic. You had young and old up on the dance floor literally all night, as promised!!

 

Thanks for your fantastic communication leading up to the wedding, and your ability to problem solve any request on the day. All our guests having been singing your praises, and we will tell anyone who listens how great you guys were!! Can't wait to see you guys play again soon.

Reid & Kirsty

 

 

Hi Pol!!

Just a wee message to say THANK YOU for being our entertainment.

Our guests had a BALL, dancing to your music all night long. They were impressed at how well you played each song in your set, and kept going all night long. 
When planning our wedding we wanted to nail, 2 key things, food and music! and thank you as you really helped us do that.
The next day at our function we had guests coming up to us all day asking 'Who was the band' We proudly could say Freefall and check them out at Ballarat Trading Co too.
My Gran thought you were all the bees knees, and I couldn't resist sending you some photos of my 82 year old grandmother have a good boogie, so thank you!

We would happily recommend you to other future brides, grooms and party planners. Thank you Freefall, and hope to see you at Ballarat again soon.

Warmest regards,

Rachel & Hamish Campbell

Pol & Dom, You guys are amazing!!

Thank you so so much for making our wedding so awesome! Everyone keeps asking me where I found you guys and how amazing you guys were, from the beginning to the end! People didn’t want you to stop and mentioned how much they loved your playlist, it really was incredible we really had the best day!

You guys are super talented. Thank you so much for creating an awesome vibe, everyone loved every minute of it! And for playing Florence for our first dance.

I believe people always remember the music, food and atmosphere at weddings and I’m so stoked that ours will be one to remember! 

We will definitely be up again to watch your gigs in Queenstown!!

Thanks again to both of you,

All the best,

Lauren and Andrew

 

 

Hi Pol,

Please pass onto the band a HUGE thank you from both Hans and I!

You guys ROCKED!!!

Absolutely brilliant - you made our wedding.

Cheers

Hi Pol. 

Thank you so much to you and the guys at Freefall. You guys were great. We loved having you all as part of our day. It was a shame we couldn’t party on later into the night. 

You were so entertaining, with a great selection and tunes and kept us all dancing. Our guests were so impressed with you guys and we got heaps of compliments regarding you.  Thank you for being the perfect sounds for our reception. 

Camyce + Troy

 

 

You guys were absolutely fantastic,  we really couldn't have ask for anything better! One thing we really wanted for our wedding was for everyone to get up on the dance floor and you guys definitely made that happen, so thank you. We will be recommending you to anyone who is looking for a band and we would jump at the chance to have you perform for us again. 

Thanks again, 

Lucy & Adam 

 

 

Hi Pol,

Just a quick email to say a massive thank you to you and your band for being so awesome.

We very much enjoyed all the songs you guys played, and had amazing feedback from the quests, shame it couldn’t go on for longer! 

We are super stokes you sang our first dance song, it made it very special to us. Thank you

Keep up the good work! Will drop you a message when we’re back in Queenstown next! 

Cheuk + Dwayne

 

 

Thanks so much for an amazing night!

We have had so many people commenting on how amazing the band was, a band was really important to me as it can make or break the night and you guys defiantly made it!

We cannot thank you enough and would definitely recommend you guys for anyone having a wedding down that way.

 Thanks again :) 

Lara + James 

 

 

 

It was so hot on our wedding day, all the guest were feeling the heat and I think you made the day more enjoyable for all of our guests.  I had so many people ask what the name of your band was and how good you're performance was.  Robbie and I would like to thank you again you really made our day special even learning a new song for the ceremony.

Emma + Robbie

 

 

 

Dear Freefall,

While we are settling back into Paris life (which at the moment is -13 apparent temperature and snow!!), we just wanted say a massive thank you.

You were absolutely amazing! We don't think we have ever seen a dance floor fill so quickly and remain full all night. We can't thank you enough for the amazing atmosphere you created, everyone loved it and so did we. You certainly know how to read the crowd! Thank you also for the beautiful rendition of Odell's Grow Old with me - our first dance - it was masterful!

We hope you enjoyed the evening as well!

With best wishes,

Sabine & Edward


(Julie Perry)


What magic you created for Sabine and Edward’s wedding.

Your music was a perfect complement to the glorious setting of the canapés site and created the atmosphere for a relaxed and convivial celebration. Your superb musicianship was noted by many of the guests.

As for the dance floor.... it rocked! From the moment you started to the very last song, without a break! the music was incredible.

A band can make or break a wedding and you made this one. We have received such lovely comments about the dancing and energy created.

I can’t thank you enough!

I loved the night.

Best wishes,

 

 

 

Hi guys,

Many thanks for playing at our wedding in Wanaka on Friday 5th January. We had an absolutely brilliant night and didn't leave the dance floor!! 

We will be sure to recommend you to friends and family who get married in Wanaka in the future!.

Again, big thanks!! We loved it!!!!

Kind regards,

Daniella Walters and Sam Myhrman xx

 

 

We booked Dom and Pol (the Freefall Acoustic Duo) for our wedding day on the 29th of December 2017.  They came recommended by our Events Manager at The Winehouse and we can now see why!  They joined us for an hour for drinks in the garden in the afternoon and then came back later in the evening for another three hour set after dinner.  We loved how they tailored their song lists to the different times of day and settings and made a real effort to engage with our guests and play requests.  They learnt our first dance song, and even surprised us by learning a second song we had requested and played it later in the evening which meant a lot to us.  We had so many comments from our guests on the night and since then saying how great they were.  They had us all up and dancing as everyone knew every song!  They were simply fantastic and we can't recommend and thank them enough.  They were lovely, genuine guys who clearly love what they do and this comes across in their performance and their music.  We loved having them as part of our special day!  

Thanks again

Becky and Joseph

 

 

Hi Pol

Choosing Freefall was one of the best decisions we made. 

Thanks for doing such an amazing job. You guys were awesome! Everyone loved the mix of music you played- as could be seen by the number of people dancing. Many of our guests commented about how great you were and asked how we found you.

(As an Fyi- your facebook videos sold us).

Word of mouth in Queenstown is huge (as I'm sure you already know) and there were quite a few locals there. 

Wish you lots of luck in future.

Thanks again

Lisa & Rich :-)

 

 

It was a perfect wedding for us and we really appreciate that you went out of the way to specially learn and play "You took my heart away" for our first dance. It was a very special moment for us and your rendition of the piece made that even better. Our guests loved and enjoyed your repertoire for the evening and we loved how your duo's vocals complement the mood for the night. You made our evening exceptionally special for us and we both can't thank you enough.

Regards,

Michelle & Sharon.  

 

 

"My fiance and I went to watch Freefall play in Queenstown and booked them for our wedding right after that. We're so glad we did! Right from the first song until the last song the dance floor was packed and all our guests had such a great time.

Freefall played a great mix of songs all night and were very professional but fun at the same time, and the music sounded awesome. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a band for a wedding or any sort of function. Thanks so much guys for making our wedding so much fun!

Cheers,

Katie and Hunter. 

 

 

Hi Pol, Dominic, Thom, and Jason!

Travis and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding in October at NZ High Country! Honestly I can't express how grateful I am as everything was just perfect and I can vouch that I have never seen all my family dancing away the whole night from the beginning to the end! I have had multiple rave reviews about how amazing you guys are and I will send them to your facebook page so they can tell the world just how amazing you guys really are! I've even had family wanting your business cards so they can try persuade you to fly over the pond and come play here in Australia. Many thanks again

Travis + Megumi 

 

 

Hi Pol,

Mick and I just wanted to say thanks again for playing at our wedding.

You guys were absolutely fantastic, and everyone has commented on how great they thought you were.

We can't thank you guys enough for creating an awesome, fun atmosphere.

Jess + Mick 

 

 

Hi Pol, 

I would like to say a massive thank you for playing at our wedding. You guys were awesome! Lots of positive feedback from the guests. The band can definitely make or break the awesomeness of the night. You were exactly what I was hoping for. Lots of sing-alongs, everyone was jumping around having the best time. Thanks again.

A massive THANK YOU to Pol and Dom from Freefall for performing at the AMSNZ & ASAM 2017 Conference Dinner at Skyline Queenstown on Saturday 2 September 2017. 

The feedback received from delegates and the client the next morning was that the guys were fantastic and really suited the event! It was so lovely to see everyone dancing the night away in the final set. 

We would highly recommend the music stylings of Freefall for any corporate event!

Hi Pol  

It was wonderful having Freefall perform at our special occasion.  The music choice for the age group was spot on and their harmonizing superb.  I have never seen so many people up dancing and eager not to stop – a true testament to the quality of the musicians Pol and Dom. Thank you so much for playing – it was a fantastic evening made so successful in a large part because of the music. 

Lynley + Fraser 

  

 

Hi Pol and Dom, 

I would just like to say a big thank you to you both. Having decided last minute that a band was a must I ran a quick search on google within the first 15 seconds I knew you were the band for us. We were both astounded at the sound quality and soulfulness and beautiful meshing of the acoustics.You guys were my absolute favorite part of our wedding and responsible for my teariness (bastards) Once again thank you so much, we would beg, borrow or steal you for any event we have in the future kindest regards. 

Ricky + Kate  

 

 

Pol and the guys are just amazing - fantastic musicians and all so friendly and make everything run so smoothly for you. 

The acoustic duo was a beautiful addition to our canapés before dinner and a created a really special atmosphere for us and our guests. 

The dance floor was absolutely epic and everyone danced their hearts out to 3 hours of brilliant songs - such a highlight of our wedding! If you want a memorable party and a bunch of lovely guys to make your day extra special, definitely choose Freefall!   

Tom + Louise 

 

 

Thank you guys so much for helping to make our day unforgettable. You were so easy to deal with leading up to the wedding and really accommodating of the special requests and song choices we had (as well as the demands for an encore of Wagon Wheel). 

You all are incredibly talented and we are so glad we had you be part of our day. Having such a good acoustic duo & live band really added to the atmosphere we were wanting to achieve. We had so many people come up to us on the day commenting on how fantastic you guys were, and even now our guests are still asking us for your details.  

Thanks again for everything - next time we are down your way we will be sure to hunt Freefall out. 

After the wedding you definitely have a few more more fans to say the least! 

Will & Jess  

 

 

I booked Freefall Duo from Adelaide, Australia for the entertainment for a Cocktail Party corporate event in Queenstown, New Zealand. 
Having never heard them or met them I was nervous with what we were going to get. 
I had no need to be though, when I met them they were charming and very accommodating, they sounded amazing and kick started our event perfectly, with a very disappointed dance floor when we had to try and close the night. 
We highly recommend them! 

Rebecca Rosa (Haircare Australia)  

 

 

Hey Pol 
hank you guys for sucha great time!  
The dance floor was packed all night, you did such a great job. So many great songs  
What a shame the speeches went for so long and we could have enjoyed you for a little longer! 
I would totally recommend you to anyone wanting a band for their wedding day.  
Thanks again, 
Amy and Brendan x - April 2017 

 

 

Thanks so much-- a great night. 
You guys did amazing and plenty of comments from the guests on how wonderful you guys were.  
Thanks again, 

Debs  

 

 

Thanks guys for a great job. 
 I was very happy from go to whoa and appreciated the professionalism in your dealings. 
Kevin Cahill  

 

 

Hey Pol 
Thanks so much for the fantastic show you guys put on! 
You had the dance floor going all night long and even my 86 year old gran dancing. 
When we asked you guys to play at our wedding we hadn't heard you before so we really didn't know what to expect but once you started we were thrilled to have you as our wedding band.  
You guys topped off an awesome day with great song choices, energy and sound. 
Thanks also for being so easy to deal with and going out of your way to make our day hassle free. 

Lauren + Isaac  

 

 

We loved having you there! I'm so glad we booked you. 
Our guests said that you added so much to our day, played songs everyone could get into and created the perfect atmosphere for our day after function. 
We will definitely be in touch if we need some local musicians again.  
Thanks so much, 

Hayley + Pat  

 

 

The best decision we made was booking Freefall for our wedding ceremony and party.  
They were great to deal with and nothing was a problem. 
The music was fantastic, it was perfectly suited to our guests and the energy it created was magic! 
I would book them again without hesitation. 

Beth + Shaun - February 2017 

 


 A very professional band that provides a complete range of musical styles from acoustic background to full on dance/rock music. Accomplished variations of recognizable covers kept everyone dancing to the end and beyond after several encores. Significantly the band seemed to enjoy playing as much as we enjoyed listening 
Paul (Beths Dad) 

 

 

Just love you guys!!!! 
Thank you for making our wedding so spectacular! Wish we could do it all over again!!! 
Big love to you all, and pleased you enjoyed it as much as we did!! ❤️❤️❤️ 

Andy + Helena 

 

 

Thank you so so much for your amazing work at the wedding!  
You guys were absolutely phenomenal!!! 
Music can make or break a wedding and you guys made it! 
We have had nothing but endless compliments on you guys, your voices, energy, song choices, everything! 
You far exceeded our wildest expectations and we want to say thank you! 

George and Mario  

 

 

Thanks so much for being awesome, we loved having you guys play at our wedding. 
Everyone had a great time dancing - not least my Dad, who is possibly the worst dancer of all time, but forgot about that because the music was so good! We've had lots of comments about how great the band was and would definitely highly recommend you to anyone who asks. 
Thanks so much also for learning our first dance song, it was great :) 

Jo and Ben  

 

 

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you so much for making our day so awesome!! 
We got so many compliments about the music! Both ceremony and canapés and on the dance floor! 
I honestly don't think we could have dreamed of anything better! 
It's not easy to pick a band from the other side of the world but I think we (well you!) nailed it! 
I hope the crowd wasn't too rowdy! Thanks again.  

Katy + Paul  

 

 

Thanks again!!  
We can't wait to come back to Queenstown & see you play again!  
Everyone has not stopped raving about how fantastic you were and we honestly could not have imagined just how special you would make the day for us. 
From our requests which you learnt and played better than the originals, to keeping everyone on the dance floor all night long and of course a special mention for allowing myself and my aunty steal the mic on the odd occasion!! 
Finally back home and wanted to touch base to say to say a huge THANK YOU for making our wedding the most incredible, memorable and fun day/evening ever!  

Mark & Lauren  

 

 

Hey Guys, 

Words can't thank you enough for the part you played in my wedding. Right from the moment I started email/txt communication with you, you were friendly, approachable and made me feel like my day was incredibly important. As we were not from Queenstown, we were reliant on the internet in helping us find the right band. Coming across the list of songs on your website and meeting you for a quick chat after an acoustic duo performance at a pub, I knew you guys would be a great addition to my big day.  
On the day, your band and music were everything and more that I wanted it to be. Unfortunately due to my health on the day I was not able to enjoy each song as much as I would have liked to, but I know that many of our guests commented on how great the song choices and you all were. 
Thank you for answering all my questions via email or txt, whenever I had them. Your communication skills and musical abilities are one to beat. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone.  

Merryn + Nick Lane  

 

 

To Pol & band! 

Thank you so much for playing at Stoneridge Estate for our wedding! 
We had the best night and you and the band played a huge part in that! At one stage out of 95 guests there was nobody sitting down! It was a real party with so much positive energy and vibes! 
We received a lot of feedback about your band from our guests.. the most common one being you guys were the best band they had ever seen at a wedding!! 
We would highly recommend Freefall so if you guys ever come to Melbourne let us know, 
we'd be sure to spread the word! 
Many thanks, 

Gian & Michelle  

 

 

Peter and I would just like to say a big thank you once again for the amazing job you guys did at our Wedding. We had an awesome time celebrating, as did everyone and we have all said that you two created the atmosphere aboard the Pacific Jemm.  
You played endlessly, sang great songs and when the rough seas (lake) challenged us – you challenged it back and continued till the end – very impressive!  
I definitely made the right choice in choosing you to entertain us for the evening, great stuff. 
 Hope you guys had a good time even though you were working. 
 Take care and enjoy that wonderful lifestyle you have. 
 Cheers 
  
 Tania and Peter  

 

 

Thanks so much for performing at our wedding. Your set had the dance floor packed from the start to the finish, with young and old getting down and throwing some serious moves! A lot of guests remarked on the night and afterwards how much fun they had and how great the band was - I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you for any function where there’s an accessible, yet non-cheesy band required to rock the place. Nice work!

'Michael and I highly recommend Freefall as the band for getting the dance floor pumping for any special occasion. They played at our wedding  at Lookout Lodge in Wanaka and we could not have been more pleased with the music and entertainment they provided. As soon as the first song started, all of our guests hit the dance floor and did not stop partying until the small hours of the night. The song selection was fantastic and was enjoyed by all ages ranging from four to 94! Our guests have continued to rave about the band for days! Thanks Freefall for making our wedding day one to remember!' 

Hannah and Michael 

 

 

Ryan and I could not have asked for a better band to play at our wedding at Lake Wanaka in December 2015.  We had Dom play acoustic for the ceremony and the remainder of the band join for the bridal party entrances and the reception!  They were amazing!!  Organizing a wedding from overseas is not an easy task but when you are dealing with Pol and Dom they certainly make it stress-free!  Our guests have not stopped talking about the night and the endless dancing!  They certainly know how to get everyone on the dance floor. 

RYAN & EMMA MOFFET 

 

 

Hi!!!!!!  
Well well well.... Nothing but amazzzzzzzing reviews of you guys! Best cover duo ppl have ever heard!!!!! Some wished you kept playing all night! Can't believe I didn't Even get to catch a snippet! But thank you for you awesome music and entertainment. All the best!  

Rene and Brett!  

 

 

“Freefall were the perfect choice for our awards night. No trouble to organise, super helpful and lots of fun. The set list have something for everyone and definitely got people up dancing. I would highly recommend Dom and guys for any function.” 

 Amy Wilson-White (Arrowtown Rugby Club) 

 

 

Hi Pol 
Can't thank you enough, you guys were brilliant - both in terms of the music and in getting things organised, very professional and slick.  Just about every single guest commented how good the band was.  One guest is an events manager in Queenstown and reckoned you guys were the best band she's heard - has taken your details for future events!  Great to meet you all. 
Best of luck, and thanks again! 

Suzi and Greg Bell 

 

 

"You guys rock – literally! 

Thank you so much for being so professional, accommodating and easy to deal with. Nothing was an issue and the tunes on the night definitely got the boat rocking and the party going! Can’t wait to have you on board again soon”

Hi Guys 

Andy and I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for yesterday. You played beautifully and well passed the amount of time we were expecting to have you for but we are soooooo grateful as it really made the atmosphere that we wanted and many people commented on how great you were. 
I'm sorry if you melted a bit in the ceremony!!! 
Thanks again and all the best. 

Heather & Andy 

 

 

Hi Pol. 
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a huge thank you for your performance at our event last week. You were absolutely brilliant and the feedback from everyone has been fantastic. 
Wishing you all the best for you future endeavors. 
Regards Hannah 

Thanks so much Dom & Pol for your amazing music on Thursday at our wedding. 
You made the day something special for both of us and we've had so many people comment on how good the music was, Cheers!

AJ Hacketts Birthday Party 

Freefall were a fantastic choice for our 2014 birthday party. We wanted something that would get our crew on the dance floor and they worked perfectly. They were really accommodating with our requests and even dressed for the occasion! They were a total breeze with set up and pack up and it was wonderful to just let them get on with it while we sat back and relaxed. The song choice was brilliant and our crew loved them! They even let one of our crew get up and sing which was very entertaining. We’ll be using them again in 2015. Look forward to using you guys again!

Thank you so much you made our wedding!! 

All people have talked about is the band!! Matt's sister rang to get your contacts for two of her friends! I always new you were awesome but some people were giving me sh#t for getting a rock band.....it's nice they had to eat their words while rocking it up on the dance floor!! Your fan forever

Just to say that you guys were amazing, perfect for our little w

Hi Guys 
Thank you so much for your amazing performance at our wedding. You made the evening extra special and so many of our friends have commented on what a great band you were. The mother in law was suspicious about getting a rock band to play but you totally won her over. We will be recommending you to everyone! Kind Regards
