When Coda is in the house, you bring your dancing shoes. Not only is Temple the most down-to-earth bandleader in the galaxy, but she'll bring your favorite rock mix to life, right in front of your very eyes. If you're tired of the dog & pony show and just want an authentic jam band that will astound your guests with their enviable talent, this is it. Confident. Urban. Real. When Coda rocks your wedding, people notice, and people remember.
Temple. Unflappable. Unstoppable. Temple Schultz is truly one of Chicago's most coveted performers. Her energy is positively contagious! Known for her uniquely soulful singing style, influences in rock, pop, folk, motown, and R&B have given her voice the range and depth that make Coda the right choice for Chicago's hippest celebrations. If you're looking for a remarkable bandleader who will listen to you and go the extra mile to create the party of your dreams, look no further. In every sense of the word, Temple rocks!
Vijay. With accolades for his prodigious musical talents since he was a child, Vijay Tellis-Nayak is sought after as one of the top musicians in Chicago as a keyboardist, producer, composer, arranger, and engineer. An extremely versatile musician, he has performed with top artists in genres ranging from jazz to pop to musical theater. Some of these include Jennifer Hudson, Chuck Berry, Randy Brecker, The Supremes, Joe Piscopo, and Umphrey's McGee.
Scott. The most amazing guitarist/vocalist you'll ever hear. From Hendrix to Zeppelin to The Beatles and The Clash, Scott truly morphs to cover it all. He's good enough to perform with ZZ Top and Los Lobos...and he has. Very rarely will you find a vocalist like this who can sing as part of a choir one minute, and then rock out in a hip club setting at the snap of a finger. Scott’s multifaceted voice and guitar virtuosity make him an integral part of the soul of Coda.

"They were amazing. Their talent honestly made the wedding reception the best ever! Everyone was up dancing most of the evening. It was hard to sit down and I suffered a little later as my feet were killing me! But, what a memory. The music from Temple and her band truly made the evening."
"We couldn't have been happier. Temple was a pleasure to work with...she listened to our needs and wants and translated that into the music that was played during our reception. There wasn't a single moment during the reception that the dance floor wasn't packed!"
"The dance floor was packed all night. They read the crowd really well and did a great job transitioning between songs to please guests of all ages. I never left the dance floor because every time I was ready for a break, they started another great number and I HAD to dance!"
"You would not believe how many guests raved about the music and how much they enjoyed dancing. Your voices were great and our first dance was perfect, just as we had imagined it. We knew we wanted good music and you guys blew us away!"
"You guys rocked it out! I have two sets of friends getting married who were at the wedding and they have both said they are hiring you as their band."
"Temple and her band Coda played at my "big" birthday party at Catalyst Ranch. Can't say enough about how awesome they were. My guests danced all night. They can play anything. Very high energy and we all had a blast!"
"We had more compliments on our band than any other part of the wedding. Even when they had to go on break, people were still up and dancing because they provided such fun break music. Really, just a great group of people to work with. They really made the wedding!"
"Coda is a truly great find. As a professional singer, the music at my wedding had to be top notch, and after looking at about 50 Chicago wedding bands, these guys won, hands down. My dance floor was packed all night long, and the vocals were incredible. Thank you Temple!"
