Kate Pierson of the B-52's sits in with the 8G Band on Late Night with Seth Meyers on March 5, 2015.

B-52s singer and keyboardist Kate Pierson has married her long-time partner Monica Coleman.

The happy couple celebrated their nuptials in Hawaii where all the members of the quirky rock band were among the guests. Sia and her husband Erik Anders Lang were witnesses at the wedding, while B-52s frontman and founding member Fred Schneider reportedly delivered the best man speech on the day.

Pierson shared the good news with a string of posts on her Facebook page.

Sia, who co-wrote Pierson’s debut solo album release, Guitars And Microphones, performed one of its songs for the guests, "Crush Me With Your Love," according to Perez Hilton’s blog.
