Her willingness to incorporate our personal song choices into her repertoire was a beautiful and meaningful touch. Her attentiveness and responsiveness in the months leading up to the wedding were truly exceptional. On the big day, she surpassed ALL expectations!!

I cannot speak highly enough about Jay and the team at On The Beat Fx. Leading up to the wedding, Jay was extremely receptive to everything my wife and I wanted, and made awesome suggestions and decisions on things we weren't sure on. Jay is an incredibly personable and super nice guy. He made us feel supremely comfortable going into the week of the wedding. What Jay and his team did the day of the wedding was nothing short of incredible. I've never been to a wedding where guests were willingly leaving their food on the table to instead go dance, but it happened at mine. Everyone was tapping their feet throughout dinner and crowded the dance floor as soon as they were finished. Songs flowed flawlessly from one into the other and there were absolutely zero breaks in the action. The one and only regret I have is that we weren't able to extend our time at the venue to keep the party going with Jay and his team at the helm. We could not be happier with our choice to have Jay and his team DJ our wedding and I will be recommending him to everyone for all occasions.

The Hook Club was a perfect fit for our wedding! We were looking for a wedding band that would provide energy and excitement, and The Hook Club did just that. They played songs that got everyone up, dancing and singing along. They were also very flexible with the ceremony music—they let us request certain songs and even played a couple of songs they weren't planning on playing at all. We loved how they were able to adjust their set list based on the crowd's reactions. The Hook Club kept everyone happy throughout the night. We received multiple comments about how great they were—people said they felt like they could really connect with each other because of how much fun everyone was having listening to them play. I'm so glad we decided to have them perform at our wedding at the TWA.

We had the pleasure of working with Marcus for our wedding recently and could not recommend him more as someone who understands how to use music to set the tone and underscore a memorable event like a wedding. Marcus did our cocktail hour, dinner, and reception music - being super open to our requests and suggestions, while helping refine the song selection to make sure each playlist fit the mood. We also appreciated that he was able to adapt on the spot and change the vibe based on the tone in the room. During the planning process, we felt very heard and Marcus was able to answer any question we had. From explaining his process, to his equipment setup, to working with other vendors, he was a true professional and we had no doubt we would be in good hands. Best of all, our guests had a blast dancing and we had many people talk about how great the music was.

New York, NY

The Brooklyn Beats is the inaugural event/wedding band founded by music industry veteran, Jon Shiffman. Jon is best known for his live work as a drummer for Grammy winner Jack Antonoff in the bands Steel Train and Bleachers. He has toured all over the world and his drumming can be heard on various National TV Commercials, and is featured in the 2024 release of Paramount Pictures’ Mean Girls movie. Since even before leaving the touring life in 2015, Jon has been a fixture in the New York private event/wedding band scene and has been a drummer, band leader, talent booker and event producer for the biggest agencies and bands in the area.

Full disclosure, my wife and I have known Jon for a long time. He is one of the most honest, transparent, trustworthy and hard-working, and talented people I’ve ever met. Separate of that, I just simply wouldn’t trust anyone else when it comes to music for events and weddings. When Dara and I got married, Jon was producing weddings and bandleading for one of the bigger wedding band agencies in New York. Because of our trust in him and because we wanted him to be the bandleader, we hired that company for our wedding and it was the best decision we could’ve made. The party was absolutely epic!!! Our guests kept coming up to us and commenting on how the band was incredible. It was obvious that Jon was one of the main reasons why - having been a major part of their operations for several years at that point. We are absolutely ecstatic that he started The Brooklyn Beats! We know that countless parties and weddings will also agree that it was the best choice to have his team of talented and professional artists rock the house! We can’t wait to renew our vows and work with Jon again!

Choosing a DJ for our wedding was hands down the scariest part of the planning process. We knew that a stellar DJ was imperative for a successful reception, and DJ Matty not only met but exceeded every expectation, making our dream day a reality! Early in the planning, Matty shared an app that was a game-changer to how we approached music for the entire day. This app became our musical headquarters, allowing us to build playlists on Spotify and seamlessly upload them and was so incredibly helpful throughout the process. In our final meeting leading up to the wedding, it was crystal clear just how seriously Matty took his role. He meticulously walked through every moment, discussing our music choices and must-plays to fully grasp the vibes we wanted for each part of the day. Any concerns we had about a surprise bad DJ vanished after that meeting. Beyond being our DJ, Matty also provided uplighting and live musicians for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They flawlessly played the unique songs we chose, setting the perfect tone. Matty's MC skills were phenomenal, keeping the reception flowing smoothly without any cringe-worthy moments – a vital quality for us. I might be biased, but our dance floor was the best I've ever seen. Matty effortlessly got everyone, from all age groups, onto the dance floor, blending our unique song choices with crowd-pleasers that kept the floor packed all night. Even my teenage nieces had the time of their lives! We've received countless compliments from guests about the fantastic music, and we owe it all to Matty. We are immensely grateful for him making our wedding the best day of our lives and will undoubtedly hire him again for future events!

We’re an original band at heart with big dreams, but we’re also just passionate about playing music together in general. We started doing a few cover shows for fun and really enjoyed ourselves and making people dance & have a great time. After learning dozens of songs we curated, we decided to start playing as a cover/wedding band. We have a lot of heart and always try to bring the best possible energy to each performance we do. We mostly do billboard hits covers in various styles, decades and genres. We try and stay true to the sound and feel of the original recording but also try to modernize it and give it our own subtle unique spin.

Found the band after seeing them play @ The Red Lion In Downtown, New York and was blown away by their sound and style. So I reached out to them to play my wedding reception and they absolutely killed it. They played our favorite song “Kiss Me” by Sixpence none the richer for our first dance and it was a really priceless moment. They’re also really friendly and easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend them to play your wedding or event!

As a homegrown, native NYC-based wedding DJ, I allow the music to speak for itself in a way that is organic and authentic. With an elegant & refined approach, I accommodate any eclectic flavor and curate a tasteful wedding celebration all based on your musical preferences. What you won’t get? A stereotypical, cheesy DJ stealing the spotlight and breaking up the music with bad jokes and unnecessary interruptions. You deserve better. Expect a personal and individualized celebration with great music, precise attention to detail and a fun-filled dance party — all based on 15 years of wedding experience.

Joe met with us many times to ease our concerns before our wedding, then did a great job hosting and selecting which tunes to play when. Highly recommend!

THE JON BATES BAND is an amazing dance-oriented “party band” that always gets folks dancing, feeling good and celebrating the occasion! THE JON BATES BAND is a "destination event band". They have literally performed all over the globe, providing an arsenal of abundantly talented musicians and vocalists, who perform an extensive repertoire of popular music in all styles and genres. They have the professionalism and touring experience required to offer clients the highest quality entertainment options on every level, and they have shared stages with some of the most legendary performers on the planet! - find more info at www.JonBatesBand.com

We saw the Jon Bates Band perform at our friends' wedding in Vermont a number of years ago. My now-husband and I knew (before we were even engaged!) that we wanted these guys to play our wedding, should we get to that point together. Fortunately, they travel all over and were happy to come to Delaware for our 10/5/2019 wedding. Communication was smooth throughout the entire process, and they were completely open to working with us on our song list and catering to what we really love most. Their rendition of our first dance song was spot-on to what we hoped it would be. They played a consistently strong set all night and had everyone - and I mean everyone! - up and dancing. I can honestly say that it could not have gone better, nor could we have enjoyed it more. I highly recommend this group of talented musicians.

Monica was professional throughout and communicated really well with me from the moment I booked her to the day of the wedding! She offered to arrange songs for me that may not be on her very comprehensive list. We requested pop songs on strings and the vibe was perfect! I would highly recommend booking Monica to contract and play at your wedding!

The Sugartone Brass Band has been playing private events since 2002. Our first private event was a Christmas Party thrown for the workers of a warehouse owned by a family of Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn. Needless to say, no event is too ‘unique’ for us to handle. From tasteful ceremonial music to fun dance grooves, let us help you celebrate your wedding in style.

Our wedding had different pieces given it was planned during the covid-19 vaccination rollout so we decided to bridge our ceremony on a boat with family to a larger reception at a venue four blocks away. We discussed our vision of having the band warm up of reception guests and parade all of us to the venue. Kenny was so easy to coordinate with regarding our song requests and they were incredible! They even play led happy birthday to some special guests before leaving. Our vibe for vendors was 'good vibes only' and we lucked out with the perfect energy for moment - crucial for our day. Weeks later and our friends and family are still talking about a band that played for two hours of a long party.
