I hate to be "that girl" who just gives 5 stars across the board, but what can I say - 45 Riots earned it.

Booking 45 Riots for our wedding has to be one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. We worked with the band director, Adam Mason, from the start and he was incredibly professional, friendly, and helpful.

We booked 45 Riots for all our music on our wedding day including:

- 4 Piece Quartet for pre-ceremony and ceremony music including guitar with vocals, percussion with vocals, trumpet, and keyboard. They customized an all Beatles playlist for us and were absolutely fabulous. When they started playing "In My Life," my processional song, I was nearly in tears from the music alone.

- 3 Piece Jazz Trio for the cocktail hour including bass, saxophone, and drums. This served as the perfect background music for our guests while we mixed and mingled.

- 9 Piece Band for the dinner and reception including 2 vocalists, a guitarist who also sang, drummer who also sang, bass, guitar, keyboard, trumpet, and saxophone. They played the perfect mix of music for dinner and then pumped it up for the dance floor all night.

Our guests had the time of their lives at our wedding out on the dance floor. I don't think it was ever empty and at the end of the night they started shouting for an encore! Even our older guests who don't or can't dance enjoyed the entertainment and complimented us on our choice of band. My family is from out of state and they're already talking about trying to go see 45 Riots play next time they're in town.

I can't put into words how great their music is. Having a band, specifically 45 Riots, changed the entire vibe of our wedding into something so over the top and fantastic that I hadn't even imagined how great it could be when I was planning it. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We had an amazing time at our wedding, and 45 Riots was unbelievable.

We were having a big wedding with a wide range of ages that we wanted to please, and were worried about finding a band that could manage to keep both our friends and our elderly relatives happy. 45 Riots managed that with no problem whatsoever--they knew instantly how to please our crowd and created an amazing dance party that got everyone having a blast.

45 Riots managed to play music that got all the generations out on the dance floor from the very first minute. They moved from a great hora to older but still upbeat tunes to more contemporary songs over the course of the night. Our friends, our parents' friends, and our families were all commenting on how great the band was. People came up to us to say they were the best wedding band they'd ever heard. My friends were begging for their cards. 45 Riots has amazing energy and fun. And wow, that trombone player!!!

We would use them again in a second. My advice for a couple who is undecided would be to go with 45 Riots and not spend a single extra minute trying to make up your mind. They are professional, talented, fun, and really know how to read a crowd and get the energy up. Our dance floor was packed all night.

We knew we wanted a band who would break the mold of stuffy traditional wedding bands and we found it. They captured our style and the style of our wedding perfectly in their music and had everyone dancing til the end of the night. During the planning phase, Adam meets with you and discusses all of your music preferences and based on that, coordinates who will be in your band, who will play during processional, cocktail hour, dancing, etc. Not only are all of the members of 45 Riots amazing at what they do, but they could not have been nicer and more gracious. Do yourself a favor, save yourself the stress and hire 45 Riots right now.

I can't tell you how much we loved having you guys with us on our wedding night! You will not believe how many of our guests are still talking about the band! Everything was perfect from start to finish! The whole experience from start of planning, to the actual wedding day was a real pleasure. You really made my wedding planning so easy and enjoyable. I feel so blessed and truly lucky to have worked with you and the band to plan such a fun night for our guests. There are really not enough ways to thank you and give you the credit you truly deserve in making our night so fun, so memorable, and exciting for everyone who was there. Thank you again and I wish you and your band, all the continued success you most certainly deserve. We look forward to seeing you guys play live again and again in NYC.

45 Riots played at my wedding and I could not have been happier with their performance. Literally every single person in the room was on the dance floor and I truly felt like I was at a concert watching the band members play. They were upbeat, fun, energetic, and truly amazing to work with. It was such a pleasure working with Adam. He was professional and extremely thorough. We felt very confident in his hands.

Both our event designer and our caterer commented that they have never seen so many people dancing for so long. My husband and I never once sat down at our seats and my mom was shocked that all of her friends were dancing so much. I think it is truly a testament to the talent and energy of 45 Riots.

45 Riots played at my wedding this past October and they were everything! Our guests couldn't stop telling us how great the band was and asking how we found them. Even our wedding planner told us they were the best band she’d ever seen – and you know she’s seen a lot! 45 Riots played for our ceremony and reception and they were great from beginning to end. They played all our requests for the ceremony and processional and it was very touching and sounded great. At the reception, they read the crowd well and kept everyone on the dance floor.

People can't stop talking about how amazing the band was. We really had a incredible time thanks to 45 Riots. These guys are top notch; from the very moment we booked you until the moment our guests were shouting "one more song!" I know our group didn't want the music to end. Our only concern was that the dance floor was not big enough...everyone was dancing! We even had guests take their business cards so they can see them play again in the city. I'd recommend 45 Riots in a heartbeat. One of my bridesmaids just booked them for her wedding

I heard about 45 Riots through a close friend. After seeing them play live at BB Kings in the city I knew I had to have them at our wedding. Adam was wonderful, so easy to bounce ideas off of and always quick to respond to any number of my questions either by phone or email. I felt extremely confident in having them be a part of our day and looking back, I couldn't have imagined it any other way.

I have gotten so many compliments from both our friends as well as older family members, all of whom were on the dance floor. You couldn't help but dance when you saw and heard the band's energy!!

We had 45 Riots play for our wedding on 9/27/14, and we still have people telling us nonstop how unbelievably incredible they were! They had everyone up on the dance floor and were really intuitive at reading the group, so they knew when to play some slower songs or songs for different ages. I can't say enough about how amazing they were every step of the way. Adam was so organized and made me feel so confident that they had all of our requests in mind. It was truly a night we won't forget, in large part to them!

We had the most amazing time with JJ and 45 Riots at our wedding. I can't even put into words how perfect they were. We could not stop dancing and we heard nothing but compliments from our guests. They were so professional, fun and easy to work with and we would recommend 45 Riots to anyone and everyone! The guys knocked it out of the park for us. They were the talk of our wedding, the band was as tight as we knew they would be, but the energy level they put forth was beyond any expectations we had. The band was the engine that made our party as crazy as we wanted it to be and we appreciate the professionalism displayed through every stage of our process with 45 Riots. JJ and his team were pure energy from start to finish and ensured that we will NEVER forget our wedding!
